MRI findings, whats your concern? if any

Findings consistent with moderate osteoarthritis involving the medial compartment of the left knee.  This is manifested by diffuse thinning of the articular cartilage of the medial femoral condyle as well as patchy marrow edema within the left medialy extruded from the joint line.   Complex tear involving both the body and the posterior horn of the left medial meniscus.  The ACL has an unusual wavy or lax appearance especially over its distal third. this may be secondary to previous strain injury. No significant joint effusion.

Hi there!

The report describes a tear in the medial meniscus with a possible minor injury to the ACL and degenerative osteoarthritic changes. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
