Degenerative joint disease is a frequent complication of disorders or injuries which disrupt the normal congruency of articular joints. Such conditions include displaced intra-articular fractures and full thickness osteochondral defects, which involve local surface incongruities for which the associated aberrations of contact stress are not well understood. In the last few years several experimental and computational models, here reviewed, have been developed to study stress abnormalities near local incongruities.
