 Steven Sampson DO
Description: The Arthritis Epidemic! OA: Not just simple “bone on bone”, Many (1.5 million) with TKR in 50s & 60s, prone to revision and complications, Limited options. Subchondral Bone & Marrow Edema: Why Is Knee OA Painful? “A Disease of Bone”- “The presence or absence of joint space narrowing... was not significantly associated with knee pain”! A Systematic Review Found that Pain Is: Strongly related to large Bone Marrow edema/lesions (seen on fluid-sensitive, fat-suppressed sequences), Moderately related to synovitis & effusion, Weakly related to cartilage volume / thickness.
