Once steroid-associated osteonecrosis develops it becomes refractory to treatment, and when the femoral head is crushed severe coxalgia and disturbed ambulation become major issues affecting patient quality of life. For these reasons numerous studies have been undertaken to better define the pathophysiology of steroid-associated osteonecrosis and establish optimal prophylactic and therapeutic modalities. And although steroid-associated osteonecrosis has in general been attributed to ischemia, much remains unclear about both its underlying developmental mechanisms and pathophysiology [1][2][3].. In organisms relying on aerobic respiration energy is produced by the reduction of oxygen, in the process of which reactive oxygen species are generated. On the other hand, cells possess antioxidant molecules against these reactive oxygen species, which comprehensively maintain the in vivo oxidation-reduction reaction in a state of equilibrium. However, when for whatever reason a tendency toward an ...
Bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw (BON, BONJ) is death of the jawbone in a person with a history of bisphosphonate use who undergoes subsequent dental surgery. It may lead to surgical complication in the form of impaired wound healing following oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontal surgery, or endodontic therapy. An association between history of bisphosphonate use and osteonecrosis of the jaw after later surgery was detected for several years and its cause is still not entirely clear. BON has been nicknamed "bis-phossy jaw" based on its similarity with phossy jaw. There is no known prevention for bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw. Avoiding the use of bisphosphonates is not a viable preventive strategy on a general-population basis because the medications are beneficial in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis (including prevention of bony fractures) and treatment of bone cancers. Osteonecrosis, or localized death of bone tissue, of the jaws is a ...

BACKGROUND Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK) is a clinical entity identified by acute knee pain usually associated with joint effusion, with radiographic findings of a radiolucent defect on the weightbearing area of the femoral condyle. Conservative treatment is initially undertaken; however, surgical procedures are often necessary. Historically, surgical options have included core decompression, cartilage repair, high tibial osteotomy, or joint arthroplasty. Few studies in the literature have reported the use of fresh osteochondral allograft (OCA) for the treatment of SONK lesions. HYPOTHESIS OCA transplantation is an effective treatment for SONK lesions on the medial femoral condyle. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level of evidence, 4. METHODS A case series was analyzed of 7 patients treated with OCA for large SONK lesions of the medial femoral condyle with a minimum 4-year follow-up. All patients experienced failure of at least 6 months of conservative treatment and declined arthroplasty
Background: Bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ/BP-ONJ/BRONJ) is a commonly seen disease. During recent decades, major advances in diagnostics have occurred. Once the clinical picture shows typical MRONJ features, imaging is necessary to determine the size of the lesion. Exposed bone is not always painful, therefore a thorough clinical examination and radiological imaging are essential when MRONJ is suspected. Methods: In this paper we will present the latest clinical update on the imaging options in regard to MRONJ: X-ray/Panoramic Radiograph, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Imaging, Fluorescence-Guided Bone Resection. Conclusion: Which image modality is chosen depends not only on the surgeons/practitioners preference but also on the available imaging modalities. A three-dimensional imaging modality is desirable, and in severe cases necessary, for extended resections and planning of reconstruction.
Peter A. Huijbregts, PT, OCS, FAAOMPT. Abstract: Osteonecrosis of the humeral head may be idiopathic, but it is also associated with a number of known medical conditions. In these patient groups, it is a differential diagnostic possibility that the physical therapist needs to consider. This article discusses histopathology, classification, etiology, history and examination findings, and treatment of humeral head osteonecrosis. It also presents two case studies of patients with undiagnosed osteonecrosis who were referred to physical therapy to illustrate the difficulties and possibilities for correct identification of such patients.. Key Words: Osteonecrosis, Humeral head, Bone. Osteonecrosis is defined as the in situ death of cells within the bone due to a lack of circulation and not as a direct result of disease1,2. The cells involved may include osteocytes, both in cortical and cancellous bone, and hematopoietic and fat cells in the marrow cavity1. Osteonecrosis is also often referred to as ...
Osteonecrosis is caused by the loss of blood supply to the bone. Without blood, the bone tissue dies, causing the bone to break down and collapse.. In people with healthy bones, the body makes new bone to replace old or injured bones. This process takes place during normal growth and after an injury to keep the bones strong. If you have osteonecrosis, your bone breaks down faster than your body can make enough new bone.. The prognosis for people with osteonecrosis varies from person to person. It depends on what part of the bone is affected by osteonecrosis, how much of the bone is affected, and how well the bone rebuilds itself.. Most people with osteonecrosis require treatment to prevent further bone damage, protect the bones and joints, and improve the use of joints with osteonecrosis.. Without treatment, the disease worsens and bone and joints break down and most people with the disease will have severe pain and limited movement within two years. ...
Symptoms vary depending on the type of osteonecrosis. Spontaneous osteonecrosis typically causes the sudden onset of pain. This pain may be most noticeable during episodes of increased activity. It may occur when bearing weight or when climbing stairs. Pain may also occur at night. Secondary osteonecrosis is often associated with chronic, deep-rooted pain. Both types of osteonecrosis can limit the mobility of the knee joint. ...
We hypothesized that overall disease activity or the severity of involvement of individual disease compartments, as measured by clinical and surrogate markers, predict the risk of avascular osteonecrosis (AVN) or fractures in type 1 Gaucher disease (GD1). We applied our risk-set matched case-control method to identify four patient groups within the International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Registry based on the presence and absence of AVN and fractures. Characteristics of GD1 were examined by comparing the distributions of each risk factor in cases versus matched controls using conditional logistic regression to calculate adjusted odds ratios (OR). Potential risk factors included hematological and visceral parameters, GD1 biomarkers, white blood cells, GBA1 genotype, and spine and femur dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) Z-scores. In the total population of 5894 ICGG Gaucher Registry patients, 544 experienced at least one episode of AVN; 2008 reported no history of AVN. Clinical and

