OBJECTIVE Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is an organ-level failure of the joint involving pathologic changes in articular cartilage and bone. This cross-sectional study compared apparent volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD) of proximal tibial subchondral trabecular bone in people with and without knee OA, using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT). METHODS Seventy-five individuals with mild or moderate medial compartment knee OA and 41 asymptomatic controls were recruited… CONTINUE READING
