Avascular Necrosis (AVN) Cases Seen in Covid-recovered Patients

 

As per the latest post-COVID-borne concern, a few cases of Avascular Necrosis (AVN) have been reported in patients of the age group 30-50. This new condition takes some time to show the impact in joints, it may be somewhere between three months to one year. For this reason, experts have already warned the COVID patients to not ignore joint aches, specifically in the shoulders and hips.

What is Avascular Necrosis (AVN)? What causes AVN after COVID?

Avascular Necrosis (AVN) is a steroid-induced condition of death (necrosis) of bone tissue because of lack of blood supply. High dose steroids taken for life saving conditions in covid & non covid situations, soften the bone, and can cause tiny breaks in the bone, or joint dislocation; gradually causing the bone or cartilage to collapse, which interrupts or reduces blood supply too.  

Avascular Necrosis (AVN) might not show any symptoms in the early stages; however, as time passes, the affected joint starts to feel the hurt as some weight is put on it, eventually also when lying down. Pain is usually gradually developed and may be mild or severe. 

AVN may cause swelling & infection, stiffness of joint, joint deterioration, & severe immobility. Pain areas of Avascular Necrosis are hip, groin, thigh or buttock, knee, foot; and may also affect shoulder & hand. The condition might also develop bilaterally, in both sides, such as both knees, or both hips.

Untreated Avascular Necrosis (AVN) Complications

The delay in treatment of AVN may worsen the condition with time. In case of untreated condition, sooner or later, the bone may also collapse. Avascular Necrosis may result in bone to suffer the loss of its smooth shape, with a tendency of severe arthritis.
