From: Infrapatellar fat pad in the knee: is local fat good or bad for knee osteoarthritis?

  Univariable Multivariable*
  Odds ratio (95% CI) Odds ratio (95% CI)
Radiographic osteoarthritis 0.88 (0.79,0.99) 0.75(0.62, 0.91)
MTF joint space narrowing 0.87 (0.77,0.97) 0.75 (0.62, 0.91)
LTF joint space narrowing 0.99 (0.88,1.14) 0.77 (0.62, 0.96)
