Even if osteonecrosis develops in close proximity to a fracture site, the break will mend normally. In advanced cases, however, the microscopic capillaries that supply the fracture site with blood and oxygen may have been damaged, leading to the development of a tumor or cyst in the bones.
Typically, this is brought on by calcium shards that have accumulated inside the blood vessels. This “plugging” prevents blood and nutrients from reaching the tissues nearby.
Despite the fact that this complication may not have been present at the time of the initial injury, it may emerge later on as a result of the decreased blood flow rates caused by the calcification of the vessels. This is indeed one of the most typical explanations for bone death following trauma.
While this may not be permanent, it may necessitate more intervention at the fracture site than would be necessary otherwise.
If osteonecrosis has developed as a result of a preexisting illness, such as diabetes, these capillaries may develop a calcified blood clot at any time.
Osteonecrosis and bone marrow
Marrow is the soft, spongy material found inside most bones and is largely responsible for the survival of bone cells. Here, in this tissue, osteoblasts are actively engaged in the process of forming brand-new bone. The high concentration of red blood cells in certain areas prevents blood arteries from penetrating them.
If a bone has died back due to a lack of blood flow, this is the case. Fat can begin to replace marrow, preventing the long bones from being left with hollow areas.
Despite the fact that this may cause no health problems at all, it may affect how you feel about yourself. In some situations, it might prevent the bones from growing to their normal height. In the worst situation, these voids fill with calcium deposits, leading to abnormally rapid bone development.
Bones can literally be torn apart over time if this continues.
Given that at this point only scraps of brittle bone marrow are keeping them together. Instead of being held together by living, healthy tissue. As time goes on, they can break down into a jumble of bones. Because of this, the deformity becomes much more extreme than it was before the injury.
Osteonecrosis Healing Treatment
Surprisingly, some patients have been able to live their entire lives with this type of underdeveloped skeletal structure without experiencing any serious health problems! This level of poor development cannot be explained by anything other than decades of reduced blood flow rates within the long bones, which would have deprived them of the critical supply of nutrients within these red blood cells.
We treat patients suffering from AVN(osteonecrosis healing) to heal without the need for surgery. Special techniques are used by our doctors to carefully restore bones and joints. While preserving as much healthy tissue from the affected area as possible. In addition, after completing their Avascular Necrosis treatment, we provide our patients with a combination of rejuvenating therapies, so they feel stronger, more flexible, and more energized than ever before.
