Abstract:

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is a disabling condition that affects mainly young subjects (average age 33-38 years old); to this day, it has remained a devastating disease. Osteonecrosis may be defined as the death of the cell components of bone - both osteocytes and bone marrow cells. ONFH is not a specific entity, but the final common pathway of various conditions that impair the blood supply to the femoral head - hence the frequently used term avascular necrosis. Surgical technological advancements have improved outcomes for these patients. However, due to the relatively young age of onset, these patients are often subjected to multiple operative procedures during their lifetime. Differential diagnosis should be made with: pigmented villonodular synovitis; idiopathic transient osteoporosis of the hip; stress fractures of femoral neck; metastastic bone carcinoma.

KEY WORDS: OSTEONECROSIS, FEMORAL HEAD, PIGMENTED VILLONODULAR SYNOVITIS, IDIOPATHIC TRANSIENT OSTEOPOROSIS, STRESS FRACTURES, METASTASTIC BONE CARCINOMA
