A 43 year old man presented to the Avascular Necrosis program at The Denver Clinic for Extremities at Risk with right hip pain that increases with physical activity. He had no history that put him at risk for osteonecrosis but MRI revealed a Ficat Stage II lesion of his femoral head.
This young woman presented to the osteonecrosis program at The Denver Clinic with severe knee pain. She had a previous history of osteochondritis dissecans and previous episodes of knee pain that eventually resolved with prolonged rest. When she presented to the osteonecrosis program her knee pain had not resolved with rest, as it had before. Her MRI showed an area of osteonecrosis on her femoral condyle.
