Abstract
  Background: The Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 gene 4G/5G (PAI-1 4G/5G) polymorphism has been suggestedto be associated with osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) susceptibility; however, the results are conflicting andinconclusive. We have carried out a comprehensive meta-analysis to derive a ...  Read More
