Abstract

In patients presenting with bone necrosis of the femoral head the cartilage is usually well preserved until the terminal stage of the disease. In some instances, however, an early narrowing of the joint space can occur while the overall shape of the head remains unchanged (Stage I and II of the Arlet-Ficat classification [2]). This peculiar osteochondral type of necrosis is termed “ischaemic coxopathy” [4].
