Quality of life impairments after hip arthroscopy in people with hip chondropathy
. J Hip Preserv Surg.
Exclusion criteria for the HCG were as follows: (i) having a clinically documented diagnosis of PFPS, bursitis around hip or knee or tendinitis; (ii) having an history of undergone knee surgery past three months, traumatic hip or knee injury; (iii) having documented meniscus lesions, plica syndrome, knee instability, chondropathy
, patellar subluxation or dislocation; and (iv) having an history of patellar tendon injury, distraction apophysitis around the knee.
PPRC can be defined as non-inflammatory chondropathy
affecting mainly articular cartilage.
Recurrent laryngeal neuropathy, chondropathy
, and dysplasia often have structural differences that are endoscopically apparent as well as palpable abnormalities and ultrasonographic differences.
An arthroscopy done at the beginning of the surgery confirmed a grade II chondropathy
of the medial femorotibial compartment based on Outerbridge classification with intact lateral femorotibial or femoropatellar compartments.
Analysis of joint histology at the end of the study revealed that MNX surgery resulted in a significant chondropathy
score (Figure 4(a)), inflammation score of the synovium (Figure 4(b)), and an increase in the number of osteophytes (Figure 4(c)).

An MRI of the knee showed a grade II patellar chondropathy
, a grade IV chondropathy
of the femoral trochlea, and a complex lesion of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus and diffuse reactive synovitis.

Given the findings from this study including 194 patients and 6-year follow-up, it has been observed that in cases with total meniscectomy and partial lateral meniscectomy, the chondropathy
occurs in the first 5 years, 33.4% of the partial medial meniscectomy cases the symptoms of chondropathy
occur in the 6th year.
Quantitative MR imaging evaluation of chondropathy
in osteoathritic knees.
c) hamatolunate impaction syndrome: a type 2 lunate (anatomical variant lunate defined by a clear articular facet with the hamate), chondropathy
and associated subchondral marrow signal alteration (Figure 5); and,
