Conference paper


The causes and the development of intraosseous degenerative bone cysts are not well known to date and they are among the mostly often discussed problems of coxarthrosis [1–5, 7–10]. We have tried to understand the principle of this pathological process by analysing the histological changes in relation to bone circulation.
