Early Knee Osteoarthritis: Assessment of the Severity in Age-Sex Groups of Patients at Stages of Clinical Monitoring. Stage I: Characteristics of Differentiation Therapy Groups

L. O. Smolina


The results of the clinical monitoring of patients with knee osteoarthritis at the early (I-II) stages of the disease (88 female and 58 males) determined that the level of algo-functional activity and quality of life of patients depended on the age and sex. The severity of pain component dominates in females and personal and social performance restriction is predominant in males. Referential indices of algo-functional activity were determined in comparative perspective before the differentiation therapy. In such a case advanced therapy program was used in patients with more significant manifestations of algo-functional restrictions.
