Bone Tissue Death: Prevention and Treatment
Avascular necrosis, also known as osteonecrosis, is the death of bone tissue as a result of a lack of blood flow, and it can result in minute fractures and eventual collapse of the bone.
Blood flow to a portion of bone can be stopped by a shattered bone or dislocated joint.
Additionally, excessive alcohol consumption and long-term usage of high-dose steroid medicines are linked to avascular necrosis. People between the ages of 30 and 50 are most frequently affected by the illness.
Some persons experience avascular necrosis in both hips or knees, for example. Avascular necrosis of the hip can cause pain that is concentrated in the buttock, thigh, or groine. The shoulder, knee, wrist, and foot can also be impacted in addition to the hip.
