Enoxaparin Prevents Steroid-Related Avascular Necrosis of the Femoral Head

Figure 3

Enoxaparin treatment prevents necrotic changes of osteocytes. Methylprednisolone treatment induced osteonecrosis demonstrated by necrotic changes of osteocytes (c + d) in comparison to PBS treated control animals (a). Enoxaparin cotreatment leads to a decrease of necrotic changed osteocytes (b). Bar represents 50 μm.
