Determination of Hounsfield value for CT-based design of custom femoral stems. (1/3521)

Ct and advanced computer-aided design techniques offer the means for designing customised femoral stems. Our aim was to determine the Hounsfield (HU) value of the bone at the corticocancellous interface, as part of the criteria for the design algorithm. We obtained transverse CT images from eight human cadaver femora. The proximal femoral canal was rasped until contact with dense cortical bone was achieved. The femora were cut into several sections corresponding to the slice positions of the CT images. After obtaining a computerised image of the anatomical sections using a scanner, the inner cortical contour was outlined and transferred to the corresponding CT image. The pixels beneath this contour represent the CT density of the bone remaining after surgical rasping. Contours were generated automatically at nine HU levels from 300 to 1100 and the mean distance between the transferred contour and each of the HU-generated contours was computed. The contour generated along the 600-HU pixels was closest to the inner cortical contour of the rasped femur and therefore 600 HU seem to be the CT density of the corticocancellous interface in the proximal part of cadaver femora. Generally, femoral bone with a CT density beyond 600 HU is not removable by conventional reamers. Thus, we recommend the 600 HU threshold as one of several criteria for the design of custom femoral implants from CT data.  (+info)

Hydroxyapatite-coated femoral stems. Histology and histomorphometry around five components retrieved at post mortem. (2/3521)

We performed a histological and histomorphometric examination in five cadaver specimens of the femoral and acetabular components and the associated tissue which had been recovered between 3.3 and 6.2 years after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) using a proximal hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated titanium alloy implant. All had functioned well during the patients' life. All the stems were fixed in the femur and showed osseointegration of both the proximal and distal parts. The amount of residual HA was greatest in the distal metaphyseal sections, indicating that the rate of bone remodelling may be the main factor causing loss of HA. The level of activity of the patient was the only clinical factor which correlated with loss of coating. The percentage of bone-implant osseointegration was almost constant, regardless of the amount of HA residue, periprosthetic bone density or the time of implantation. HA debris was seldom observed and if present did not cause any adverse or inflammatory reaction. Partial debonding did occur in one case as a result of a polyethylene-induced inflammatory reaction.  (+info)

The inadequacy of standard radiographs in detecting flaws in the cement mantle. (3/3521)

Radiological assessment of the cement mantle is used routinely to determine the outcome of total hip replacement. We performed a simulated replacement arthroplasty on cadaver femora and took standard postoperative radiographs. The femora were then sectioned into 7 mm slices starting at the calcar, and high-resolution faxitron radiographs were taken of these sections. Analysis of the faxitron images showed that defects in the cement mantle were observed up to 100 times more frequently than on the standard films. We therefore encourage the search for a better technique in assessing the cement mantle.  (+info)

Level of amputation following failed arterial reconstruction compared to primary amputation--a meta-analysis. (4/3521)

OBJECTIVES: To determine if the level of amputation after failed vascular reconstruction was comparable to the level of amputation after primary amputation. DESIGN AND METHODS: Medline literature search (1975-1996), meta-analysis. RESULTS: The odds ratio of transtibial to transfemoral (TT/TF) amputations was 927/657 = 1.41 (95% confidence limits: 1.278-1.561) in postrevascularisation amputation (PRVA) and 1590/1162 = 1.37 (95% confidence limits: 1.269-1.477) in primary amputation (PA) (p = 0.65). The pooled data show that the number of conversions from transtibial (TT) to transfemoral (TF) amputations due to amputation stump complications were 85/369 (23%) in PRVA against 93/752 (12.4%) in PA (p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: We could not detect any difference in TT/TF ratio between PRVA and PA. However, the risk of conversion i.e. reamputation to a higher level is higher after PRVA compared to PA. The chance of having a successful transtibial amputation is approximately 58% for postrevascularisation amputation as well as for primary amputations. An aggressive approach towards vascular reconstruction seems justified.  (+info)