This is an official publication of data that had been reported previously at science conferences. The authors report a high rate of symptomless osteonecrosis as measured by MRI in HIV+ persons. But the authors conclude they cannot determine if this high rate is due to HIV or by some of the drugs taken and intense bodybuilding exercises performed by some of the study participants who had HIV infection. Osteonecrosis was more frequent among the HIV-infected persons who had used steroids, lipid-lowering drugs, or testosterone and among those who routinely did bodybuilding exercises. None of the adults without HIV infection were found to have osteonecrosis. Although this study did not involve patients with hip pain, osteonecrosis should probably be considered in HIV-infected persons who begin to have pain and problems with their hips ...

This study was designed to evaluate symptomatic ON in a large cohort of long-term childhood leukemia survivors, with a separate analysis of patients treated by chemotherapy alone or by chemotherapy and HSCT. The cumulative incidence estimation was 2.8% for all patients, 6.8% after HSCT and 1.4% in the chemotherapy group.. In previous publications, the incidence estimation has been variable, probably reflecting differences in the definition (symptomatic or asymptomatic) and detection methods of ON, anti-leukemic treatments and cohort sizes.20 Our estimation is similar to those reported after several chemotherapeutic protocols such as the BFM 95 with 1.8% in 1951 patients,21 the UKALL XII with 4% in 1053 patients,22 and in a study from Greece that found a cumulative incidence of 2.5% in 276 patients.23 In some other cohorts, reported incidences have been higher, ranging from 7.1 to 14%.15,24-27 The time of occurrence we describe here is also comparable with many existing studies who reported a ...
Osteonecrosis of the hips. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence showing osteonecrosis of the hips in a 45-year-old man. The sequence shows a coronal view of the hip region, moving through the hips from back to front, and then back again. The backbone, genitals, and leg muscle (grey) and surface fat (white) are also seen. The necrotic bone is in the femoral heads, and is the grey areas at the tips of the bone (white). Also known as avascular necrosis or aseptic necrosis, this condition is caused by poor blood supply to the affected area and the bone marrow. It can cause the bone and joint to collapse, and hip joints may need replacing or resurfacing. In this case, a total hip replacement will be needed in the next few years. - Stock Video Clip K003/1302

Other terminologies used previously include "denosumab related osteonecrosis of the jaw" (DRONJ), and "antiresorptive agent-induced ONJ" (ARONJ).. The aetiopathogenesis of MRONJ related to denosumab therapy remains enigmatic, and hypotheses have focused on reduced bony turnover, infection, toxicity of the soft tissue, and antiangiogenesis. The epidemiology also remains unclear, and reported incidence varies widely.6 Overall, it is estimated that bone necrosis can develop in about 0.7-1.9% of patients with malignancy who are given high-potency IV BPs (such as zoledronic acid), and in 0.01-0.1% of those with osteoporosis who take low-potency oral BPs (such as alendronate). Data relevant to denosumab given subcutaneously in patients with metastatic cancer and osteoporosis seem to replicate those when IV high-potency BPs are administered.7 The risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is higher in patients exposed to concomitant antiagiogenic medication. The individuals risk of ONJ is further ...
Cancer and its treatment can come with a variety of complications, some more serious than others.. What Is Osteonecrosis of the Jaw?. Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is a severe bone disease that occurs when the jawbone is exposed and begins to starve from lack of blood. In short, the bone begins to weaken and die. The condition is characterized by an intraoral lesion of exposed bone that lasts for 8 weeks or more. The lesion may be accompanied by pain, inflammation of surrounding soft tissue, secondary infection, and drainage.. What Causes ONJ?. There is no certainty as to what causes ONJ; however, the condition is associated with cancer treatment, infection, steroid use, and the use of antiresorptive agents, which are drugs that help prevent bone loss. ONJ can also occur without any identifiable risk factors.. Though the exact cause of ONJ is unknown, researchers have speculated that it could be related to a decrease in blood vessel formation, the effects of infection, or a decrease in the ...

