Avascular Necrosis

Avascular Necrosis

An injury to the hip, such as a dislocation or fracture, may limit the blood supply to the femoral head. This is called avascular necrosis (also commonly referred to as Osteonecrosis). The lack of blood may cause the surface of the bone to collapse, and arthritis will result.
