Re: mri left knee

Well, blondie, there's a lot of info you've put out there. First of all, I don't understand why your doctor didn't explain all this to you! When I have had my many knee MRI's done, my doc sits down with me and shows me the images on his computer screen and tells me in detail what it all means. I have had 5 knee surgeries since 2004. 4 of them were to repair or remove torn meniscus and to try to repair my Chondromalacia. So I do understand some of the stuff you mentioned.

Chondromalacia is basically an irritation under the surface of the patella (knee cap). It is covered with a layer of cartiledge that is supposed to be smooth, which allows the knee to glide over it when you bend it. But if there is an injury or something that irritates it or causes it to rub against the knee joint, that cartiledge gets roughed up and frayed looking. Every time I have had a knee scope, they have smooth the frayed cartiledge and try to repair what they can.

Re: mri left knee

It also looks like you have a benign cyst. Enchondroma is a benign cyst of the cartiledge. I have a Baker's cyst in the back of my knee caused by all the swelling I always have. It's also benign and they've never removed it during my surgeries. My doc says it isn't a problem.

You don't appear to have any damage to your meniscus. I guess the only thing I see that I might question is if you have a fractured patella? That is my take on it anyway.
I hope you ask your doc! Good luck.

Re: mri left knee

Hello, Blondie32.

You also have a bone bruise at the top of your tibia (the large bone in your lower leg) and a hairline fracture at the top of your fibula (the small bone of your lower leg). All the tissue around your knee is swollen and sore.

The radiologist noted findings that would suggest remote passing patellar dislocations. Does your kneecap become dislocated often?
