What Does Truncation Of The Apical Free Margin Of The Lateral Meniscal Body Mean This Mri Was Done After Having Surgery
What does truncation of the apical free margin of the lateral meniscal body mean? This MRI was done after having surgery.
Post op changes: The radiologist is describing the part of your lateral meniscus (cartilage pad in the middle of your knee on the outside half of the joint) that looks different than it usually does, like it was cut or shaved down or there was a torn rim of the cartilage that was removed. Your ortho surgeon should be able to confirm that is what he did in the surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
What does apical truncation of the free edge of the body of the medial mensicus with some medial extrusion mean? This was seen on a knee mri?
Probable tear.: It "sounds like" a description of a meniscal tear. I'd need the images to be certain, ask your doctor, if there is still confusion, ask him to review the case with the radiologist. ...Read more

There is a apical truncation of the free edge of the body of the medial meniscus with some medial extrusion no tear seen what does this mean? Help
Osteoarthritis: This is typically seen with osteoarthritis. As the joint space narrows the meniscus can be extruded or pushed out of the joint space. You should be evaluated by an orthopedist if you are having pain. There are several treatment options including physical therapy, nsaid's, and injections. ...Read more
What does a slight superior displacement of the meniscal root mean? Please explain this was seen on a mri? Does that need surgery to fix?
Mri shows oblique nondisplaced tear posterior horn and body medial meniscus, medial meniscal protrusion into the medial gutter. Will i need surgery?
Surgery : Surgery is most likely needed to resolve your problem. Meniscus tears simply do not heal on their own, regardless of conservative treatment (including prolotherapy). It is possible that your symptoms of pain, etc will improve with time without surgery...But that doesn't mean the tear healed. In fact, the tear will most likely get bigger leading to additional damage if not taken care of soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Female, 69, physically very active, good health, with left knee pain and decreased range of motion.
Mri :complex medial meniscal tear.
Probably: If you have a complex tear of the medial meniscal cartilage, then it usually does not heal on its own. Limited range of motion can occur when the cartilage is broken or flipped out of position. If your pain persist, you will probably need endoscopic surgery. Ask your doctor for a referral to an Orthopedic Doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What does mucoid degeneration of the medial meniscus mean? Seen on MRI. Also what does truncation mean of the posterior horn attaching roots mean?Help
Mri shows oblique tearof the medial meniscus body which reaches the free edge...does this mean surgery for me? Is this a big tear?
Surgery an option : Debridement or limited partial removal of a torn meniscus is one of the most common Orthopaedic procedures performed. Not all meniscal tears, however, require surgery. Pain and mechanical symptoms thought due to the tear that persists for 6-12+ weeks despite adequate and appropriate nonoperative treatment (rest, ice, ace wrap, NSAIDs and therapy) makes a strong case for arthroscopic intervention. ...Read more
6 month injury. MRI: reads chronic subcentimeter avulsion fx lateral navicular with sclerotic margins and cystic changes. Will this require surgery?
My MRI says I have a horizontal tear in the body of the lateral meniscus. Am I going to need surgery?
What do you suggest if my MRI says that I have a horizontal tear in the body of the lateral meniscus is shown do I need surgery?
Yes, if...: If you have meniscal tear symptoms ( pain, catching , swelling) esp. w / twisting , pivoting or squatting and the MRI is well done than knee arthroscopy can be very helpful for horizontal, cleavage tears of the lateral meniscus. This type of tear is commonly seen w/ Bakers' cysts.See an experienced arthroscopist. Best of Luck! ...Read more
Could someone please tell me what it means when neck MRI done 3 times in a month 1 w/contrast all say artifact. No surgery Ever at neck. I'm confused.
MRI artifact: Artifact obscuring portions of the image aren't always due to surgical hardware. There are many sources of artifact. Patient motion can cause artifact. In particular, neck MRI can be susceptible to artifact from swallowing during the examination, as well as blood vessel pulsation artifact from neck vessels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
