Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage mri


Avatar n tn The other area in which there is cartilage loss in at the outer part of the main thigh bone at the knee joint. However the rest cartilage disc in between the knee joint appear normal from this report. With regards to treatment, a lot of decisions are based on the clinical picture - how much this is affecting you and your activities and what the knee is like on examination. I hope this has been of some help and has answered your questions.

Avatar m tn I recently had an MRI of my knee and lower back.. However I don't know what the diagnosis means. If any one can answer it would be greatly appreciated.. My knee diagnosis is"there is a deep fissuring in the central patellar cartilage that is full thickness.. There is underlying reactive change in the patella..." My back diagnosis is "at L5 S1 there is a mild diffuse disc buldge without central or forminal stenosis..
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 31 old male, I am 5.3 tall and my weight is 110 Pounds. I play tennis and squash from time to time. This is my second MRI after a 1 year. The previous MRI showed that I have a Medial meniscus tear. I was so happy to see that after 1 year, the Meniscus tear disapparead from the MRI report without doing any surgery or rehab. But this time I did the MRI on my both knees and it looks like I have some issue with my cartillage.
Avatar f tn Is it common for the cartilage in your knee to rapidly thin? I had an xray and MRI was told I had a meniscus tear. I had arthoscopic surgery and had the tear "fixed". I was told everything looks good, no arthritis. Shortly after the surgery I experienced sevre pain and was unable to put any weight on my that leg.
Avatar f tn Your report discusses the condition of your (knee) meniscus - they are found in other body joints. In your instance, Meniscus refers to the cartilage of your knee, both the lateral or medial meniscus. In medical terms Lateral means side(s) and Medial means the middle or lying near the middle. It reveals some wear and tear, thinning - with possible surgical changes to the meniscus. Chondral means pertaining to cartilage - the meniscus is made up of cartilage.
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 f tn net/sport-injuries/knee-pain/acute-knee-injuries/knee-articular-cartilage-injury Your accident could have caused this or it could have been happening over time. But either way, that is now seen, it's now a fact of your knee. Sorry about that! RICE is often applied to help with it. (rest, ice, compression and elevation) to reduce swelling. Doctor can give a professional ice wrap. If doc says it's okay, you can take ibuprofen. Some people are okay with just that.
Avatar f tn The X-ray showed nothing and the MRI showed thinning of the cartilage. It somtimes feels like something gets in the way in the front of my knee and then stepping down on it is extremely painful. I could be walking fine one minute and the next limping from the pain shooting through my knee. There was never a definate diagnosis. He told me to come back when my knee flared up again but the last flare up hasn't really ever ended. It clicks all the time.
Avatar f tn I used to play a lot of soccer and have not in years, but I remember having knee and ankle pain quite often, enough so that I frequently wore knee braces and wrapped both ankles. Recently I started playing golf, and after playing one day I noticed some knee pain. I don't remember a specific incident or the actual onset of pain - it just seemed to gradually appear.
Avatar n tn MRI---all ligaments etc...are good. Had no problems with my knee until this fall in early January. I fell directly on my knee, tore pants and the skin off my knee. About 8 hours after the fall I went to do a complete squat (to the floor) and it took my breath away. I have difficulty kneeling on it and squatting and getting back up. Bending knee to put pants on is not comfortable.
Avatar m tn Right Knee: FINDINGS: The medial and lateral menisci both appear normal. No meniscal tear is seen. The ACL and PCL are intact. The collateral ligaments are unremarkable. The extensor mechanism appears normal. Diffuse cartilage irregularity is noted along the patellar apex and the medial facet with full-thickness cartilage fissuring and fibrillation along the medial patellar facet. No other focal cartilage defects are seen. The bone and bone marrow are normal.
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 :).
Avatar n tn As the protective cartilage is worn away by knee arthritis, bare bone is exposed within the joint. And when this bone participates in movement severe pain is caused. Knee arthritis typically affects patients over 50 years of age. It is more common in patients who are overweight, and weight loss tends to reduce the symptoms associated with knee arthritis. There is also a genetic predisposition to this condition.
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 I saw an orthopedic surgeon and was told it was either a possible tear in my acl, strain, or cartilage damage. The MRI came back negative. I decided to just play through the pain because it wasnt unbearable and the season was almost over. I went to lacrosse camp and it really started bothering me. I went back to the doctor and was told to start physical therapy. I did therapy for 6 weeks with no positive outcome. The doctor prescribed 4 more weeks of pt and if that didnt work then surgery.
1524655 tn?1291420532 The pain has gotten less indeed. However, after reading articles about articular cartilage, I understand that articular cartilage has limited ability for healing, escpecially if its not all the way to the bone (Grade 4). Although the surgeon said "no surgery needed", I still don't undertand how things would get better... How could my grade 2 defect possibly heal, since it is not all the way to the bone?
Avatar m tn cfm Other causes of knee locking are torn medial meniscus, knee cap mal-alignment, osteoarthritis, knee arthritis, torn lateral meniscus, Osteochondritis dissecans - occasional knee locking with instability, Recurrent patella dislocation - may cause knee locking or knee collapse, Chondromalacia patella - occasional locking or knee collapse, Knee alignment problem, Knee fragment or Knee cartilage disorder. Hope this helps. Do not ignore it. Consult an orthopedic specialist.
