What is bone marrow edema around the superior calcaneous?

Unclear question

Bones
Bone marrow edema is not a clinical entity. If you have swelling in the foot or ankle, that could be due to many reasons, e.g., local injury, or abnormal veins; if both sides are affected, then it may be due heart failure, low blood protein, and side effect of some medications.

Dr. Sewa Legha answered:

Can bone marrow disease produce only minimal effects on the body?

It varies greatly

Bones
Bone marrow has lots of reserve, so it can be partly diseased, yet the body has no effect. But once the bone marrow is completely diseased or damaged, Then the body will have all kinds of effects in the form of Anemia(low Hemoglobin), low WBC and low Platelet counts and the complications of infections and bleeding as a result of low blood counts.

Possible bone marrow disease if they can't find a cause for your anemia?

Yes

Blood
Hello dpatrick8. I am not quite sure what you are asking, but if the cause of anemia is not obvious after a detailed history, physical examination, and blood testing, a bone marrow biopsy is frequently performed to determine the cause.

After a patient has had bone marrow disease, how can isolating them help to prevent rejection?

Confusing

Bones
Can you restate your quetion? Are you talking about a bone marrow transplant? Isolation is required to prevent infections in people after bone marrow transplants, as the immune system is profoundly suppressed for a number of weeks and beyond.

is bone edema the same as bone marrow edema ?

Yes

Bones
Bone marrow is located in the interior of your bones. Bone marrow has blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. Under certain disease processes and trauma to the bone, the lymphatic or blood vessels get damaged, they leak out fluid and cause edema.

Will bone marrow edema go away?

Depends

Open-uri20130827-9320-x2qnvd
Bone marrow edema is a term first used in 1988 to describe an abnormal signal pattern seen on the MRI of bone (usually of hip or knee) due to increased water content in the spongy bone portion called the marrow. Some doctors (orthopedics) may loosely use the term to describe resulting traumatic injury like a bruise to the bone in which case may resolve with healing in a few days.
