• facet joints
  • However, Cox Technic protocols that incorporate the use of positive galvanic current into the cyst to drive out inflammation and sedate nerves along with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression of the facet joints to open the canal space, drop intradiscal pressures and increase disc height offers relief non-invasively.

  • cystic
  • A meniscal cyst is a well-defined cystic lesion located along the peripheral margin of the meniscus, a part of the knee, nearly always associated with horizontal meniscal tears. (wikipedia.org)
  • examination
  • Histological examination confirmed a synovial cyst. (nii.ac.jp)
  • Histologic examination reveals the Tarlov-cyst outer wall is composed of vascular connective tissue, and the inner wall is lined with flattened arachnoid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • tendons
  • Extensor tendons pass through the extensor retinaculum at wrist joint in 6 synovial sheaths, also referred to compartments. (wikipedia.org)
  • De Quervain's syndrome is a medical condition when the synovial sheath surrounding tendons in the first extensor tendon compartment becomes inflamed, so called tenosynovitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tendons of the abductor pollicis longus and the extensor pollicis brevis run narrower due to the thickening of the synovial sheath, which causes pain when extending and moving the thumb outward. (wikipedia.org)
  • case
  • 1 This case illustrates that facet joint cysts can be safely and effectively ruptured percutaneously under fluoroscopic guidance. (lww.com)
  • neurological
  • Because of this, serious problems such as neurological deficits or cauda equina syndrome (loss of bowel and bladder control) are extremely uncommon even for very large cysts. (spine-health.com)
  • Tarlov cysts are relatively common when compared to other neurological cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • meniscus
  • In their most subtle form, meniscal cysts present as focal areas of high signal intensity within a swollen meniscus. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is not uncommon for radiologists to miss this type of meniscal cyst because the signal intensity is not quite as great as fluid on T2 weighted sequences.2 When this fluid is extruded into the adjacent soft tissues, the swollen meniscus subsequently assumes a more normal shape, and the extruded fluid demonstrates a higher T2 signal typical of parameniscal cysts.

  • Medial meniscus horizontal tear extending into a meniscal cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • Large medial meniscus cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesions
  • Arthrography and venography using imaging dyes allow for the detection of popliteal cysts and the exclusion of thrombotic lesions but are invasive procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • It is important not to forget synovial cysts as a cause of peripherally enhancing masses in the extrathecal space, anywhere along the spinal canal, but particularly in the lower lumbar and midcervical regions. (radiopaedia.org)
  • Cysts encroach the neuroforamen and cause spinal nerve irritation and radiculopathy. (lww.com)
  • The cause of facet cysts is not well known. (wikipedia.org)
  • This implies that the presence of this muscle is usually asymptomatic, although the extensor digitorum brevis manus might cause a painful swelling which can potentially be misdiagnosed as other pathology such as synovial cyst and lipoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cysts are often multiple, extending around the circumference of the nerve, and can enlarge over time to compress neighboring nerve roots, to cause bone erosion. (wikipedia.org)
  • peripherally
  • The most widely accepted theory describes meniscal cysts resulting from extrusion of synovial fluid through a peripherally extended horizontal meniscal tear, accumulating outside the joint capsule. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Synovial osteochondromatosis (SOC) (synonyms include synovial chondromatosis, primary synovial chondromatosis, synovial chondrometaplasia) is a rare disease that creates a benign change or proliferation in the synovium or joint-lining tissue, which changes to form bone-forming cartilage. (wikipedia.org)
  • Also, they can deposit in the synovial lining, reestablish a blood supply, and become replaced by bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cysts that were compressing one or more nerves and causing bone erosions have been reported to occur near the shoulder joint. (wikipedia.org)
