Had a new MRI the other day for my back, and there's a term in there I don't get..."fibroosseous hypertrophy". I have Googled it, and I can't find it anywhere. I'll type the whole impression here just to give context:
1. L5 grade 1 anterior spondylolisthesis with bilateral spondylolysis.
2. Fibroosseous hypertrophy at the sites of lysis.
3. L5-S1 annular disc bulge with endplate spur abutting the thecal sac and contributing with anterolisthesis and fibroosseous hypertrophy to moderate to severe neural foraminal stenosis, greater on the left, with possible impingement of the exiting L5 nerve roots within the foramina.
4. L4-L5 annular disc bulge with endplate spur greater on the right slightly indenting the thecal sac and resulting in mild left and moderate right neural foraminal stenosis.
All in all, this isn't greatly changed from my MRI 2 years ago, and that's a blessing; still, the terminology is different and I'm not familiar with fibroosseous.
PS: I haven't been on here in a while because my daughter is having some very terrible headaches and the weirdest MRV (that's a venous MRI of her brain) I have ever seen. Nothing will take your mind off your own pain like having a daughter with pain. Maybe someone will have seen something like it before...can't hurt to put a link to it here: http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y193/Ad3650/
It's the first 3 pictures
