Avascular Necrosis


               (AVN), also known as osteonecrosis, aseptic necrosis and ischemic bone necrosis, is when bone tissue does not get adequate blood circulation and begins to die at a faster rate than can be repaired. Approximately 10,000 to 20,000 people develop AVN each year in the United States. Early diagnosis and intervention is the key to maintaining an active lifestyle in the shadow of dying bones.
