Title: Serum ferritin and dysbaric osteonecrosis
Author: Gregg, PJ; Eastham, EJ; Bell, JI; Walder, DN
Abstract: Bone and marrow necrosis has been produced in rabbits. Changes in serum ferritin levels have been measured (with appropriate controls). Results suggest that marrow death is followed by a significant rise in serum ferritin levels. The possiblitiy that this may be of value in the early diagnosis of dysbaric osteonecrosis is discussed.
