Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for the preservation of the hip joint in osteonecrosis of the femoral head. In advanced femoral head collapse (>2mm), hip preserving procedures are less effective and arthroplasty has a better outcome.

Actualización sobre el tratamiento de la osteonecrosis de la cabeza femoral

El diagnóstico precoz y el tratamiento son esenciales para preservar la articulación de la cadera en la osteonecrosis de la cabeza femoral. En el colapso femoral avanzado (> 2 mm), los procedimientos conservadores son menos eficaces y la artroplastia se asocia con mejor evolución.
