13 x 4 mm ganglion cyst at the proximal medial gastrocnemius attachment 3. Partial thickness cartilage fissure medial patellar facet does this require surgery?
Please explain the following information, so I can understand what are the MRI findings on my left knee. 1. Mild diffuse thinning of articular cartilage in the medial tibio-femoral articulation. 2. Small fissure in the femoral articular cartilage at the patella-femoral joint. 3. Patella mildly laterally subluxed. 4. Large amount of joint effusion.
2. Involving the cartilage of the apex and lateral facet of the patella, there is diffuse signal heterogeneity with surface irregularity and fissuring to the bone. In addition, there is a cartilaginous fissure to the bone involving the lateral tibial plateau. 3. Linear signal in the semimembranosus tendon compatible with tendinosis.
Hi Linda! The ‘fissure of the knee cartilage under the patella’ can be corrected by braces, taping, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, physiotherapy or surgery. Minimally invasive surgery would involve debridement and chondroplasty. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
A physical exam is always done to check for medial or lateral knee pain. Popping or clicking in knee, this indicated cartilage tear and MRIs are not always full proof. The underlying problem is usually treated first and may require a diagnostic arthroscopy. Cyst may resolve on its own or be drained and in rare situations be surgically removed. A knee arthroscopy and menisectomy or debridement requires three small incisions and you will be on your feet the same day.

In otherwords, the cartilage and meniscus are torn in my knee. My Orthopedic doctor says he has to operate to repair the tear, but my chiropractor does not want me to do the operation.
Back in 2003 I had an ACL Reconstruction on my left knee and have not had issues since then. Over the past month in a half I started having issues and have done nothing to the knee. I ended up having an MRI last week and don't see the doctor until tomorrow, but trying to figure out what this MRI is telling me. I'm thinking its not too good, but thought I could get someone to help me understand it. It will be a little bit lengthy, but here goes....

there are the hyoglossus muscles running up to the sides of the tongue, the constrictor pharyngis medius muscles that wrap around and meet at the back of the throat, and the thyrohyoid ligament running downward to the thyroid cartilage, but nothing that would anchor the cornu or any other part of the throat to a specific location.
