Osteoarthritis. X-ray of the left hand of a patient with osteoarthritis of the wrist. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that results in the loss of cartilage between the joint. The healing process leads to the growth of bone in place of the cartilage, causing pain, stiffness and loss of mobility. This is post-traumatic osteoarthritis, that is osteoarthritis that has developed after injury.
