Avascular Necrosis (AVN)

Avascular Necrosis (AVN), also known as osteonecrosis, is a condition where the bone tissue dies due to a lack of blood supply. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and even joint collapse if left untreated. AVN commonly affects the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle joints.

*What Patients Need to Know:*

1. *Causes*: AVN can be caused by various factors including trauma, long-term steroid use, excessive alcohol consumption, certain medical conditions, and radiation therapy. Understanding the underlying cause is crucial for effective treatment.

2. *Symptoms*: Symptoms of AVN may include pain, especially during movement, stiffness, and limited range of motion in the affected joint. It’s essential to pay attention to these symptoms and seek medical advice promptly.

3. *Diagnosis*: Diagnosis often involves a combination of physical examination, imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans, and sometimes blood tests to assess the underlying cause.

4. *Treatment Options*: Treatment for AVN depends on several factors including the stage of the disease, the severity of symptoms, and the patient’s overall health. Options may include medication to manage pain and inflammation, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and surgical interventions such as core decompression, osteotomy, or joint replacement.

5. *Lifestyle Modifications*: Making lifestyle changes such as reducing alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight can help slow down the progression of AVN and improve outcomes.

6. *Regular Monitoring*: Regular follow-up appointments with a healthcare provider are essential to monitor the progression of AVN and adjust treatment as necessary.
