marginal arthrosis/arthrotic deformations

arthrosis is used more commonly, although I have also found the adjectival form. Arthrosis is an articulation or joint, or it can also mean the degenerative process in a joint.
Gould-Chiampo (for arthrosis)

You can also find a number of sites (Yahoo, Google, whatever you prefer) with the combination of arthrosis + deformation.

agree  Adalbert Kowal: marginal arthrotic deformations is better. The arthrosis in this case begins to develop, the deformations are still marginal but already discernible.
