You have not asked a question but those results are consistent with significant osteoarthritis.

Dr. Amy Levine answered:

Per L knee MRI report, what is Grade 4 medial compartment chondromalacia with high-grade, full thickness condral loss? Mild patellar tendinosis?

Cartilage loss

Extremity-joint-knee
We all lose cartilage to some degree as we age, which is the cause of arthritis. There is a spectrum from mild thinning, to complete absence. Full thickness chondral loss refers to an area where there is no cartilage. Mild patellar tendonosis refers to a mild inflammation in the patellar tendon, the tendon which connects your patella (knee cap) to your tibia (shin).

MRI Report: 1. Complex tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus; 2. grade II/III medial compartment chondromalacia; 3. grade II patellofemoral compartment chondromalacia; 4. small joint effus?

Yes...

Your MRI report notes you have a torn inside cartilage(medial meniscus) associated w/ moderate arthritis on the inside( medial) compartment of the knee.You also have moderate chondromalacia of the patellofemoral (kneecap) joint and some joint fluid( effusion).See a board certified ORS for possible arthroscopy.Your prognosis worsens w/ > arthritic change in your knee. Good Luck!

Unfortunately you may still have pain even after a meniscus debridement. Steroid injections, euflexxa or synvisc injections and potentially a knee replacement may also be future treatments.

Treatment for grade 4 chondromalacia medial patellar facet with Patella alta with PT / PL ratio of 1.6?

Varies

Patella
It varies in part on your age, the condition of the other compartments of your knee, and the overall alignment of the limb. Grade IV chondromalacia infers severe loss in the normal cartilage under that part of your knee cap. Thank you for your question.

Is 6 mm grade II chondromalacia along mid medial patellar facet synonymous with arthritis? How common and how serious is this? (Very athletic female).

No.

Years later it might progress to it, but not now, at this stage. Keep being active as it strengthens the muscles and with time, your symptoms may to some or a great extent decrease. Good Luck.

MRI says partial tear of anterior,posterior cruciate ligament,grade3 chondromalacia,subchondral cysts in medial tibial condyle, is operatn right thng?

See good knee...

Mri
This is purely an MRI reading of your knee.'partial' ACL and PCL tears in your age group means very little to me unless you had a very significant , recent knee injury w/ a hemarthrosis .( which u don't have).'Chondromalacia'( of what..MFC, LFC, patella?) means you have a component of arthritis in your knee. See a qualified, respected knee surgeon to discuss your options . Best of Luck!!
