MRI results any idea?
« on: February 02, 2015, 04:51:20 AM »
Hi everyone,

I have previously had a TTT (6 years ago) and an MPFL graft release and scope. with increasing pain i have again gone back and had an MRI this was the MRI comments

 A new area of high grade chondral fissuring and basal delamination with reactive marrow oedema has developed in the patella.

Any help would be appreciated.
2008 TTT and MPFL right knee (14 years old)
2011 MPFL graft fixed and Arthroscopic

When talking of chondral fissuring there is cracking or tearing of cartilage. Delamination refers to separation of cartilage. Marrow edema is simply fluid on the knee.. Your situation may not require scope as some cartilage defects can be taken of via injection to encourage cartilage growth. I am two weeks post op for full thickness chondral defect where cartilage was gone to the bone. OS did microfracture repair scope of knee. I am on crutches for six weeks and non weight during that time to let cartilage in that area regrow. Hopefully you won't need anything done so extensive. Good luck to you
