High grade ACL partial torn
2years ago My friend fall down while playing and twisted his leg. Knee swelled up. Once he gone through MRI of knee, the report came as blown out appearance with diffuse PDFS hyperintensity of midsubnstance of anterior cruciate ligament with discontinuty of fibres -s/o High grade partial tear. Mild joint effusion noted. This is the report of MRI which was done 2.5 years ago and now he do not have any pain or other symptoms only little instability of knee. Could you please let me know should he undergo ACL reconstruction surgery and how long can he wait as already 2.5 years completed. Thanks in advance.

Yes. Surgery can be done even now, but the longer the knee remains unstable following injury, the more are the chances of developing cartilage defects in the joint. A new MRI scan will be required to assess the degree of cartilage damage at this point of time to plan the surgery better.
Next Steps
Get a consultation and plan your surgery as soon as possible. Best of luck.
