Hi Kiran.

Causes for avascular necrosis are many, but the main gist of the cause is a circulatory abnormality. Most common is fracture around the neck of the femur. Treatment depends on the extent of necrosis, in most cases requiring removal of the femoral head and replacement with prosthesis.

Best wishes.
