Nasal septal perforation in lupus may be secondary to vasculitis or to ischemia with subsequent chondrolysis
Importantly, there were no indications of chondrolysis
, osteonecrosis, subchondral insufficiency fractures, or clinically significant subchondral bone changes in any subgroup.
(18) Other complications include femoral acetabular impingement and chondrolysis
, for which MR is often useful in detecting.

Hyaluronic acid suppresses fibronectin fragment mediated cartilage chondrolysis
Intraarticular lidocaine was not used, so it is unlikely a result of chondrolysis
. Capsular repair was performed, so it is unlikely that the patient developed instability in the 2 weeks between procedures.
Nonetheless, this unresponsiveness only informed us that MTDs might not cause direct chondrolysis
but they may still play a crucial role in injury-induced cartilage degradation since data have shown that MTDs could stimulate monocytes, inside synovium or infiltrated after injuries, to produce significant amount of inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-[alpha] .
Radiographs showed no signs of avascular necrosis or chondrolysis
of the epiphysis; the physis showed no signs of early partial closure.
No avascular necrosis was found and there were no cases of chondrolysis
One 19-year-old patient's course was complicated by chondrolysis
and went on to total joint arthroplasty.
Follow-up MRI was done in all of them immediately after reduction, then at 6 and 18 months to diagnose any labral tear or physeal injuries and also evaluate for any occurrence of chondrolysis
That is, use of local anesthetics intra-articularly is an off label use that now carries a warning for potential risk of chondrolysis
by the FDA (Beyzadeoglu et al., 2012).
