Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent disease in the elderly, causing pain and contributing to poor quality of life. Surgical intervention, such as knee arthroplasty, can be used in those with end‐stage knee OA. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is one of the most common surgical procedures for end‐stage knee OA, with promising clinical outcomes. However, a large proportion of patients with...
To reveal the anatomical adaptation of the fibula and its relations to age and settlement of the medial tibial plateau, and to explore the mechanism of proximal partial fibulectomy in treating medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (OA).
A retrospective study was performed in the Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University. Weight‐bearing full‐leg anteroposterior (AP) radiographs...
To evaluate the dynamic changes of key morphology indicators of the lower extremities in the coronal plane with progressing medial compartment knee osteoarthritis (KOA) with an emphasis on gender‐dependent regional differences.
The radiographs of patients with non‐traumatic knee pain and varying degrees of genu varus were reviewed. Radiographs were studied in 1538 lower limbs...
To analyze the correlation between the Kellgren–Lawrence (K‐L) score of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) patients with different degrees and their urine concentration of C‐terminal telopeptide of collagen type II (CTX‐II) and interleukin‐1β (IL‐1β), and to further evaluate the diagnostic value of CTX‐II and IL‐1β during the pathological process by producing an experimental osteoarthritis (OA)...
