Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis effusion


Avatar f tn This is the report from MRI Osteoarthritis in the left shoulder with cartilage erosion and mild joint effusion associated with osteoarthritis in the acromioclavicular joint with mild impingement over the superior surface of the left supraspinatus muscles. No ratator cuff tear or tissue retraction no muscles astrophy.
Avatar m tn moderate osteoarthritis with small to moderate joint effusion sever menisci.
Avatar m tn Grade 2 degenerative change lateral meniscus. 3. Large joint effusion. 4. Osteoarthritis medial joint space and to a lesser extent patello femoral joint. 5. Mild bone bruising medial femoral condyle.
454422 tn?1211419425 ) Although the prevalence of Baker cysts in patients with inflammatory arthritis is higher than in patients with osteoarthritis, osteoarthritis is much more common than inflammatory arthritis. Using ultrasonography, Fam and colleagues found that 21 of 50 patients (42%) with osteoarthritis had Baker cysts.5 Bilateral cysts were seen in 8 patients (16%). The occurrence of Baker cysts relates directly to the presence of knee effusion and the severity of the osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn Moderate left hip efft slon is present. Soft Tissues: Normal. No evldencr: of muscle or tendon injury about the hip, Limited evaluation of intrapelvic soft tissues is normal. No abnormal fluid in the trochanteric bursa to suggest bursitis, IMPRESSION: Advanced osteoarthritis of the lef~ hip is of uncertain etiology, but likely associated with bone on bone apposition, resorptive reformation, and complete maceration of the anterosuperior and superior aspects of the labrum.
Avatar m tn 42 year old with osteoarthritis in both knees and feet in constant pain (20mcg Butrans patch) seeks help with my MRI results. “There is trochlear dysplasia with obliquely oriented trochlear groove and facet asymmetry. There are degenerative changes involving lateral patellar articular cartilage with subchondral bone changes suggesting grade 3-4 chondromalacia. These changes are in keeping with patellofemoral instability. Normal appearances of medial and lateral meniscus.
4210566 tn?1353012483 Findings consistent with moderate osteoarthritis involving the medial compartment of the left knee. This is manifested by diffuse thinning of the articular cartilage of the medial femoral condyle as well as patchy marrow edema within the left medialy extruded from the joint line. Complex tear involving both the body and the posterior horn of the left medial meniscus. The ACL has an unusual wavy or lax appearance especially over its distal third.
Avatar n tn Hi, The collection of fluid in any joint cavity is termed as joint effusion. This increase in joint fluid often leads to a distention of the joint capsule and a swelling of the joint. The general causes of joint effusion include: 1. A traumatic injury to a joint 2. Chronic degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis 3. Infectious joint disease 4. Immune mediated polyarthritis 5. Breed specific causes of polyarthritis 6. Clotting abnormalities 7.
Avatar m tn Classically morning pain and stiffness at end range of motion is noted in two conditions. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a common problem after 60 years of age. Patients present with knee pain that is aggravated by weight-bearing activities and relieved by rest. No systemic symptoms but usually awakens with morning stiffness that dissipates somewhat with activity. In addition to chronic joint stiffness and pain, episodes of acute synovitis may also be noted.
Avatar n tn I got the x-ray results which was read that I have a small joint effusion, mild osteoarthritis involving the medial component, and moderate osteoarthritis of the patellofemoral joint, and would like to know what is the treatment for me
Avatar m tn Partial thickness chondral loss at the posterior meniscal aspect with mild bone marrow edema. 2. Large joint effusion with 3x3 mm rectangular focus isointense to articular cartilage and may present a chondral body. Differential diagnosis includes focal synovial proliferation.
Avatar f tn I have been having left knee pain. I have mild osteoarthritis in this knee. Below the knee cap towards the inside I have been getting a lump that gets bigger with activity. I also get burning pain when it gets bigger. Now it is like a thick line about a inch or so long starting in he same spot and going down. What is this?
Avatar m tn Mild glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis and a small joint effusion with synovitis.
Avatar f tn I would like to put it this way, if you have soft bump then it could be due to some effusion or collection of blood. If it is a hard bump it needs further evaluation to see for any fracture of bone or any fracture fragments if persisting. I think it would be better if you consult orthopaedician and get imaging study done to rule any fracture. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar f tn the results are as follows mild changes of osteoarthritis grade 3 tear root tear of posterior horn of medical meniscus myxoid degeneration of both menisci mild synovial effusion sprain of anterior cruciate ligament large bakers cyst it all sounds really scary and i would really appreciate an opinion on this.
Avatar f tn The long head biceps tendon appears torn within its intra-articular portion and retracted below the inferior groove. 4. Moderate acromioclavicular osteoarthritis. Mild to moderate subacromial/subdeltoid bursitis. 5. Small glenohumeral effusion. There is a loose body within the axillary recess that measures 9 mm.
