What Causes Sticky Tears
Repetitive extension: Multiple causes can lead to extensor carpi ulnaris tendon pathology. The mechanism to "tear" would be loading the tendon by extension and radial deviation repetitively or a significant lift resisting this motion. Secondly inflammatory processes like rheumatoid arthritis and gout can weaken the tendon prior to tear. Finally an old fracture or RA with prominent ulna can compromise the ecu tendon. ...Read more
Retinal traction: Most retinal rears are caused by traction on the retina by the vitreous gel, sometimes in association with weaknesses in the retina related to high eye nearsightedness, retinal injuries, old retinal scarring, etc. As the eye ages, the vitreous gel naturally liquifies and detatches from the retina, a posterior retinal detachment. Residual areas of traction can cause retinal tears/detachment. ...Read more
Depends on age, etc: In young, healthy adults, vaginal tears are usually related to trauma (rough or under-lubricated intercourse) or infection such as a yeast infection. Yeast infections are also common in infants and children. As we enter menopause, hormone changes can cause severe dryness and skin tearing, and again leave us more susceptible to infection. Other skin conditions and medications may also cause tearing. ...Read more
Age: The vitreous jelly changes as we age and it pulls away from the back of the eye (retina) - a posterior vitreous detachment. During this process, if the jelly pulls hard enough on the retina (especially in a thin or weak area) it can tear the retina which can subsequently detach. Other risk factors include myopia, cataract surgery, head/eye trauma, family history, lattice degeneration, etc. ...Read more

Doubtful: The tfcc is a cartilage and ligamentous complex that extends from the ulnar styloid to the ulnar border of the radius and acts to stabilize the distal radial ulnar joint. It is deep within the wrist joint and cutting your wrists would not affect this structure. It is typically injured secondary to a fall on hyper extended wrist or with repetitive trauma. ...Read more

Is there an underlying cause to numerous meniscus tears over time? I'm a healthy, active 32 year old female who has had multiple tears over 14 years
No specific cause: There is not likely a specific underlying cause. Once a knee has an injury, it is no longer a stable as it once was and has a higher risk of re-injury. As you injury it multiple times that re-injury risk goes up. At times genetics can play a role as can being involved in the same activities that caused the injury in the first place. Furthermore, body mechanics can be a factor. ...Read more
