Poor Pathetic Boys
So there are my 2 Poor Pathetic Boys. Get well boys! Feel better. Be wise, Connor.
**is a joint disorder in which cracks form in the articular cartilage and the underlying subchondral bone. It is caused by blood deprivation in the subchondral bone. This loss of blood flow causes the subchondral bone. This loss of blood flow causes the subchondral bone to die in a process called avascular necrosis. The bone is then reabsorbed by the body, leaving the articular cartilage it supported prone to damage. The result is fragmentation (dissection) of both cartilate and bone, and and free movement of these osteochondral fragments within the join space, causing pain and further damage. In Humans this is a rare disease occurring inonly 15-30 people per 100,000 in the general pupolation each year. Although rare, it is an important cause of join pain in physically active adolescents.
