Osteonecrosis of the Knee: Causes, Management & Prevention
Not yet rated
Osteonecrosis of the knee can be a devastating problem. Fortunately it is an uncommon condition but can occur spontaneously or as a complication of other conditions. Spontaneous OsteoNecrosis of the Knee (SONK) has also been associated with arthroscopy of the knee. The mechanism of this association is unclear but has become the topic of debate and even legal claims.
This Symposium will focus on the pathogenesis of SONK and review the current literature. Also the speakers will focus on how this condition might be anticipated and hopefully prevented. Treatment options ranging from non-operative to arthroplasty will be discussed.
