bone infarction : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

is a bone infarction the same as osteonecrosis??? i know that trauma (or any cutoff of the blood supply to the bone) is one of the reasons for this disease. i guess my question would be how exactly would the blood supply be cutoff??? please help ASAP

Yes, bone infarction and AVN are essentially the same thing.
