Hi, I just had an MRI done of my Lt knee, and the results are as follow. Patella alta with subluxation, joint effusion, and cartrilage loss over central?
See below. Patella alta means your knee cap is riding somewhat higher than normal; similarly subluxation refers to an abnormal position between the two bones that make up a joint; these conditions can lead to cartilage loss on the undersurface of the knee cap known as chondromalacia. Don't hesitate to discuss directly with doctor.
Follow up to dr harvey; had mri, shows grade 2&3 tears, joint effusion & chrondomalacia patella & patella tilt. Both knees snapped in when I fell?
Surgery. Your condition sounds pretty bad. Orthopedic consultation should be considered. Read more...
Why pain after cortizone (hydrocortisone) injection. Mri says grade 2/3 sprain in both knee mcls, joint effusion, patella tilt &chrondomalica patella. Result of fall.
Patella femoral . If your pain is in front/under your knee cap, then most likely chondromalacia patella. Best managed with exercise to strengthen your quads to improve tracking, and avoiding deep knee bending activities. Also oral or topical nsaids can be of benefit, as well as a brace. Injection of cortisone or hyaluronic acid also very popular. Mcl injuries can be braced & need time not cortisone injections. Read more...
