Osteonecrosis of the Hip: A Primer.

07:00 EST 1st January 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Osteonecrosis of the Hip: A Primer."

In this report, we deliver a concise and up-to-date review of osteonecrosis, a pathologic, painful, and often disabling condition that is believed to result from the temporary or permanent disruption of blood supply to an affected area of bone. We will discuss the epidemiology (disease distribution), pathogenesis (mechanism of development), etiology (associated risk factors, causes, and disorders), clinical manifestations (reported symptoms and physical findings), diagnosis and classification, and treatment options for hip osteonecrosis.

A unique DNA sequence of a replicon at which DNA REPLICATION is initiated and proceeds bidirectionally or unidirectionally. It contains the sites where the first separation of the complementary strands occurs, a primer RNA is synthesized, and the switch from primer RNA to DNA synthesis takes place.
