AVN of the Knee: No Symptoms after Treatment with Stem Cells
Avascular necrosis (AVN) occurs when the the blood supply to a region of the bone (femur/tibia or both) becomes disrupted leading to bone cell death referred to as necrosis. The hip is most commonly affected in the leg, followed by the knee. Stem cells have been utilized for knee cartilage and osteoarthritis disorders, as well as in avascular necrosis (AVN).
This case illustrates the treatment of an athlete and tennis player who developed AVN in the knee following trauma. Trauma is the leading precipitating factor in the development of AVN. Athletes often wishes to avoid the surgical options for avascular necrosis. These surgical options include core decompression and knee joint replacement. Both are associated with a lengthy recovery, and may not allow the return to sports participation in the athletes chosen field. Remarks to an athlete such as pick another sport are not met with great satisfaction. A sport such as tennis is grueling on the knee, and preservation of joint function is vital to successfully engaging in this sport. For these reasons Stem Cell Therapy, for knee AVN is a viable option. This patient elected to have Stem Cell Therapy, as the symptoms: pain and swelling, precluded her tennis play. After her Stem Cell Therapy, the pain and swelling resolved, walking was now without pain at all. Increased functional activities were allowed, and knee x-rays were stable.
The return to demanding sport is a case by case decision. Proper counseling and advice is paramount. The regenerative physician's role is to guide and facilitate achieving the patient’s goal when practical or feasible. This includes frank discussions of risk when necessary.
