Introduction Trabecular properties in osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) are altered for bone volume and structure in the femoral head and proximal femoral canal. We analysed the periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) as a correlate to bony ingrowth in patients with ONFH who received a cementless THA. Materials and methods We performed a matched-pair analysis of 100 patients with ONFH (n ...
