Question 65: Has avascular necrosis occurred?

Avascular necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of adequate blood supply. It is sometimes called osteonecrosis. Avascular necrosis can lead to minute fractures in the bone followed by eventual collapse.

Report Yes if the recipient developed avascular necrosis at any time between diagnosis and the start of the preparative regimen / infusion. If avascular necrosis did not occur or no information is available to determine if avascular necrosis occurred at any time between diagnosis and the start of the preparative regimen / infusion, report No or Unknown and go to question 68.

Questions 66 – 67: Specify joint(s) affected (check all that apply)

Specify the joint affected by avascular necrosis. If more than one joint was affected, select all that apply. If avascular necrosis affected a joint that is not listed, report Other and specify the affected joint in question 67.
