Right Knee- minimal joint effusion. Medial collateral ligament sprain (Grade 2) and lateral collateral ligament sprain (grade 1). Consider myxoid degenerative changes and/or partial tear, proximal infrapatellar tendon. Moderate osteophyte formation.

Left knee- moderate joint and suprapatellar recess effusion. Medial and lateral ligament sprain (grade 2-3), more medically. Consider medial and lateral menscus myxoid changes. Moderate osteophyte formation. what does this mean?
