  • CONCLUSIONS: THA in patients with illicit drug abuse shows a low success rate. Following septic osteoarthritis or osteonecrosis in drug-addicted patients, we recommend a two-stage procedure with temporary insertion of a drug-eluting spacer. THA might follow only under strict premises.
  • Classification systems of hip osteonecrosis: an updated review. [Review]
  • IOInt Orthop 2018 Jun 18
  • Sultan AA, Mohamed N, … Mont MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: To this date, there is a lack of consensus on a universal and comprehensive system, and the use of any of the previous classification systems is a matter of dealer's choice. The Ficat and Arlet system was the earliest yet remains the most widely utilized system. Newer classification systems have been developed and some such as the JIC shows promising prognostic value while maintaining simplicity. However, larger validating studies are needed. While all of these systems have their strengths, the lack of a unified classification and staging system is still a problem in the diagnosis and prognosis ONFH. Further multi-center collaborative efforts among osteonecrosis experts are needed to adopt a universal classification system that may positively reflect on patient's outcomes.
