MRI results
I had an MRI and this is what it says..
ganglion cysts arising from the volar aspect of radioscaphoid and ulno triquetral joint space interval.
subcortical edema within the ulnar base of the lunate carpal bone associated with neutral to slightly positive ulnar variance. these findings are typically seen with ulna lunate abutment.
my question is could this be from repetetive motion? what causes this and what do they do to fix this?
I have been refered to an ortho doc i will see in a few weeks. any answers you can give me would be greatly appreciated
thankyou

hello dear troubledog1,
i will try to explain

"small ganglion cysts arising from the volar aspect of the radioscaphoid and ulno triquetral joint space interval " =
                                               On the palmar side of your wrist , there is a small fluid filled cavity. Scaphoid and Triquetrum are the small bones of hand which make the wrist joint with radius and ulna along with other hand bones. So this fluid filled cavity is arising from , nearby your wrist joint.

"subcortical edema within the ulnar base of the lunate carpal bone" =
                                                                                                   One of your hand small bones by the name of LUNATE has minimal inflamation , maybe due to the fluid cavity +/- ulnar abutment

"neutral to slightly positive ulnar variance " =
                                                                The height of your bone (ulna) is slightly more than the radius.

"ulna lunate abutment" -  Due to little higher length of ulna, its pressing over your Lunate bone.


I hope i have simplified it...................

So when are you going to meet your ortho doctor?

If you got more querries, let us know,
thanks

hi cathi,.
TFCC is a cartilagenous part.
It's best fixed by wrist arthposcopic specialist.
So i would like you to see this doctor.
We need to repair ot with suture materials. I is a fine art surgery so proper expertise is required.
