It is the most common from of chronic disorder of synovial joints. It is characterized by progressive degenerative changes in the articular cartilage over the years, particularly in weight bearing joints. It is strongly associated with ageing and is a major cause of pain and disability in older people. Inflammation can occur but is not a prominent feature. Joint involvement in OA follows a characteristic distribution, mainly targeting the hips, knees, PIP and DIP joints of hands, neck and lumbar spine. Although some of the patients are asymptomatic, the lifetime risk of having a total hip or knee replacement for OA in someone aged 50 years is about 11% in women and 8% in men. Symptoms attributable to OA are more prevalent in women, except at the hip, where men are equally affected.
