  • Screws
  • It was alleged that they were negligent in failing to detect the distortion and breaking of screws in the prosthesis, and the loosening of certain components. (aclsolicitors.ie)
  • Implant Failure
  • It was noted that the risk of implant failure was significantly higher in patients younger than 18 years, but there is significant reason to use this methodology of treatment in those older. (wikipedia.org)
  • calcification
  • Mode of failures were cuspal tear without calcification in three valves and massive calcifications in the remaining bioprostheses. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Calcification of either tissue leads to deterioration and, ultimately, failure causing poor quality of life and decreased overall life expectancy in patients. (frontiersin.org)
  • valves
  • A drawback of this method is that it can frequently result in a "two-valve" diseased heart, as almost all autografts are impaired by progressive dilatation in the long term, and the pulmonary valve prosthesis, often a conventional cryopreserved homograft, is subject to the same rate of degeneration as all biological valves. (wikipedia.org)
  • joint
  • The situation is dissimilar to that seen in human athletes where overextension of the joint stretches the CrCL to failure, and replacement of the ligament with a fascial prosthesis has a good prognosis for return to full function. (wikipedia.org)
  • The joint is not stable, however, when it is physically manipulated by attempting to move the tibia cranially.This contrasts with previous methods of CrCL repair which aimed to provide stability to the joint by replacing the ligament either with a fascial graft within the joint, or using a prosthesis made of nylon placed externally from the lateral fabella to a hole drilled in the tibial crest. (wikipedia.org)
  • Design
  • In cases like this, any element of the prosthesis has failed shortly after installation, it is like that there was some deficiency in the installation, design, and / or manufacture of the implant or its components. (theexpertinstitute.com)
  • acute
  • Haemolytic-uremic syndrome or HUS is haemolytic anaemia, acute kidney failure (uraemia), and thrombocytopenia. (wikipedia.org)
  • rate
  • Certain cements have a notably higher rate of failure than others, and if used on this patient it may be the likely cause of his pain and immobility. (theexpertinstitute.com)
  • leads
  • The force from the blood flow over the high pressure gradient from the prosthesis leads to fragmentation of red cells, and schistocyte formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • months
  • He lost his voice for a period before regaining it after several months of home recuperation with the aid of a voice prosthesis that was inserted into a neck valve. (wikipedia.org)
