You should probably, at the very least, have it scoped but it would depend on the your xrays and how much actually joint space is left due to arthritis.
Avatar m tn Vague, poorly localized knee pain, as well as morning stiffness or recurrent effusion. If a loose body is present, mechanical symptoms of locking or catching of the knee joint also may be reported. Quadriceps atrophy or tenderness along the involved chondral surface is noted. A mild joint effusion may be present. Kindly see an orthopedic surgeon in this regard. If you have any further queries do get in touch with me.
Avatar n tn There are ligaments in the knee joint which would have become lax,there is a fliud in the joint which would have effluxed as well.Consult an orthopaedician and wear creep bandage tightly to minimise movements at the knee joint . If the situation demands you can have a injection in the knee joint,it releives you of pain.
Avatar n tn The ACL is not identified in its expected location, suggesting persistent complete tear. There is a moderate joint effusion. There is mild bony spurring of the medial and lateral compartments. The medial and lateral collateral ligaments, PCL and quadricepts and patellar tendons show no abnormalities. Impression: Cronic ACL and lateral meniscal tears with development of some attenuation of the lateral meniscus (possibly postsurgical, recommended clinical correlation). Moderate effusion.
Avatar n tn Cartilaginous fissure with small cortical disruption seen medial patellar facet. Small joint effusion. Otherwise unremarkable MRI of the right knee.
Avatar f tn No acute fracture or joint dislocation is identified involving the left knee. Bones of the left knee do appear somewhat under mineralized relative to the right knee. Areas of sclerosis within the lateral tibial plateau and lateral femoral condyle are demonstrated, as well as within the distal femoral metaphysis. One or all of these sclerotic foci may represent sequelae of avascular necrosis given reported history. No significant joint space narrowing is identified.
Avatar f tn There is a small cyst subcentimeter in size in the medial femoral condyle. There is joint effusion. There is a large fluid collection the popliteal fossa with the appearance suggesting a Baker's - type cyst; measures 5.2 cm in length in the craniocaudal dimension and 3.6 cm in coronal dimension and 2.9 cm in sagittal dimension the axial plane of largest cross section. Collection appears to entend to the joint on the medial side.
Avatar m tn However, since big tears usually do not repair fully, partial or complete removal of meniscus (meniscectomy) is performed. If conservative treatment to reduce joint effusion does not help, you may need knee replacement. 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.
Avatar m tn Mild joint effusion with synovial reaction, few hypointensities along it and fluid in the suprapatellar bursa. Small popliteal cyst noted. The midline cystic septated structure anteriorly in the knee joint a is suggestive of synovial cist.
