  1. * odds ratio with 95% confidence interval, adjusted for all other covariates in model. aOR is interpreted as the odds relative to the ISO-PF group (for example, compared to those people with ISO-PF, people with COMB have 2.4 times the odds of having knee effusion; compared with ISO-PF, those with no ROA have 0.45 times the odds of difficulty descending stairs, that is, lower risk).
  2. †Mild/Moderate/Gross
