    Avascular Necrosis, commonly known as AVN, refers to the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply, leading to joint pain and potential complications.

    Various factors, including fractures, dislocations, excessive alcohol consumption, prolonged use of high-dose steroid medications, and certain medical conditions, can cause AVN.

    AVN is typically diagnosed through physical examinations, patient history, and imaging tests like X-rays, MRI, or bone scans.

     Early symptoms may include minor joint pain that intensifies over time, limited range of motion, and discomfort that becomes more pronounced with activity.

    No, while both conditions affect the joints, AVN is caused by reduced blood flow to the bone, whereas osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease.

    Yes, early stages of AVN can sometimes be managed with non-surgical treatments like medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes. However, advanced cases might require surgical intervention.


    While not all cases are preventable, reducing risk factors like excessive alcohol intake, avoiding prolonged high-dose steroid use, and seeking timely treatment for joint injuries can help.

    The progression of AVN varies among individuals. Many can lead a normal life with early detection and appropriate treatment, but in advanced cases, the condition can be chronic.

    If left untreated, AVN can lead to severe joint pain, arthritis, and even joint collapse, necessitating joint replacement surgery.

    Yes, maintaining a healthy weight, engaging in low-impact exercises, and avoiding activities that strain the affected joint excessively can help manage the condition.
