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 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 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 n tn I just had MRI L knee, shows small joint effusion and myxoid degenerative changes of the anterior horn lateral meniscus what does this mean, surgery?
Avatar f tn No Occult Fracture or Bone Contusion, Mild Subchondral Degerative Bony Changes to the Femoral Condyles Anteriorly, Moderate Knee Joint Effusion, Probable Myxoid Degeneration to the Posterior Body Portion of the Medial Meniscus without Meniscal Tear, Correlated Appearance to the Patellar Tendon without Acute Tear. Focal Degenerative Tendinosis Noted at the Proximal Portion of the Patellar Tendon. I have NO clue with this all means. Please Help!
Avatar f tn The pain is usually felt in the whole knee area, predominantly in the front, along with increasing stiffness and effusion in the knee joint. With advancing time patient will not be able to put weight and diminished motion in the joint. Diagnosis can be made with the help of X-rays. Revision operation can be considered if there is unbearable pain, progression of osteolysis and loss of function. If left untreated loosening can lead to repeated fractures.
Avatar n tn Looks like a healthy knee. Sunrise/merchant view would be helpful to look at your patellofemoral joint. Are stairs your problem or prolonged kneeling? If so, then patellofemoral joint arthrosis. If you have locking/catching/clicking and pain on the inside/medial of your knee then likely meniscus tear. If the pain is bad enough, I'd see your PCP who can get an MRI to rule out other things such as meniscus, ACL, OCD lesions, PVNS, etc. Try nsaids, home pt, quad stretching/strengthening.
Avatar m tn Myxoid degeneration of medial meniscus posterior horn with knee joint effusion and suspected partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament for which clinical correlation is adviced". I get only right knee MRI due to its cost, but I'm suffering of similar pain on both knees. What does this mean? Is there any treatment I can do at home to relief the pain? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I was involved in an accident where the MRI states I have moderate cartilage loss around patella, joint effusion and a marginal flap on patella ridge. This has cased popping, grinding painful sensations in the knee. Its very hard for me to walk as I'm always limping ect......Is sergury recommended for this?
Avatar n tn I had an injury 2 months back and I'm asked to take MRI . and my reports are under: Bones alignment & signal intensities are normal. * Minimal free fluid noted in joint space - Effusion * Anterior & posterior cruciate ligaments appears normal. * Collateral ligaments are normal. * Horizontal grade II tear involving posterior horn of medial meniscus. * Patella, patellar tendon and quadriceps tendon shows no obvious signal alterations.
Avatar m tn Well, your MRI shows evidence of degeneration or severe damage to the menisci and the lining cartilage of the bones that form the knee joint. The menisci are fibrocartilaginous semicircular structures located one on either side, that help to decrease the contact area between the bones; thus reducing friction and serve as ‘shock absorbers’, aiding in smooth movements.
Avatar n tn My MRI has indicated in my left knee, early osteoarthritic changes with degenerative changes in posterior horn of medial meniscus and moderate joint effusion. I have been prescribed zycholchin, orcerin,ccm, vit D I wish to know.............. •Should I restrict walking? • Should I restrict using stairs? •Can I drive car-or should I keep a driver? •Should I do quadriceps exercise or not? Any other precautions I need to take?
Avatar f tn You would need surgery as meniscus are very important ligaments in the knee joint and spontaneous healing is difficult. Take care!
