Abstract

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head is a poorly understood condition that may lead to progressive destruction of the hip joint. Its incidence is common between the third and fifth decades of life and it is the diagnosis behind 5-18% of annually performed total hip arthroplasties (THAs) in the USA.
