Symptoms of Shoulder and Elbow AVN

The humerus is the arm bone that runs between the elbow and the shoulder. Fractures or other injuries near either joint can cause AVN. It may take some time after an injury for AVN to appear.

Symptoms include reduced range of motion of the joint, inability to lift objects, pain and swelling. The joint may also appear red. Eventually, if left untreated, the area of reduced blood flow collapses, causing more pain and an inability to move the joint at all.1’Avascular Necrosis’ Mayo Clinic. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/avascular-necrosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20369859
