Avascular Necrosis

Effect of Avascular Necrosis

The amount of disability that results from avascular necrosis depends on what part of the bone is affected, how large an area is involved, and how effectively the bone rebuilds itself.
 
Appropriate treatment for avascular necrosis is necessary to keep joints from breaking down. If left untreated, most people will experience severe pain and limitation in movement within two years (see Avascular Necrosis Pain).
