Avascular Necrosis (cont.)

Avascular Necrosis Prevention

Avoiding injuries, such as fracture of bone and dislocation of joints, will eliminate the risk of trauma-associated avascular necrosis. The key to the prevention of joint destruction from avascular necrosis is early diagnosis of the underlying cause. Optimal treatment of underlying diseases or conditions can reduce the risk of developing avascular necrosis.
