Fifty-one renal allograft recipients (15-62 years old, mean: 37 years) were monitored for 2.5-6.5 years (average: 4.3 years) after surgery by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to find (i) initial signs of osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONF), (ii) the presence of bone marrow edema as an initial sign of ONF, (iii) any changes of MRI patterns, and (iv) the relationship between these MRI findings and prognosis. MRI was performed preoperatively (baseline), and whenever possible during the 6… CONTINUE READING
