Risk factors for incident symptomatic knee osteoarthritis: A population-based case control study in Lebanon
Health Status Disparities
Determinants of symptomatic knee OA in Lebanon may differ by geographical location, potentially reflecting differences in social conditions, biological elements and environmental factors. The geographical differences remained significant even after accounting for investigated factors. Thus, further research is needed to explore other potential determinants, such as living conditions, biomechanical and hormonal factors.