Avatar m tn The bones all have normal configuration. There is abnormal marrow signal and cystic change of the medial femoral condyle, lateral femoral condyle, and posterior lateral tibial plateau. There is no evidence of insufficiency fractures. There is linear abnormal signal involving the lateral most aspect of the lateral femoral condyle and extending to the distal femoral metaphysis and diaphysis which is likely sequelae of prior surgery. BURSAE AND SOFT TISSUES: No Bakers cyst.
Avatar m tn Joint swelling or swollen joints could be due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis if this has been going on for a long time. Joint which swell suddenly could be due to infection, bleeding, bursitis or effusion. The first thing would be to get your thyroid and blood sugar tested and consult an orthopedic specialist. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn There is supraspinatus tendinopathy with partial thickness intrasubstance tearing of the distal supraspinatus tendon. There is a small anterior shoulder effusion, with fluid accumulating in the subscapularis recess. No bursal fluid collection is seen. Mild osteoarthritis at the acromioclavicular joint. I also had an MRI done on my Brachial Plexus still waiting on the results. This is from a injury where I fell and caught my arm on something on the way down.
Avatar f tn My last MRI show worsening of osteoarthritis of the right hip joint with high grade chondral loss and bone on bone contact.There is an extensive degenerative tear of the right acetabular labrum, which has progressed compared to 1 year ago is is now associated with a new smal paralabral cyst. There is also a new small right hip joint effusion. On top of that i have a severe degenerative disc disease at l3 and l4.....
Avatar n tn I work alot and my knee was in pain frequently and then blew up and locked had knee effusion; bad osteoarthritis; bone on bone. Had TKR in 2008 and have fallen around 10 times since then. now as i was examining a patient, my knee hyperextended locked and went back. I'm in continual pain, and i told my surgeon and claims it was a tear in first ligament then tendon. it wasn't healing and it's hard to walk. Putting weight on leg is getting more difficult.
Avatar f tn There is a small to moderate joint effusion. No Baker's cyst. A 2-3 mm joint body is seen posterior to the posterior cruciate ligament. A 1-2 mm joint body is suggested within the medial compartment. The patella is subluxed and tilted laterally. There is focal marked thinning and irregularity of the articular cartilage over the medial patellar facet near the keel with degenerative subcortical marrow signal changes.
Avatar n tn Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. Your symptom of pain at the joint line is the result of a collateral ligament or meniscus problem (or both) until proven otherwise. When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Your other symptom of feeling of grinding and grating is characteristic of osteoarthritis. What is the quality of your pain (sharp, shooting, dull, etc.)?
Avatar n tn -thinning along the inner free edge of each meniscus without frank meniscal tear. -a small joint effusion. -2-mm baker cyst is seen within the popiteal fossa.
Avatar m tn Based on how I am understanding my test results most of my pain is from hip impingement, not necessarily osteoarthritis. I am uncomfortable sitting for long periods, and recently (last month or so) riding my bike has become occasionally painful both during and after the ride. I have been prescribed meloxicam 15mg daily. I have been taking it for about a week without much relief.
Avatar f tn Joint effusion with scattered foci of synovial proliferation. Intact distal quadriceips and patellar tendons, the morpholog of the patella tendon consisten with harvest site from prior ACL repair. Intact popliteus tendon. Scattered nonspecific subcutaneous soft tissue edema. Mild low-level iintramuscular edema within the proximal medial gastrocnemius, nonspecific.
Avatar f tn Moderate acromioclavicular joint osteoarthritis with productive changes. 2. Acromion is of Type I configuration. 3. Slightly increased risk for impingement. 4. Likely bursal sided partial thickness tearing of the supraspinatus tendon with concomitant supraspinatus tendinopathy. 5. Cyst within the supraspinatus tendon-muscle complex fiber likely post traumatic in etiology. 6. No significant supraspinatus muscle atrophy. 7.
Avatar n tn The physical therapy program goals are to minimize the effusion, normalize gait, normalize pain-free range of motion, prevent muscular atrophy, maintain proprioception, and maintain cardiovascular fitness. Choosing this course of treatment must include consideration of the age, activity level, duration of symptoms, type of meniscus tear, and associated injuries such as ligamentous pathology.
Avatar f tn The doctor sent me a letter saying I have multiple joint osteoarthritis, sjogrens syndrome, (he said there is no treatment for it), and high blood pressure (152/89.) He said he does not know why I feel ill all the time, and that he defers to the dermatologist for an explanation of my daily rashes (she never told me). He also said to get a second opinion. He enclosed a flow sheet of my blood tests, and x-ray results: My CBC, and MET were normal. My abnormal results were: ANA by EIA 2.
Avatar f tn There is a small anterior shoulder effusion, with fluid accumulating in the subscapularis recess. No bursal fluid collection is seen. Mild osteoarthritis at the acromioclavicular joint. I also had an MRI done on my Brachial Plexus still waiting on the results. This is from a injury where I fell and caught my arm on something on the way down. It felt like everthing pulled loose. I am in alot of pain with weakness in my arm and numbness and coldness of my hand and fingers. How bad is this?
