Avascular Necrosis Of The Hip Mri
After having hip pain due to injury, MRI showed "avascular necrosis of the hips bilaterally, right greater than left". Is this curable or permanent?
Permanent: This is commonly associated with long term alcohol use, steroid use, or disuse of hips. Do you meet any of these categories? If not, you need to find out why you have it, including rare genetic causes, infections and medications. You should make sure you get a reason for it at your age. Some early results have been seen with stem cell replacement. Next step is hip replacement if it gets too bad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

I am a lupus sufferer and I have recently been diagnosed with avascular necrosis of my right hip after performing a MRI scan. Treatment options?
Orthopedic Eval: I would strongly recommend that you go have an orthopedic evaluation, preferably with an adult hip specialist. Treatment for this can range from observation, medication, to surgery. Treatment for avascular necrosis once the hip has collapsed requires a total hip replacement. Sometimes surgeries can be done before the hip collapses to help preserve your native hip. Get it evaluated. ...Read more
MRI report said either subchondral fracture of navicular or avascular necrosis. If it's a fracture, does that mean it went necrotic? Very confused
Pain pain limpping: Many people have no symptoms in the early stages of avascular necrosis of bone. 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. Pain associated with avascular necrosis of the hip may be focused in the groin, thigh or buttock. ...Read more
Hip joint breakdown: Avascular necrosis represents a spectrum of issues that advance from mild hip pain early in the process and heads toward varying degrees of femoral head collapse and severe pain with limited function.

Depends on severity: Avascular necrosis is also known as avn or osteonecrosis- a condition in which the blood supply to the hip ball (the femoral head) is compromised. There are different staging systems for avn- designed to identify the severity of the disease, and thereby help with treatment recommendations. Treatment ranges from observation to a "core decompression" procedure to hip replacement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whatever works: That was a terse answer, but that is the truth. Everything from over the counter meds to narcotics need to be used, but most people will eventually need narcotics due to the intense pain. Bisphosphonates are used to slow the damage, but does not alleviate the pain. Surgery is the definitive solution. ...Read more
Can brown recluse spider venom cause avascular necrosis of the hip the bite was 5 inches above the knee the hip pain began 1 month after spider bite?
Not likely!: There are no associated reports of this linkage. Both are not uncommon and coincidently may occur together. Avascular necrosis is a severe form of arthritis of the hip caused by disruption of the blood supply to the cartilage on top of the hip. Ultimately leading to hip replacement. Stop gap procedures are in my opinion, ineffectual. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bone Destruction: Avascular necrosis means there is no blood getting to a particular body part. Our body parts need blood to survive, including bones (bones are living tissue). Necrosis refers to the dying of cells that make up that body part.
