I have osteonecrosis in the hip and nobody of my family never had that disease. I would like a lot of knowing if she has some possibility of her it was caused by current personal very small traumatisms of intensive physical activities, since I am soldierly and also physical education teacher. For the that I know, small traumatisms can lead to the appearance of clot. Is that correct? It is very important for me to have that answer. In advance I thank,

I am unsure of what the question is that you are asking? Osteonecrosis can be caused by several things. Use of alcohol, oral steroids, or trauma or frequently the cause of osteonecrosis. To determine the cause of your osteonecrosis is not possible without an indepth medical interview.You would need to make an appointment, have x-ray evaluation, and be seen in our office. Please let me know if I can be of any further help.

It is becoming more known that root canals can cause osteonecrosis of the jaw bone due to the bacteria that are trapped in the dead tooth's root which, because the nerve and blood supply have been stripped away, are not cleaned out by the immune system. These bacteria thrive in the root and toxins seep out into the surrounding bone structure and blood stream causing a number of health problems. Is there something about Luiz's hip that is harbouring some other bacteria that would result in a similar situation? Just a thought.
