Table 1 Percentage of ankle joints at each cartilage grade when the knee joint displayed grade 4 degeneration (the most severe degeneration)

From: Relationship between knee and ankle degeneration in a population of organ donors

Ankle Grade 0 1 2 3 4
When knee cartilage grade = 4 (N = 54)
% of ipsilateral ankles 25.6 27.9 25.6 16.3 4.6
% of contralateral ankles 29.6 27.9 22.2 16.6 3.7
When ankle cartilage grade = 4 (N = 3)
Knee Grade 0 1 2 3 4
% of ipsilateral knees 0 0 0 0 100
% of contralateral knees 0 0 0 33.3 66.7
