Can someone please explain to me my MRI result I have called both my Doctor and my nurse at my local VA clinic 2 weeks no call and I just want to understand my results Va does not have appointment for over 1 month and I have already been waiting 2 weeks.
MRI results state:
1: Partial tear of the anterior distal fibers of the ACL graft involving less than 50% of the graft with the torn fibers of the ACL graft with the torn fibers displaced anteriorly. Posterior fibers of the ACL graft remains intact. Small osteophyte extending from the medial intercondylar notch indents the ACL graft.
2. marrow edema in the styloid process of the fibular head suggesting posterolateral corner injury through the arcuate ligament complex is not well seen.
3. Tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus superimposed on changes from remote debridement. Although no fluid signal is seen within the tear, presence of minimal subchondral marrow edema in the subjacent tibial plateau suggests that the tear may be acute. Comparison to prior knee MRI would be helpful.
4. Intrasubstance degeneration the lateral meniscus with a chronic appearing tear of the posterior horn.
5. Thickened medial plica with chondral fraying of the medial patellar facet.
