In the knee, primary osteoarthritis tends to particularly affect the posterior aspect of the patella and the medial compartment of the knee.

Patients with this condition thus tend to develope a varus deformity.

Secondary osteoarthritis may follow a variety of conditions such as ligament or meniscus injury, recurrent patella dislocation, osteochondritis dissecans, joint infection or other insult.
