Abstract

INTRODUCTION
In knee osteoarthritis (OA), regional changes in proximal tibia
subchondral trabecular bone (STB) microarchitecture and
cartilage may reflect joint loading. However, reports on
STB differences between OA and non-pathological joints are
conflicting. Moreover, the effect of joint alignment on
cartilage morphology (thickness) and underlying STB remains
unexplored.
This analysis in an ongoing study aims to quantify tibia
cartilage and STB microarchitecture in end-stage knee OA
patients with varus or valgus-aligned joints, comparing them to
control (non-OA) knees.
