A Case Series of Avascular Necrosis of Left Hip Managed by Core Decompression with Bone Marrow Injection Procedure
Aim: The main aim of the study is to prospectively analyse the functional outcome of avascular necrosis of hip managed by core decompression with bone marrow injection procedure.
Methods: A prospective analysis of 17 patients (9 men and 8 women, with mean age 35 years) with modified ficat and alert classification avascular necrosis of hip managed by core decompression with bone marrow injection procedure between July 2019 and July 2021 was performed. The outcomes were studied based on Range of Motion (ROM) and Visual Analog Score (VAS).
Results: The mean ROM and VAS at the interval of 3 weeks, 5 weeks, 7 weeks, 6 months, 1 year shows excellent improvement. The mean VAS score is 8.8 and range of motion is excellent.
Conclusion: In the present study, 17 patients with avascular necrosis of hip managed by core decompression with bone marrow injection procedure. Management of avascular necrosis of hip by core decompression with bone marrow injection allows for early rehabilitation of the patient and has excellent functional outcome with less incidence of complications. Hence, we strongly recommend considering it in the management of avascular necrosis of hip.
