  • infection
  • Still, general anaesthetics and surgical interventions were required, which ultimately increased the risk of infection and the loss of prosthesis [ 3 ], so that noninvasively expandable prostheses are now considered to be the gold standard in paediatric limb-salvage surgery [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • type
  • Total arch replacement combined with stented elephant trunk implantation: a new "standard" therapy for type a dissection involving repair of the aortic arch? (labome.org)
  • years
  • Over the past few years, visual prostheses (namely, Argus II retinal implant) and gene therapy have obtained FDA approval in treating blindness resulting from retinitis pigmentosa. (frontiersin.org)
  • The minimum median patient age was 6.5 years, and 3-5 cm of predicted growth deficit was the minimum before implanting a growing prosthesis. (hindawi.com)
  • The first three survey questions asked about participants' personal experience with expandable prostheses, including years in practice, previous experience in orthopaedic oncology, and experience with the implantation of growing prostheses over the last three years. (hindawi.com)
  • Mitral valve (MV) replacement with a 29 mm Bjork-Shiley tilting disc prosthesis had been performed 23 years earlier. (bmj.com)
  • introduction
  • On radial compaction, the prosthesis has a low profile, allowing introduction into the body with a deployment instrument of low calibre. (google.com)
  • size
  • Using this apparatus, the surgeon can easily and quickly check the antero-posterior size of the prosthesis in order to reduce the risks of subsequent dislocations of the kneecap fitted with the prosthesis. (google.com)
  • shape
  • One or more, outwardly biased, flexible curvilinear members with good shape-memory, symmetrically attached to the leading end of the prosthesis help unroll the prosthesis during deployment. (google.com)
  • least
  • To implant a growing prosthesis, at least 3-4 cm of growth has to be expected for the child until skeletal maturity [ 7 - 9 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • length
  • Conversely, wearing the prosthesis increased the perceived length of the stump and extended the PPS boundaries so as to include the prosthetic hand, such that the prosthesis partially replaced the missing limb. (epfl.ch)
