Abstract

Purpose: Heterogeneity within the population of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) patients impedes progress in our understanding of the disease and development of effective interventions. It has been suggested that distinct phenotypes, or patient subgroups characterised by distinctive features, are present within the wider KOA population. The purpose of this systematic review was to identify current evidence for the existence of distinct clinical phenotypes in KOA.
