Knee cartilage cyst

Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage cyst


Avatar n tn I am a 53 yr old female, who danced & taught Ballet for 36 yrs, now retired. I also have MS & RA. 15 yrs ago, I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee for torn cartilage; I've never had any problems w/ that knee since. Until several months ago.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. Cyst at the back of the knee is usually Baker’s cyst. This causes pain in the knee. You can consider the removal of this cyst and see if pain subsides. All the best.
Avatar f tn Moderately thinned with full thickness denuded cartilage across the central weightbearing aspect measuring 7 mm wide x 11 mm AP. Lateral tibial plateau cartilage: Mildly thinned peripherally. No lateral joint line osteophytosis. Medial meniscus: Grossly intact. Medial femoral condyle cartilage: Mildly thinned. Medial tibial plateau cartilage: Minimally thinned. No medial joint line osteophytosis.
Avatar m tn So far, they want to core out the affected bone, and take a piece of bone and cartilage from one of my knee regions so that they can transplant the bone from there to where the OCD was. I was told that none of the surgeons in this whole group has never done this exact procedure. I was told something about them being unable to reach the affected region and may have to break another bone in order to get to it.
Avatar f tn Draining is different from a cyst removal in case a cyst existed and which seems very probable.
Avatar f tn My MRI showed a non-displaced horizontal tear in the posterior horn and body reaching the inferior articular surface. Medial Femoral Condyle large areas of predominantly high grade (>50% thickness) cartilage loss/fissuring with smaller area of full thickness cartilage loss/fissuring. Patella: low grade <50% thickness cartilage loss/fissuring at the apex. Trochlea: small area of full thickness cartilage loss/fissuring. Small joint effusion. No synovium.
Avatar n tn I had a bad fall about a year ago where I landed full force onto my knee which resulted in swelling and bruising that went from my knee down to my foot. I had pain on certain movements from then on. When I would get up sometimes my knee felt like it gave out. Also since then I have not been able to kneel down without pain in the kneecap.
Avatar f tn There is mild intermediate intensity intrasubstance signal within the menisci but no discrete tear evident extending to an articular surface. The medial and lateral compartment hyaline cartilage appears preserved. With the knee in extension there is lateral patellar tilt with approximate 3mm lateral patellar subluxation. Probably mild fibrillation hyaline cartilage patellofemoral compartment predominantly lateral. Patellar retinacula are intact. Marrow signal is normal.
Avatar f tn There is something called Bakers Cyst that can cause behind knee pain . it is a build up of fluid behind the knee,.I think a visit to the Pediatrician is in order to get it checked ..
Avatar m tn i am in a ton of pain and lose sleep over it. I am a 30 y/o male and have right knee issues from an acl tear from an injury in 2006 with acl repair surgery in 2010. The MRI report from my visit in August 2016 is as follows: FINDINGS: Previous ACL repair with susceptibility artifact resulting from femoral anchor. The graft is torn. The PCL is intact. The fibular collateral and medial collateral ligaments are intact.
Avatar f tn Well, you've landed on the multiple sclerosis board, but having recently dislocated my knee, I've also had a knee mri and a visit with an orthopedic surgeon and physiotherapists. I would think this is a relatively normal knee (depending on your age). I imagine they were evaluating you for a torn ACL/PCL/meniscus? I expect there is another board with members who will be more helpful :).
253496 tn?1235227685 From the results of your MRI the source of the fluid in the cyst, and probably in your knee, is the degenerative cartilage in your patellofemoral joint. This may respond to NSAID's, bracing, an injection of cortisone, or physical therapy. Once the patella issues are adressed, the cyst should resolve.
254714 tn?1316613355 for the cervical spondylosis the following medical procedures will help restore the cartiliage to its well being # mosaicplasty or osteochondral autograft transplantation surgery - surgeon removes plug of bone with cartilage covering from healthy area of the joint and transplants it to the damaged area # periosteal flap - surgeon removes a portion of the periosteum (connective tissue covering all bones) from shin and transplants it to the area of cartilage damage # autologous chondrocyte implan
Avatar m tn Fluid signal intensity structure along the posterior knee joint may relate to ganglion cyst or more focal fluid. (The only part I understand of this, is I have a Baker's cyst). Okay, the doctor tried to explain this to me, but I had a hard time understanding everything...what is going on besides the stress fracture and baker's cyst? Thank you!! Any help is greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn A Baker cyst is swelling caused by fluid from the knee joint which may have protruded to the back of the knee.Osteoarthritis, cartilage tears, rheumatoid arthritis any of these conditions can lead to the formation of this cyst. There can be protrusion of fluid down the leg between the muscles of the calf or rupture of the cyst. Diagnosis can be confirmed by examination and radiologically.Other possibility is phlebitis of the leg. See a doctor. Treatment will be specific based on the cause.
Avatar f tn I can move them around with my finger. It is right on my knee cap. I have had runners knee and had a few falls on my knee in my life. It does not hurt that bad unless I stand or walk for a while. Im assuming its loose bodies/cartilage but im not sure if you can have those by the surface of your skin above the kneecap? What do you think this is and should I see a doctor for treatment? I hope this makes sense!
Avatar n tn A study shows that you can regrow knee cartilage. The technique used in this study spurs knee cartilage to grow back, which could cut pain and improve knee function, wrote Kevin Stone, MD, and colleagues. Stone's study appears in The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery.
Avatar f tn MRI says- severe bone bruising and bleeding, micro fractures of tibia, 2 complex menus all tears-anterior and posterior, grade2-3 cartilage thinning, fluid above knee and in knee behind patella, bathers cyst, ligament strain, some bone growth and early osteoarthritis. What the hell do I do- I am thinking lose weight, swim, take chondritin, glucosamine, vitamin c, see a knee surgeon... what I DONt want is a knee replacement. It is a bit stiff, swollen and aches.
Avatar f tn Here are the results of my boyfriend's knee x-ray and MRI. Should this heal on its own or will he need surgery? Previous findings with xray: Minimal narrowing of the medial tibiofemoral and patellofemoral joint spaces on left side. MRI findings: Complex, unstable tear of the medial meniscus body and posterior horn. High grade ACL tear through the mid-proximal fibers.
378273 tn?1262097621 I sustained a knee injury 3 months ago. MRI showed Baker's Cyst with debris, subchondral fracture, torn meniscus partially stripped MCL, joint effusion and near-complete cartilate denudation in the lateral patellofemaral joint. Got a cortisone shot, which only helped a little.Ortho doctor called the fracture a bone bruise and said they take months to heal. The torn meniscus won't heal (he said) Other than a "scope" what can I do to get relief!
Avatar m tn Grade I, softening of the cartilage; Grade II, fissures; Grade III, partial thickness loss of cartilage; Grade IV, exposure of subchondral bone. The problem with hyaline cartilage, which is what covers the bones inside of joints, is that it cannot regenerate itself. It has limited repair capabilities. If it does repair a small portion of the articular cartilage, it is with fibrocartilage. Fibrocartilage is sort of a scar for cartilage.