Five hips are now failures (collapse) with a stage III at the last revision. The other hips are pain free and stage Il. The postoperative MRI demonstrates a modification of the signal in most cases and a disparition of the necrosis in four cases. The number of transplanted cells was calculated in a laboratory study; the number of nucleated cells was counted in the marrow transplanted and the fibroblast colony forming cells (CFU-F) were cloned to appreciate the activity and the number of progenitor in the marrow transplanted; failures of this technique (five hips with stage 3) occurred in patients with a low number of transplanted cells (average 2000 CFU-F for failures and average 25000 CFU-F for the other hips). ...

N2 - Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is a serious adverse reaction of antiresorptive and antiangiogenic agents; it is a potentially painful and debilitating condition that can considerably affect the quality of life of patients. Furthermore, even if its epidemiology and pathogenesis have still not been fully clarified, several risk factors related to MRONJ have been recognized in prevention protocols. Three main risk factors are as follows: (i) the type of ONJ-related medications: antiresorptive (e.g., Bisphosphonates, Denosumab) and antiangiogenic drugs (e.g., Bevacizumab, Sunitinib); (ii) the category of patient at MRONJ risk: ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: One of the main concerns regarding resurfacing arthroplasty is the viability of the remaining part of the femoral head, and the postoperative risk of a femoral neck fracture or collapse. In contrast to radiographic methods, positron emission tomography using the radiotracer [18F]-fluoride (Fluoride-PET) enables us to visualize the viability of bone in the remaining part of the head, despite the presence of the covering metal component. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is preliminary prospective study of 14 patients who underwent an ASR resurfacing arthroplasty. Apart from clinical and radiographic analyses, all patients were analyzed by PET scan 1 week, 4 months, and 1 year after surgery. RESULTS: 1 patient had a minor region of osteonecrosis on PET scan at 1 week and at 4 months. After 1 year, the necrosis had increased to include most of the head. 2 other patients, normal at 4 months, had developed equally large osteonecrosis at 1 year. A fourth patient had a minor ...

Avascular necrosis is also called osteonecrosis. Orthopedic surgeon, Dr Thane Morgan in Amarillo, TX offers core decompression, bone transplant, bone reshaping and joint replacement.
This procedure involves drilling one larger hole or several smaller holes into the femoral head to relieve pressure in the bone and create channels for new blood vessels to nourish the affected areas of the hip.. When osteonecrosis of the hip is diagnosed early, core decompression is often successful in preventing collapse of the femoral head and the development of arthritis.. Core decompression is often combined with bone grafting to help regenerate healthy bone and support cartilage at the hip joint. A bone graft is healthy bone tissue that is transplanted to an area of the body where it is needed.. Many bone graft options are available today. The standard technique is to take extra bone from one part of your body (harvest) and move (graft) it to another part of your body. This type of graft is called an autograft.. Many surgeons use bone that is harvested from a donor or cadaver. This type of graft is typically acquired through a bone bank. Like other organs, bone can be donated upon ...
What is osteonecrosis? Osteonecrosis is a bone disease. It results from the loss of blood supply to the bone. Without blood, the bone tissue dies. This causes the bone to collapse. It may also cause the joints that surround the bone to collapse. If you have osteonecrosis, you may have pain or be limited in your physical activity. Osteonecrosis can develop in any bone, most often in the: Thigh bone (femur). Upper arm bone (humerus). Knees. Shoulders. Ankles. It is also called: Avascular necrosis. Aseptic necrosis. Ischemic necrosis ...
This online CEU course contains general information about Avascular Necrosis. Avascular necrosis is a disease resulting from the temporary or permanent loss of the blood supply to the bones.

Authors: Thorey, Fritz , Reck, Felix , Windhagen, Henning , von Lewinski, Gabriela Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Osteonecrosis of the femoral head is a more progressive disease for which many patients will eventually require total hip arthroplasty. With the advent of improved metal-on-metal prostheses, total hip resurfacing arthroplasty has emerged as a viable treatment option. However, it remains controversial whether this procedure should be used in patients with osteonecrosis when the femoral resurfacing component is implanted onto non-vital bone. In this study the bone mineral density (BMD) of osteonecrotic …femoral heads were compared with the BMD of osteoarthrotic femoral heads. The purpose of this study was to analyse the differences between these two groups to gather information that may be useful in predicting the outcome of total hip resurfacing arthroplasty in cases of severe osteonecrosis of the femoral head. The femoral heads were classified according to the ARCO ...
