Knee Osteoarthritis

Knee Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis of the knee is due to degenerate changes that have occured in the hyaline cartilage on the surface of the bones. When one compartment is affected the cause is usually mechanical in nature. It begins with a traumatic or non-traumatic degenerate tear of the meniscus (left). It is usually the medial meniscus. The unstable portion causes high pressure degenerate change of the surface which in most cases progress to frank osteoarthritis within 2-10 years. The radiological diagnosis of osteoarthritis is loss of joint space, subchondral sclerosis, subchondral cysts and marginal osteophyte formation. The rate of this progression depends on a number of biomechanical factors. Depending on these factors, once the unstable meniscal tear and the unstable chondral damage has been treated you might recommend an OA Lite for the patient with advanced arthritis not yet ready for joint replacement.
