However, there is little information in the literature about the rate of progression of osteonecrosis once symptoms begin. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the natural history of the symptomatic hip in adult patients with osteonecrosis and sickle-cell disease. METHODS Ninety-two symptomatic hips in sixty-four consecutive adult patients with sickle-cell disease were… CONTINUE READING
