Clinical and Experimental Forum

Summary

Revitalization of the femoral head in cases of aseptic necrosis was attempted in 13 hips of 11 patients 15–33 years of age. The necrotic bone was replaced by a vascularized pedicular iliac bone graft and free cancellous transplants. The results after an average follow-up of 53 months are satisfying in some cases. The surgical technique used is simple and applicable when a vascularized bone graft is needed in the hip region.
