Intramedullary head pressure changes were studied in a group of cortisone-treated New Zealand white rabbits. In addition to femoral head pressure measurements, serum cholesterol levels were followed serially and pathologic specimens from cortisone-treated femoral heads were obtained. Surgical decompression by a drilling method was performed and pressures were remeasured at four weeks following decompression. Persistent increases in cholesterol levels and in intrafemoral head pressures were… CONTINUE READING
