Abstract

In knee osteoarthritis (OA), subregional changes in proximal tibia subchondral trabecular bone (STB) microarchitecture and cartilage may reflect joint loading [1, 2]. 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 [1]. This early analysis in an ongoing study aims to quantify tibia cartilage and STB microarchitecture of end-stage knee OA patients with varus or valgus-aligned joints, comparing them to control (non-OA) knees.
