As a progressive degenerative joint disorder, OA is characterized by cartilage damage, changes in the subchondral bone, osteophyte formation.

We have investigated the temporal and the spatial relationship between bone remodelling in subchondral bone plate (Sbp) and trabecular.
The subchondral bone plate is composed of two layers that separate articular cartilage from the marrow-containing cancellous bone. The superficial layer.
Researchers are finding out that osteoarthritis is not entirely about worn cartilage. Learn how subchondral bone may also play a significant role.
Early models of OA suggest thinning of the subchondral plate in addition to trabecular bone changes. In the present study subchondral bone changes were.
As the cartilage layer thickness decreases the subchondral plate thickness and disorientation, as measured with LBP, increases. Calcified.
