A member asked:

Mri on my knee results are: chronic lateral compartment narrowing with partial extrusion of the body of meniscus with chondromalacia what does it mean?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Answers: Here's what each means: Chronic lateral compartment narrowing. This is a loss of some of the cartilage in the lateral side of the knee. Partial extrusion of the body of the meniscus. The meniscus is a tough cartilage lining the lower part of the knee joint. When it gets damaged part of it can get extruded or pushed out of the knee joint. Chondromalacia is a softening and loss of cartilage.
