How many steroids does it take? : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I have been doing some research on Avascular Necrosis and I see one cause is the over use of sterioids. What I want to know is how much is to much? Several procedures where done to help what could be a frozen shoulder or an impingementdue to an accident. Now we have a diagnosis of avascular necrosis of the left hip. In a years time 220mg. of Depo-Medrol was used. Is this enough to cause avascular necrosis?
