Short and Mid-Term Outcomes of the Subchondroplasty Procedure for the Treatment of Bone Marrow in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis

      Bone marrow edema (BME) is a negative prognostic factor for patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA). BME is strongly associated with pain, decreased function, structural deterioration and rapid progression to total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Subchondroplasty (SCP) (Knee Creations, Zimmer, Warsaw, IN) directly addresses BME in the setting of KOA by injecting calcium phosphate cement into the area of BME.
