Osteonecrosis

Osteonecrosis is a condition in which bone tissues die due to lack of blood supply. It is a painful condition of the bone that limits one’s physical activity and mostly affects the hip, knees and shoulders.

Causes

Reduced blood supply which leads to osteonecrosis can be caused by factors like:

  • Physical trauma such as injury
  • Use of corticosteroids
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia
  • Radiation exposure for cancer treatments
  • Fat deposits in blood
Symptoms

Pain is the most important symptom of osteonecrosis. There might not be any symptoms in the beginning. A mild pain that develops gradually progresses to severe pain.

Diagnosis

The doctor reviews your signs and symptoms, performs a physical examination along with imaging procedures to diagnose osteonecrosis.

  • X-ray
  • MRI
  • CT Scan
  • Bone Scan
Prevention
  • Avoid high dose of steroids
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol
  • Maintain good blood cholesterol levels
Treatment

There is no cure for osteonecrosis. Treatment can be done to prevent further damage to the bones. Medications and surgery are the major treatment measures for osteonecrosis.

  • Some of the important medicines include blood thinners, anti inflammatory drugs and drugs to reduce cholesterol levels.
  • Surgery is a major treatment option as in most of the cases, the condition is diagnosed in advanced stages. Surgery is done to replace the affected joints or shaping the affected bones and other procedures according to the condition.
