Is osteopenia a precursor to AVN?greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
One of our support group members just asked a very good question, so I am turning to the experts for some information. Is osteopenia related in any way to Avascular necrosis/osteonecrosis? Could it be looked at as some kind of precursor to AVN? Are the two conditions caused by the same, or similar circumstances, or are they totally unrelated? Many thanks...
