Background: Accelerated knee osteoarthritis may be a unique subset of
knee osteoarthritis, which is associated with greater knee pain and disability.
Identifying risk factors for accelerated knee osteoarthritis is vital to recognizing
people who will develop accelerated knee osteoarthritis and initiating early
interventions. The geometry ... read moreof an articular surface (e.g., coronal tibial slope),
which is a determinant of altered joint biomechanics, may be an important risk factor
for incident accelerated knee osteoarthritis. We aimed to determine if baseline
coronal tibial slope is associated with incident accelerated knee osteoarthritis or
common knee osteoarthritis.
