Abstract

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.
