can plicas cause bone marrow oedema to appear on MRIs?
« on: July 05, 2019, 12:43:18 PM »
My mri shows bone marrow edema inferiorally in the medial femoral condyle &  lower pole of patella, that looks like the same region as a medial plica could it be the plica that's causing the edema to be here? The plica is fibrotic.  If so would removing the plica also make the bone marrow edema go away?

I've read here "Bone marrow oedema is not directly related to plicasyndrome; however, it can be observed in cases of internalderangement or impingement. "Https://www.researchgate.net/publication/269187351_Synovial_plicae_of_the_knee_joint_The_role_of_advanced_MRI

does that mean if a plica is impinged, it can be one of the causes that bone marrow edema appears in an mri?
