Osteoarthritis in MRI Knee Joint in Hail Region

Abdullah Alshammri | Ibrahim Alshikh [9] | Hassan A Elazeem Gad [5]


Abstract: Increasingduty in knee joint has been reported in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) as a strategy to improve knee joint stability. However, presence of self-reported knee instability in a large group of patients with knee OA may be a sign of highduty in knee joint. The objective of this work was Role of MRI to evaluate Knee joint osteoarthritis and knee instability in Hail regionwith and without self-reported instability and examine the relationship between duty knee joint osteoarthritis with, knee joint laxity, and knee malalignment. The data at a self-selected was collected for 15Patient with knee OA without self-reported instability (stable group) and 5patients with knee OA and episodic self-reported instability (unstable group). Knee joint duty was examinedby MRI as the change in the normal knee joint signals divided by the change in the knee Abnormality. The unstable group duties with lower knee joint stiffness, mainly due to smaller heel-contact knee abnormality) and greater knee compared to their knee stability. No significantrelationships were observed between knee joint osteoarthritis and knee instability, knee joint laxity or Varus knee malalignment. Reduced duty in knee joint appears to be associated with knee instability and independent of quadriceps muscle weakness, knee joint laxity or Varus malalignment. Further investigations of relationship between self-reported knee joint instability and walking knee joint stiffness are warranted.
