Abstract

In nontraumatic osteonecrosis (ON) of the femoral head, several abnormalities in the coagulation-fi brinolysis system have been reported, including increase of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 level [ 1 ], the presence of antiphospholipid antibodies [ 2 ], familial heterozygous protein S defi ciency [ 3 ], and antithrombin III defi ciency [ 4 ]. These abnormalities are thought to induce hypercoagulability in the blood vessels.
