Enoxaparin Prevents Steroid-Related Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head
Ladewig stained sagittal sections of the femoral head. Methylprednisolone treatment induces osteonecrosis demonstrated by an increase of empty osteocyte lacunae (c) in comparison to PBS treated control animals (a and b). Enoxaparin cotreatment leads to a decrease of empty osteocyte lacunae and adipocytes (d). Bar represents 100 μm.
