MRI Report Looks A Mess!
« on: September 22, 2018, 02:49:14 AM »
Hello All,

My knee is a mess according to my Mri report.

Severe Osteoarthrosis, Several Subchondral Cysts in Medial Tibial Plateau, Medial Meniscus Transplant(13 yr old) has Complex Degenerative and Horizontal Tearing, and Severe Mucoid Degeneration of ACL/PCL.
I'm having a scope at the end of the month to clean the joint out as per my OS. Loose Bodies & Meniscus Tear.

My OS didn't mention anything bout ACl/PCl, guessing they are not torn from report but has anyone had Mucoid Degeneration?

What happens to the cysts? Clean them out 2? just curious.....

Thanks for any insight or info:)

You canít clean out the cysts I think, they are in the bone layer underneath the cartilage (or where the cartilage should be)

How old are you? It sounds like some sort of knee replacement isnít too far away unfortunately. Is there lateral or patellofemoral arthritis too?

Youíve done well to keep a meniscus transplant going for that long

If you search on mucoid degeneration someone posted not too long about similar. Think itís quite rare but presumably linked to the arthritis?

Good luck  :)

Thanks for the Response!

Knee Replacement isn't something I would even want to consider right now although I know it's my future. I'm 45. I'm pretty active, so that scares me lol.  I've also had ACI cartilage transplants too on this knee, so curious to see how that looks also. Report says High Grade cartilage loss in medial facet and femoral trochlea. My OS says that once you have cartilage surgeries sometimes radiologists don't know how to read the Mri correctly or are confused, so I'm hoping it's not as bad. Lateral side looks good I think.

Yeah I'm impressed to that my meniscus lasted 13 tears, it's been bothering me for prob 2 years, but had to have 2 shoulder surgeries so I put it off.


I'll search Mucoid....

Thanks Again:)
