We conclude that the risk of developing osteonecrosis after a single intraarticular injection of corticosteroid needs to be considered in the informed consent process. 1Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR Corresponding Author: Erik Ensrud, MD, Sam Jackson Hall, Suite 2360, 3181 S.W.
