Grade 3 Tibial Stress Fracture

Mri Tibula Stress Fracture

The tibia is the most common site of stress-related injury in runners 6,8 . Leg pain is common in runners, and may be caused by a number of etiologies, Fig. 5. Navicular stress fracture. A Twenty-seven-year-old female tennis pro with pain and tenderness along the medial aspect of the navicular. Axial T2 SE image shows increased signal intensity within the navicular consistent with bone marrow edema, with a low-signal vertical line interrupting the dorsal cortex, consistent with a stress...

Stress Reaction Femur

Femoral Neck Stress Fracture

Stress fractures of the femur in runners may occur in the femoral neck, trochan-teric and subtrochanteric region, and femoral shaft. These injuries are often not considered in the initial presentation, and a high index of suspicion must be maintained. Patients commonly present with hip, groin, gluteal, thigh, or knee pain, depending on the location of the injury 18,72,73 . In a study by Clement and colleagues 72 , 71 patients who had 74 stress fractures of the femur were studied. Nearly 95 were...

The Postoperative Meniscus

Meniscus Tear Exercises

All rights reserved. of preserving as much meniscal tissue as possible. Persisting symptoms following meniscal surgery may be from a recurrent tear at the site of previous surgery, the presence of a new tear at a site remote from the previous intervention, or extrameniscal pathology. Accuracy of MRI in assessment of meniscal tears in nonoperated ''virgin'' menisci is well established 5-7 . The MRI criteria for diagnosing meniscal tears in such cases include regions of...

Diseases Of Hoffas Fat

Patellar Plica

A variety of disease entities can affect this structure and cause AKP, including impingement syndromes, postarthroscopy changes, plica syndromes, and mass lesions 27-30 . Acute or repetitive trauma to Hoffa's fat pad can result in edema and hemorrhage. The resultant changes of enlargement put the fat pad at risk for impingement between the femur and tibia. Fibrosis and anterior knee pain can result 27 . This is called Hoffa's disease or syndrome. Acutely, there is high T2 signal and mass effect...

Anterior Inferior Acetabular Hip Paralabral Cyst

Iliopsoas Bursa

Rectus femoris avulsion in an athlete. A Coronal inversion recovery, and B axial T2, fat-suppressed images demonstrate avulsion of the origin of the biceps femoris from the left anterior inferior iliac spine. Note prominence of avulsed tendon arrows with surrounding soft-tissue edema and hemorrhage. Fluid distending the iliopsoas bursa, resulting in symptoms, is a common clinical problem. There may be communication between hip joint and bursa, with bursal distension resulting from...
