This is the diagnosis sent to me following my appointment on 10-June.
AVN (Avascular Necrosis) of the right femoral head post DHS (Dynamic Hip Screw) and cannulated screw fixation done November 2105
We reviewed this lady again today in the clinic. She was seen last time 6 weeks ago but she asked to be seen earlier than the expected appointment. She complains of worsening right hip pain that shoots down to her knee. Repeat radiographs today have demonstrated significant collapsing and flattening of the right femoral head with some kind of osteophyte on the lateral boarder of the femoral head and proximal migration of the cannulated screw with evidence of shortening of the femoral neck. Clinically and radiographically it seems that this has started to have some avascular necrosis of the femoral head.
