Common Questions and Answers about Posterior knee pain meniscus tear


Avatar f tn There is a horizontal free-edge tear of the posterior horn and posterior body of the lateral meniscus. The tear likely extends to involve portions of the anterior horn as well. No medial meniscus tear identified There is increased linear signal in the ACL which represents an intrasubstance ganglion. PCL appears intact. High grade partial thickness cartilage loss is present along the latreral femoral condyle and lateral tibial plateau.
Avatar f tn I've been skiing ever since. MRI findings..... Tear of the undersurface of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. Significant artifact from magnetic susceptibility apparently due to residual metal filings in the lateral aspect of anterior tibia. Artifact partially obscures some significant cystic change in the anterolateral edge of the lateral tibial plateau. The cystic changes were not well displayed on plain film. Ligaments are intact. No popliteal cyst or chondromalacia.
Avatar m tn what is the treatment for a tear in the posterior end of the medial meniscus extending to the inferior meniscual surface
Avatar f tn I have had long time knee issues and have had 3 surgeries involving medial meniscus tear, cartilage damage and bone chips. 1994 was my last one. Osteoarthritis was diagnosed in 1994 (I'm 47 and vey active) New MRI results: 1.posterior defect in root of medial meniscus 2. interstitial tear in ACL 3. bone marrow abnormality at medial femoral condyle 4. mild cartilage deficit lateral femoral condyle All my pain is posterior lateral with limited flexion. What the heck is going on?
Avatar m tn grade 3 tear involving posterior horn of medial meniscus. 2. interstitial injury involving ACL 3. bone marrow oedema involving medial tibial condyle 4. mild joint effusion how serious is my injury? what should I do. please guide me.
Avatar m tn sudsha One of the most common knee problems an Orthopedist sees in the office is a degenerative meniscus tear. A meniscus is a cushion inside your knee. It aids in stability of the knee and minimizing the stress across the knee, thus minimizing the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Meniscus tears are incredibly common. Although meniscus tears occur in all age groups, they are most common in adults over 50. There are many different types of meniscus tears.

Avatar f tn Am age 65. Diagnosed with tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus extending into inferior articular surface, plus some arthritis. Ice, heat, NSAIDs, hydrocodone don't help. Cortisone shot helped a little. Pain puts me in wheelchair if I walk much, and walking was my life until 12/08. Had recurrent C. difficile colitis for 8 months in 2005 - 06, so am at risk of another recurrence if I need antibiotics. Are there other treatments besides surgery?

Avatar m tn There is oblique tear of posterior horn of medical meniscus, also There is a detached fragment of medical meniscus and we are dealing with a bucket-handle type tear of the medical meniscus. There is complete tear of the ACL and PCL is intact". I am not a medical person and don't understand this terms doctor told me to do surgery. can you explain me in simple term and after surgery it will be normal? Thanks.
Avatar f tn my MRI report says that 1) fluid seen around knee joint. 2) linear intensity seen in posterior horn of medial meniscus- S/o grade-I tear. the doctor has recommended some exercises for this plz tell me how much time will it take to heal completely and what are the precautions i need to take. Are there any nutritional supplements i can take to accelerate healing.
Avatar n tn this summer again, I started having the same pattern of pain even after 1 mile of fast walking. I was able to see a knee specialist, and after an MRI, they found the following: Full Thickness vertical tear of the red-white junction of the posterior Horn of Medial meniscus. There is no free fragment, bucket handle or secondary osteoarthridis.
Avatar n tn Searching for posterior horn medial meniscus, I found this link in about 10 seconds. w.howardluksmd.
Avatar m tn Knee brace or no brace???? I had a large horizontal medial meniscus tear that went from the posterior horn to the body. They did a partial meniscectomy and said I had a little arthritis as well. I just had this done a week ago. Seem to be doing ok for the most part or I guess as expected for being 41 years old. I don't play sports other than backyard activities with my sons. I do however drag race and its a stick car. Naturally its my clutch leg that was operated on.

Avatar f tn • Partial ACL tear at its proximal attachment. • Gr.II tear in the posterior horn of medical meniscus. • Bone contusions in the proximal tibia. Doctor has advsied that after 1 week will examine my knee and exercise. Depends on how my knee respond and I feel further action can be taken. 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.
Avatar f tn Grade 3 oblique tear posterior horn lateral meniscus. I am worried what does this mean. My doctor says the other knee is going to do the same thing. Is this serious, will I need surgery. Do I need to stay off my legs.
Avatar f tn There is a complex tear in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus with both horizontal and vertical components with extension to the inferior articular surface in the peripheral third of the meniscus. Impression: 1. Intramedullary mass in the distal femur with a nonspecific appearance but most likely an enchondroma. 2. Complex tear through the posterior horn of medial meniscus. 3. Joint effusion. and 4. Baker's - type cyst.
Avatar m tn MR findings are suggestive of grade 2 tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus with marrow edema in medial femoral condyle with joint effusion "
Avatar n tn Do you have any hip or ankle pain (both hip and ankle pain can refer pain to the knee, and vice versa)? Keep me informed. Bye.
Avatar n tn Mild Intrameniscal signal in the lateral meniscus without definite tear. There is intrameniscaul signal in the medial meniscus posterior horn extending to the inferior surface only on a single image. This probably represents intrameniscal injury which does not definitely extend to the articular surface. 3. Shallow trochlear groove with lateral tilt of the patella which is a development variant.
Avatar n tn A focus of chondral edema in the articular cartilage overlying the medial facet of the patella in keeping with early chonromalacia patella. Undisplaced complex tear int he medial meniscus at the junction between the body any posterior horn of the medial meniscus." Could someone please explain in layman's terms the above observation. My doc has requested an appointment with an othro - don't know how soon that will happen.
Avatar m tn Hi! In case of meniscal tears, initially a conservative approach to treatment is initiated. This involves rest, application of ice and elevation of the injured limb. With time inflammation subsides and the pain lessens. Then if the knee is actively used, or through physiotherapy, the muscles around the knee joint strengthen and lend support given by the meniscus. Generally this approach to treatment takes care of the symptoms. Surgery is only thought of if these conservative methods fail.
Avatar m tn leaping steps, pivoting, kneeling that would cause stress to the ligaments and muscles and the meniscus of the knee. I have had surgery to repair my meniscus tear and it still isn't right! I will have to have another surgery in the future. Glad you are not is so much pain, but be conscienscous of it and treat your knee like a fragile egg until it gets stronger. Some leg extension exercises with low weight would help strengthen it and give it the support it needs to heal. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I have a small intrasubstance tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus do I need surgery? thats one thing on the MRI report it also says Large bone bruised/contusion of the lateral condyle. Partial tear of the distal attachment of the lateral collateral ligment. Small suprapatellar bursa and joint effusion.
