Knee joint space

Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint space


Avatar n tn I will post a picture of my knee x-ray, I want to ask if everything is alright and normal, mainly I ask about the joint space. 24 year old, male, fintess enthusiast. I have lateral pain on the surface of my knee and the doctors are looking for the right diagnosis. https://imgur.
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.
1652468 tn?1302900498 A dr can drain the fluid out of the joint by inserting a needle into the knee joint and drawing it out. Personally, I would only let an orthopedic surgeon do it. 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.
1083310 tn?1260107282 s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint and is needed for the joint to work properly. There are no known drug interactions. Just let your doctor know all your meds tho. There are some side effects that may occur but I didn't have any.
Avatar f tn If you had recently fallen and hurt your knee, you might have had a bleeding inside your joint and collection of blood in the joint space along with some fracture. I would advise you to immediately see an orthopedician and get an x-ray or a MRI of the affected joint done. Please do not ignore it.
Avatar f tn the medial compartment of the knee joint space is reduced. I notices a hard swelling on the left side of the knee. pls help out what could be the problem, and what possible treatment and exercise can i get. the injury is 6weeks now.
Avatar m tn There is T2 hyperintense fluid collection in the suprapetellar bursa and joint space. No evidence of any capsular or synovial thickening is seen. There is T2 hyperintense signal intensity in the lateral tibial condyle- suggestive of marrow edema/ bone contusion. Rests of the periarticular bones are normal in signal intensity. Patella is normal in signal intensity. Hoffa pad of fat reveals normal signal intensity. IMPRESSION: Study reveals ACL rupture with disruption.
Avatar n tn When fluid is outside of the actual joint space, and in the soft tissues surrounding the knee, the most common cause is prepatellar bursitis. This condition causes fluid accumulation in the bursa just on top of the kneecap. Usually the fluid can be felt on top of the kneecap, rather than underneath the kneecap. Physical examination by doctor is necessary, to determine what fluid it is and depending upon that whether to remove the fluid or use antibiotics can be decided. All the best.
Avatar f tn the pain moves in joint space, you must feel you are unable to straighten your knee and pain get worst. your knee become frail, swell and stiff. The pain lasts for a long time. If you have any of these symptoms, contact to a Orthopedist.
Avatar m tn Well a burning feeling in the knee could be indicative of infection/inflammation of the joint space like arthritis/ bursitis/ tendonitis, ilio-tiboal band syndrome, injuries like meniscal or cartilage tears, fractures, patellar dislocation, nerve impingent, neuropathy etc. Without an evaluation and probably a few tests, it would be difficult to point out a single cause.
Avatar f tn - Joint space well maintained. Mild tricompartmental spurring and a small joint effusion noted. Is it over for my knee I need it to get back to normal so I can be fit.PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME.
Avatar m tn The MRI describes degenerative changes of the knee joint with loss of cartilage that lines the part of the bones that forms the joint and inflammatory degeneration of the patellar tendon and tendon of the gastrocnemius muscle; associated with inflammation and increased fluid secretion within the joint. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Mild tricompartmental osteoarthritis manifested by loss of joint space,marginal osteophytes and mild cartilage loss. No full thickness cartilage defects.4.Knee joint effusion with no osteochondral intraaticular bodies. 5. Bilobed popliteal cyst.Cortison injections were given I have had problems since I had syvinal injections which worked for 7 months. Pain in knee and the gel injections a second time in April. Knee pain has returned. I also have RA and have been on Plaqunil for a few months.

Avatar f tn At 15 years old playing basketball I tore my lateral meniscus and ended up having a bucket handle tear needing a partical menisectomy. After the surgery the pain did not really go away, I did rehab, I went to physical therapy but it just got worse and worse. After running a full track and basketball season I couldn't take the pain anymore and asked them to go in again, and they found a horizontal cleabage tear that had been there for nearly a year... So I'm now 18.
Avatar m tn LAT report is reduction in the patellofemoral and medial tibiofemoral joint space formation of osteophytes seen at articles margins and for right knee reduction in the reduction in the patellofemoral and medial femoral joint space formation of articular margins. the visualused bones are normal in architecture and alignment. no bony lesion or break is seen. surrounding soft tissues are normal in appearance. Impression of left knee: Osteosrthiritis and for right knee: F/S/O Osteoarthiritis.
Avatar n tn Slightly less marked osteoarthritis joint space narrowing is also noted with small marginal osteophytes. Both Knees: slight joint space narrowing.
Avatar m tn Body can heal over time, but it needs not to be stressed and body weight is stressful. Do things that will allow the joint more space to heal and get body fluids in it. So gentle distractions of the tibia away from the femur and loosen the muscles of the calves, quadriceps, and hamstrings. Rest is helpful, so is proper exercise, but Type A go getters might take this too far and reinjure the area.
Avatar n tn It can be due to sciatica, arthritis(osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis),trochanteric bursitis(Inflammation of the sacs or space around the joint), Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity, strain or sprain of the muscles due to its overuse or infection of the hip joint leading to necrosis. Since it is sharp stabbing pain,so chances of sciatica are more. Without physical examination it is very difficult to make a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Mild thickening of the quadriceps tendon. Mild joint space narrowing of the medial compartment and questionable increased density of the proximal tibia. Would like to ask what is the recommended threatment for this kind of medical conditions. I have been limping if pain medications effect is gone. Appreciate your response.
Avatar f tn Hello Just need some help with knee xray report I had pain and swelling in knee and could not bend it, it came on suddenly so I went and had xray and this is the report Mild reduction in joint space is seen at the lateral facet of the patello-femoral joint. Osteophytic lipping is seen at the margins of the patello-femoral joint and lateral femoro-tibial compartment. no focal bone erosion is seen.
Avatar f tn There is a defect in the cartilage covering the surface of the thigh bone that forms the knee joint and a similar defect in the bone of the lower leg with associated degenerative/ inflammatory changes. There are two small body bodies seen within the joint with increased fluid in the joint space. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn Severe joint pain in the knee and later also in the fingers. The knee thing turned out to be ostenecrosis where the femur of my right leg was dying. now I think this was all caused by the Tamoxifen, but what matters is that my vit D was very, very low, and it is in many people with cancer and bc. After I found supplements that were effective, and the D normalized, my leg and knee went back to normal. it just started one day without any injury or provocation and it stopped the same way.
Avatar f tn I can pin-point exactly where the pain is (it moves around the knee and elbow joint) just by touching it. I can also feel a constant throbbing pain without even touching my knees or elbows. I have not been responsive to icing it, physical therapy, several anti-inflammatory medications, a cortisone shot, prescription pain medication, and fibromyalgia medication (Lyrica). I have never experienced any sort of swelling nor do I feel stiff in my joints.
