Clinical Trial Summary

Avascular necrosis (AVN) is a serious complication of sickle cell disease, especially in pediatric patients where the prevalence is between 3% and 8% and are more frequent in patients with multiple vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC). The prevalence of AVN is usually made by a study of the hip through radiography, whereas other possible sites of ischemic infarcts are evaluated only in case of specific symptoms. In addition, bone infarcts may be the trigger for additional VOC. In this study, we want to investigate the presence of possible bone lesions even in asymptomatic or paucisymptomatic children. This is a prospective interventional and monocentric study whose objective is to describe the prevalence of osteonecrosis in children with sickle cell disease in Italy
