Clinical Terms

The following are some of the clinical term definitions related or applicable to osteoarthritis within the ICD-10 index for Diseases and Injuries.

Ankle: The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.

Elbow: Region of the body immediately surrounding and including the ELBOW JOINT.

Foot Joints: The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Hip: The projecting part on each side of the body, formed by the side of the pelvis and the top portion of the femur.

Knee: A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.

Osteoarthritis: A progressive, degenerative joint disease, the most common form of arthritis, especially in older persons. The disease is thought to result not from the aging process but from biochemical changes and biomechanical stresses affecting articular cartilage. In the foreign literature it is often called osteoarthrosis deformans.

Shoulder: Part of the body in humans and primates where the arms connect to the trunk. The shoulder has five joints; ACROMIOCLAVICULAR joint, CORACOCLAVICULAR joint, GLENOHUMERAL joint, scapulathoracic joint, and STERNOCLAVICULAR joint.

Spine: The spinal or vertebral column.

Wrist: The region of the upper limb between the metacarpus and the FOREARM.
