Wikipedia

  1. Osteophyte

    Osteophytes are exostoses (bony projections) that form along joint margins. They should not be confused with enthesophytes, which are bony projections that form at the attachment of a tendon or ligament. Osteophytes are not always distinguished from exostoses in any definite way, although in many cases there are a number of differences. Osteophytes are typically intra-articular (within the joint capsule).

  1. osteophyte

    An osteophyte is a bony projection that forms along the edges of bones, commonly in joints. They are usually caused by joint damage associated with osteoarthritis. These outgrowths can vary in size and are also known as bone spurs. They may not cause any symptoms, but can cause pain and loss of movement if they press against nerves or restrict joint movement.
