Özet

Objective: Osteonecrosis of the femoral head, a disease primarily affecting young adults, is often associated with the collapse of the articular surface and subsequent arthrosis. Some authors have reported good results with the use of vascularized and non-vascularized fibular grafts to treat osteonecrotic lesions of the femoral head. The aim of this study was to compare the results of vascularized fibular grafting with that of non-vascularized fibular grafting in the treatment of femoral head osteonecrosis.
