Avascular Necrosis

Description

Avascular necrosis is a disease where there is cellular death (necrosis) of bone components due to interruption of the blood supply.  Without blood, the bone tissue dies and the bone collapses.  If avascular necrosis involves the bones of a joint, it often leads to destruction of the joint articular surfaces. Source: Wikipedia
