  1. The dependent variable was medial meniscal extrusion. aAdjusted by factors listed in the table. bAdjusted for height and factors listed except for body mass index (BMI). cAdjusted for factors listed except for BMI and weight. *Statistically significant associations. CI, confidence interval; OA, osteoarthritis; OR, odds ratio.
