Avascular Necrosis (AVN) Hip
Avascular necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. Also called osteonecrosis, avascular necrosis can lead to tiny breaks in the bone and the bone’s eventual collapse. The hip is the joint most commonly affected by avascular necrosis.
- As the disease worsens, your affected joint may hurt only when you put weight on it. Eventually, the joint may hurt even when you’re lying down.
- Pain can be mild or severe and usually develops gradually.
