  • allergy
  • Early surgical fixation initially was complicated by many obstacles, such as infection, poorly conceived implants and techniques, metal allergy, and a limited understanding of the biology and mechanics of fracture healing. (medscape.com)
  • provide
  • The key to developing mechanically effective fracture fixation systems based on absorbable devices is to provide an adequate level of fixation strength and stiffness for a time frame that exceeds that expected for fracture healing. (astm.org)
  • conditions
  • 1.3 This specification establishes standard test methods to consistently measure performance-related mechanical characteristics of absorbable devices when tested under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, humidity, and testing machine speed. (astm.org)
  • location
  • Before LATERA, nasal valve collapse correction involved harvesting donor cartilage from another location, like the ear or nose, and surgically implanting it in the lateral wall of the nose. (ceenta.com)
  • small
  • The doctor will make a small, puncture-like incision and will slide the implant in using a needle-based delivery system. (ceenta.com)
