Hello again,

I will explain the findings or rather what the findings of your MRI mean for you,

1. Motion degraded examination demonstrates a mild osteoarthritic change of the right hip with degeneration of the superior labrum and probable nondisplaced tear the chondro-labral junction of the anterior labrum.

This finding basically means that you have developed MILD arthritis of the hip joint. The labrum of the hip joint is a small ring of cartilage which surrounds the socket of the hip joint itself. When arthritis develops the labrum may degenerate over time leading to problems like pain and stiffness. In your case, there is mild degeneration of the labrum ALONG WITH a small tear in the front of the labrum. Usually, small tears like these don't need to be repaired immediately, they can be monitored and managed with medications, if they don't improve then surgery may be needed.

2. Intermediate to high-grade insertional tear of the gluteus minimus tendon on the right.

This indicates that one of the tendons of the muscles of the buttocks is torn. This tear seems to be moderate to severe in nature. Now usually moderate tears like these would need injections of steroids or even PRP (platelet-rich plasma) over a period of few weeks which should help them heal however if they don't, then again surgery would be required.

3. Focal signal abnormality involving the adductor plate on the right suggesting tear. The seen in the setting of sports hernia/athletic pubalgia.

There is another tear in the region of the thigh or rather groin. As the report points out this sort of injury is commonly seen in patients who are athletic or are involved in sports more often than not. However, it can also develop in patients who don't participate in sports because of any other form of trauma.

4. Mild/moderate greater trochanteric bursitis bilaterally.

This finding indicates that the bursae (fluid-filled sacs in the joints which help in the movement of the bones on top of each other) are inflamed in both hip joints. Again usually this does not need surgery as steroid injections would help reduce the inflammation in this situation along with anti-inflammatory medications like meloxicam or ibuprofen.

5. Mild osteitis pubis

This is a finding which indicates that the main joint of the pelvic bone, symphysis pubis, is inflamed. The pelvic bone is made of right and left side which is joined in the middle at a joint known as symphysis pubis. It can be inflamed after trauma or injury and usually would subside with conservative management (medications).

What about the fissure in the superior acetabulum? I don’t see a comment about that, did I overlook it?
Orthopedist: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 1 month ago
The fissure is part of the osteoarthritic changes in the hip joint. These sort of fissures can develop when osteoarthritic changes occur in the hip joint.
So basically when I explained the osteoarthritic changes in the hip joint the fissure was a part of those changes.
