Degenerative Joint Diseases

Chapter

Abstract

Osteoarthritis

Degenerative joint diseases include osteoarthritis, osteoarthrosis, osteochondrosis and others, and are the most common joint disorders that gradually disable patients. These recently receive greater attention because of the unprecedented prolongation of life expectancy and the availability of efficient prosthetic therapy. The terms describing “degenerative joint diseases” are many and used more or less loosely and even interchangeably. Osteoarthritis and osteoarthosis designate degraded states of a synovial joint with and without significant inflammation, respectively. Osteoarthritis is classified into primary or idiopathic and secondary, and inflammatory when there is significant synovial involvement with effusion.
