Is this Plica?
« on: October 05, 2004, 04:30:57 PM »
Had a twisting injury 4 years ago with pain but little swelling. Been to 3 different OS's, including the Petersen clinic here in Gothenburg. PT gave limited improvement. Arthroscopy with scraping of patella at local public hospital for injury to back of patella in May with no improvement. Have noticed that the pain doesn't come when I am walking or riding or even jogging - it usually comes later. Today I can hardly walk after a 15 minute stroll last night. Read about plica and thinking perhaps this is the problem - or at least part of it. Is it common for surgeons to miss this in the first arthroscopy?
