Mri scan torn meniscus

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan torn meniscus


553692 tn?1215277731 Hi, I have an mri scan results and I thought I simply had a torn meniscus, however my mri showed up, Large bone infarction of the proximal tibia metaphysis and proximal diaphysis. There is also a large bone infarct in the medial femoral condyle which extends to the articular surface, with moderate bone marrow edema. There is a small in farct of the posterior weight bearing surface of the lateral femoral condyle and a mild infarct of the trochlea.
Avatar f tn Surgical repair for torn meniscus of L' Knee. 3 months post-op it buckled, caused tear during fall to R' Knee and meniscus was surgically repaired but has also failed, although the surgeon refuses to order an MRI to "prove" this latest injury. Pain is an issue as I am allergic to all pain meds ordered to date and take nothing for the pain levels of 9-10. Before injury both knees were healthy, minimal arthritic changes on MRI's in spite of age 58 and obesity.
Avatar m tn The large majority of meniscus tears do not have the potential for healing on their own, and physical therapy does not promote healing of the meniscus. I compare a torn meniscus to a pebble in your shoe. Until the pebble is removed, you are still going to have pain. Once the torn meniscus (the pebble) is removed, you can feel better. The incidence risk of arthritis after arthroscopic partial menisectomy is quite low.
Avatar f tn If it is successful then ok otherwise it is certain that ACL or Meniscus or both are teared (as per MRI scan) which will be treated with arthroscopy. My queries- 1) Can above injury is cured with the help of medicines and exercise. 2) Is arthroscopy is the only solution for meniscus and ACL tear. 3) How safe is hroscopy and what information we should know to make sure that we are going right way.
Avatar f tn Injured knee a couple years ago. After putting up with the pain, finally went to ortho when Baker's cyst developed. He suspects torn meniscus, but it did not show on the MRI. PT and cortisone shot did not help. He wants to scope the knee and clean it out. Most days the knee is uncomfortable to walk on, but some days I can barely put weight on it, usually after being on it for more than a couple hours.
Avatar n tn (Ortho guy says he hears this a lot in guys my age) Diagnosis after MRI of Torn Medial Meniscus. Surgeon wants to remove damaged part of meniscus which he tells me is in the area without blood flow. There was also a mention of arthritis. When I pushed for more information he said "arthritis consistent with your age". Don't quite what know what means. Anyway, here the questions.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm 25 yrs old female.I had pain in left knee for 2-3 months ,but it use to go after rest.But after MRI doctor found ,that I 'm having Grade 2 lateral and medial meniscus tear.I'm able to walk without any pain,but when strain is put on the knee like -while sitting,getting up,climbing stairs . Orthopedic says I require an operation.
Avatar n tn I have bad arthritis in my knee. My ortho doc (after MRI) says I tore the meniscus but he thinks arthroscopy is a waste of my time and money since I have such thin cartilage. He took all the fluid out and injected me with cortisone earlier today. The pain is unbearable and the swelling is coming back already. Has anyone had torn meniscus with advanced arthritis and had sucess with arthroscopy. He says I am not ready yet for knee replacement.

Avatar m tn 7 months ago I was playing soccer with my daughter and came down on my leg wrong. I felt immediate pain in my left knee for days. Went to the Orthopedic doctor, who was suspicious of a torn meniscus as the X-Ray didn't show anything. I returned to the doctor a few weeks later after an MRI. The doctor said no tear was seen but you could clearly see a non-displaced fracture in my fibula. He gave me a cortisone shot, pain meds, told me to rest and it would heal in about 10 weeks.
Avatar m tn Hi, The two conditions are probably unrelated. For your knee it sounds as if you may need to have it operated to remove the torn piece of the meniscus. The meniscus doesn't have good blood supply and so it doesn't heal well (if at all). Have an MRI done on the knee and see an orthopedist to discuss your options. Does the bump on your knee hurt and is it soft or hard? If it is hard and if you are young it could be Osgood-Schlatters disease / Syndrome but there could other reasons as well.
Avatar n tn MRI confirms a torn medial meniscus, possible torn PCL, and alot of fluid.
Avatar m tn Essentially, you have two injuries to your knee. The first is a torn medial meniscus, or a torn cartilage. The rest is a description of the shape of the tear. A bucket handle flops back and forth inside the knee, like the handle on a bucket, and can cause pain, locking, and swelling. This treated arthroscopically and will require either repair or removal of the damaged piece of meniscus. The second injury is a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament, (ACL).
Avatar f tn the radiology report says the lateral meniscus looks intact... the ortho thinks the lateral meniscus is torn. Since that meniscus was sutured 18 years ago and the metal fragments make the lateral side hard to see on MRI I'm wondering who is right? We're going to shoot some cortisone in there and I got a new hinged brace. I'm going to ski about 8 days next month on it and see how it feels. We'll make the decisions about where the pain is coming from then. Next actions.....
Avatar m tn m being sent for a bone scan (not sure why), but no MRI. When i meet with my doctor about the bone scan, I will ask about getting an MRI. Thank you for the suggestion.
Avatar f tn Ive had 2 surgeries for a torn meniscus in less than 6 months and while at pt one day I felt something rip in the my kneecap every since its been very painful. I also been falling alot due to pain and knee giving out and there is alot that I cant do.
Avatar f tn 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 m tn 2-There is fluid and edema around the ACL, the radiologist says that it could be from mucoid degeneration, but my OS has a the pictures of my ACL from 3 years ago during the meniscus surgery with no sign of it then. He believes it is partially torn, does this make sense, how long does it take mucoid degeneration to develop? HIs plan is to fix the radial tear in the meniscus, and then probably recontruct the ACL with a hamstring tendon, any help is appreciated.
Avatar n tn 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. Can you please help me understand how severe my case is and what I am supposed to do ? Surgery or just ignore it.
Avatar f tn So my MRI read, I tore my ACL and meniscus. Although swollen and a bit unstable I have No pain in my knee. However my achilles tendon is like a Charlie horse all the time on same leg. I fell off my bike right onto that knee. Now 2 days later I’m having shooting pains on my heel of the other foot It’s been 1 month since the fall. Is this normal? The pain in my tendon and now my other foot on the bottom of my heel.
Avatar f tn Yesterday during our class' Track and Field relay, I fell really badly and I couldn't move my right leg. I was brought to the clinic and they bandaged it and sent me home. My knee is so painful that I can't even walk properly or bend or stretch it. I suspect it may be torn meniscus but my mom thinks it's just sore and bruised a bit. She refuses to take me to the doctor. It started to swell a bit this morning and my mom still won't have it checked.
98474 tn?1240105274 t think that meniscus repair will be of much help. By this stage the meniscuc gets partially torn due to degeneration as well as arthritis. If you can afford and your orthopaedician is convinced, then Total knee replacement would be ideal for you. Just let us know what he said?
Avatar m tn I am surprised how did your doctor adviced you physiotherapy with this torn meniscus. Since you are young, he should have been thinking to preserve your meniscus. I would suggest you to go to a good knee surgeon for proper management. do let us know what you decided.
