Avascular Necrosis

About Avascular Necrosis: Avascular Necrosis means the death of bone tissue caused by lack of blood supply. It is very important to get treatment at an early stage.

An alternative to surgery is Regenerative Medicine therapies such as stem cell treatments for Avascular Necrosis that may help rebuild your bone(s).

Knee Avascular Necrosis Can Stem Cells Make a Difference

Avascular necrosis (AVN) has been treated with stem cells for some time, just under different names and applications. Knee AVN is only followed by the hip in leg frequency of AVN occurrence.

Spontaneous Avascular Necrosis of the Capitate Treatment with Stem Cells

Avascular necrosis (AVN) in the wrist and hand is less common than the shoulder joint. Stem cells have been used in the treatment of avascular necrosis (AVN). The most common sites of AVN in the wrist are the lunate followed by the scaphoid. Spontaneous or idiopathic AVN is associated with no known cause. Idiopathic AVN of the lunate is known as kleinbock's disease, and idiopathic AVN of the scaphoid is known as Preiser's disease. Quite rare is spontaneous AVN of the capitate, so much so it has no common name.

Ankle Avascular Necrosis

Avascular necrosis is a disorder in which the blood supply to the bone has been disrupted, resulting in bone cell death or necrosis.

Shoulder Avascular Necrosis

Shoulder Avascular Necrosis sometimes referred to as osteonecrosis, may occur in any bone. It develops when the blood supply to a region of bone has been disrupted. The shoulder is affected frequently, behind the hip and knee. Many causes have been attributed to avascular necrosis (AVN), yet trauma is the leading precipitating factor.

Hip Avascular Necrosis

Hip Avascular necrosis, also known as osteonecrosis is a medical condition involving death and decay of bone tissue (necrosis). Avascular necrosis results from loss of blood supply to the effected area and is similar to heart tissue that loses blood supply during a heart attack. Unlike cardiac tissue, which heals with scar tissue, necrotic bone decays and surrounding areas may collapse or degenerate quickly. Loss of blood flow can result from joint injury, narrowed or clogged blood vessels (from fat or sickle cell anemia), or from excessive pressure inside the bone (caused by conditions like Legg-Calve-Perthes disease or Gaucher’s disease).
