What are the symptoms of Hip Osteonecrosis?

Most common symptoms of osteonecrosis are:

  • Sudden pain

What are the risk factors of Hip Osteonecrosis?

Risk factors associated with osteonecrosis involve: 

  • Trauma: People with a history of trauma are more likely to develop this disorder
  • Excessive alcohol use: Excessive alcohol intake can lead to fatty deposits in the blood vessels which disrupt the blood flow in the femoral heads leading it to collapse. 
  • Bisphosphonate use: High doses of bisphosphonate are associated with osteonecrosis. 
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus: Osteonecrosis may complicate the course of systemic lupus erythematosus. 

What are the Complications of Hip Osteonecrosis?

Osteonecrosis must be treated very soon, as negligence in treating the disease can lead the bone to collapse permanently.
