Possibly: Suggest you talk these details over specifically with your surgeon doing the procedure. You have a right to a full, open, frank discussion without hurry.

Sounds like: You are reading the results of an MRI report generated by a radiologist. Whether all of those things are clinically significant or not is unknowable. I would suggest that there would be no effect whatsoever on trigger thumb treatment, surgical or not.
