METHODS We prospectively analysed cryofibrinogen levels by immunofixation electrophoresis in 50 patients with non-traumatic ON, 50 healthy volunteers and 8 patients with traumatic ON. Staging of disease involving the femoral heads and the size of necrotic lesions were assessed by the Association Research Circulation Osseous (ARCO) classification… CONTINUE READING
