Brief Answer:
Aspirin prevents AVN severity progression. Cod liver oil not known

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

According to the literature, studies show that Aspirin has got nearly 27% chance of preventing progression of low grade AVN to higher grade. This is quite significantly positive.

Regarding cod liver oil, not many reputed studies have been done to comment on its effect on AVN. Though some study claims it could increase risk of AVN due to its viscous nature.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
