Lower limb alignment, tibiofemoral (TF) subluxation, and bone density changes around the knee are significant factors related to the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) and have great impact on its severity. The relation of each factor to knee OA was evaluated separately in previous studies; however, few studies have attempted to integrate their respective effects. The purpose of this study was to determine if an identifiable interaction exists between coronal limb alignment, TF subluxation… CONTINUE READING
