Summary Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide and its prevalence is increasing. Locally, over 2.1 million Australians are affected and this figure is increasing secondary to our obesity epidemic.
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide and its prevalence is increasing. Locally,over 2.1 millionAustralians are affectedand this figureis increasing secondary to our obesity epidemic. Previous studiesindicate that there is discordance between radiographic severityand the clinicalsymptoms of knee OA patients. Our aim is to evaluate the correlation between the knee effusion size and the clinical presentation of knee OA patients. Utilisingthe patients enrolled from a dedicated hip and knee OA clinic, we will evaluate their baseline clinical parameters and the size of their knee effusions.We hope this would add to our understanding in managing knee OA patients.
