Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic, multifactorial disease affecting the joint and the surrounding tissues, primarily leading to progressive damage to articular cartilage and, subsequently, to the subchondral bone and surrounding synovial structures.

The overall worldwide prevalence of hip and knee OA is around 300 million. A report from the Global Burden of Disease in 2010 explored the burden of hip and knee OA, comparing both conditions with other diseases, and found that hip and knee OA represents one of the leading causes of global disability.

Given the multifactorial nature of OA, a proper evaluation of both non-modifiable (age, sex, genetics, etc.) and modifiable factors (smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, physical activity, etc.) is fundamental to establish a tailored treatment protocol.

In recent years, significant research advances have been made regarding more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment options for OA, particularly addressing the factors that contribute to its different phenotypes.

In this Special Issue, we are pleased to invite researchers with expertise in the field to submit high-quality articles or reviews related to new approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of OA.
