Objective: To explore the feature of type of physical constitution( TCM) in elderly female with knee osteoarthritis( KOA).Methods: Ninty- seven elderly female patients with KOA were recruited from Sichuan Orthopaedic Hospital. The types and scores of physical constitution( TCM),course of disease,Western Ontario and Mc Master Universities( WOMAC) osteoarthritis index and body mass index( BMI) were evaluated. The feature of different types of physical constitution( TCM) and the correlation between the,types and scores of physical constitution( TCM) and WOMAC osteoarthritis index and BMI were analyzed. Results: The physical constitution( TCM) of the 97 patients included mild constitution( 23) and biased constitution( 74),in which yang- deficiency constitution( 31),blood- stasis constitution( 12) and qi- deficiency constitution( 10) took a high proportion,and yin- deficiency constitution( 7),qi- depression constitution( 5),phlegm- dampness constitution( 4),special diathesis constitution( 3) and dampness- heat constitution( 2) took a small proportion. The results of Pearson correlation analysis showed that yang- deficiency constitution was negatively correlated with BMI( r =- 0. 298,P =0. 001),and qi- depression constitution was positively correlated with course of disease( r = 0. 150,P = 0. 041),and constitution scores of patients with qi- depression constitution was positively correlated with course of disease( r = 0. 714,P = 0. 042). Conclusion: The types of physical constitution( TCM) of elderly female patients with KOA present mainly with biased constitution such as yang- deficiency constitution,blood- stasis constitution and qi- deficiency constitution,so biased constitution and emotions should be regulated in the clinical treatment.
