Abstract

Medial condylar osteonecrosis is a well-known clinical entity. In 1968, Ahlbach et al. gave a detailed description of this disease. Some French research has been published on knee osteonecrosis (Fages, Duparc, Daumont et al. 1976; Ficat and Arlet 1977), but since 1976 there has been no more. Various American authors (Lotke et al. 1982; Koshino 1982; Aglietti) have used new methods like arthroscopy and, particularly, bone scintigraphy.