Can transvaginal fetal biometry be considered a useful tool for early detection of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients? (5/3521)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possibility of an early diagnosis of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients. METHODS: A total of 149 consecutive, uncomplicated singleton pregnancies at 9-13 weeks' amenorrhea, with certain menstrual history and regular cycles, were investigated with transvaginal ultrasound to establish the relationship between femur length and menstrual age, biparietal diameter and crown-rump length, using a polynomial regression model. A further eight patients with previous skeletal dysplasias in a total of 13 pregnancies were evaluated with serial examinations every 2 weeks from 10-11 weeks. RESULTS: A significant correlation between femur length and crown-rump length and biparietal diameter was found, whereas none was observed between femur length and menstrual age. Of the five cases with skeletal dysplasias, only two (one with recurrent osteogenesis imperfecta and one with recurrent achondrogenesis) were diagnosed in the first trimester. CONCLUSIONS: An early evaluation of fetal morphology in conjunction with the use of biometric charts of femur length against crown-rump length and femur length against biparietal diameter may be crucial for early diagnosis of severe skeletal dysplasias. By contrast, in less severe cases, biometric evaluation appears to be of no value for diagnosis.  (+info)

Diacerhein treatment reduces the severity of osteoarthritis in the canine cruciate-deficiency model of osteoarthritis. (6/3521)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if diacerhein protects against the early stages of joint damage in a canine model of osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS: OA was induced in 20 adult mongrel dogs by transection of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee. Beginning the day after surgery, dogs in the active treatment group were dosed twice a day with capsules of diacerhein, providing a total daily dose of 40 mg/kg, for 32 weeks. Dogs in the control group received placebo capsules on the same schedule. Pathology in the unstable knee was assessed arthroscopically 16 weeks after surgery and by direct observation when the dogs were killed 32 weeks after surgery. The severity of gross joint pathology was recorded, and samples of the medial femoral condyle cartilage and the synovial tissue adjacent to the central portion of the medial meniscus were collected for histologic evaluation. Water content and uronic acid concentration of the articular cartilage from the femoral condyle were determined, and collagenolytic activity in extracts of cartilage pooled from the medial and lateral tibial plateaus was assayed against 14C-labeled collagen fibers. RESULTS: Diacerhein treatment slowed the progression of OA, as measured by grading of gross changes in the unstable knee at arthroscopy 16 weeks after cruciate ligament transection (P = 0.04) and at the time the animals were killed, 32 weeks after surgery (P = 0.05). However, 32 weeks after ACL transection, the mean proteoglycan concentration and water content of the OA cartilage and the level of collagenolytic activity in extracts of the cartilage were not significantly different in the diacerhein treatment group than in the placebo treatment group. CONCLUSION: Diacerhein treatment significantly reduced the severity of morphologic changes of OA compared with placebo. These findings support the view that diacerhein may be a disease-modifying drug for OA.  (+info)

Nocardia osteomyelitis in a pachymeningitis patient: an example of a difficult case to treat with antimicrobial agents. (7/3521)

Antimicrobial agents played a miraculous role in the treatment of bacterial infections until resistant bacteria became widespread. Besides antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, many factors can influence the cure of infection. Nocardia infection may be a good example which is difficult to cure with antimicrobial agents alone. A 66-year-old man developed soft tissue infection of the right buttock and thigh. He was given prednisolone and azathioprine for pachymeningitis 3 months prior to admission. Despite surgical and antimicrobial treatment (sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim), the infection spread to the femur and osteomyelitis developed. The case showed that treatment of bacterial infection is not always as successful as was once thought because recent isolates of bacteria are more often resistant to various antimicrobial agents, intracellular parasites are difficult to eliminate even with the active drug in vitro, and infections in some sites such as bone are refractory to treatment especially when the patient is in a compromised state. In conclusion, for the treatment of infections, clinicians need to rely on laboratory tests more than before and have to consider the influence of various host factors.  (+info)

Quantitative histology of the human growth plate. (8/3521)

This paper describes a study in the human femur of the relationship between cell division in growth cartilage and overall bone growth. Growth rates for the distal femur from birth to eighteen years were determined from serial radiographs available from the Harpenden Growth Study; An average of 1-4 cm/year was found for the ages of five to eight years. The development of the growth plate is illustrated in a series of photomicrographs of femur sections. These sections were also used for quantitative histology; The length of the proliferation zone was estimated from cell counts to be twenty-four cells per column. On the basis of this value and the measured growth rate, an approximate mean cycle time of twenty days was found for the proliferating cells of the human growth plate. Since the corresponding cycle time is two days for rodent growth plates, which also have a different structure, it is unwise to extrapolate the findings in this tissue from mouse to man.  (+info)

N2 - Strain rate dependence of the mechanical response of hard tissues has led to a keen interest in their dynamic properties. The current study attempts to understand the high strain rate characteristics of rabbit femur bones. The testing was conducted using a split-Hopkinson pressure bar equipped with a high speed imaging system to capture the fracture patterns. The bones were also characterized under quasi-static compression to enable comparison with the high strain rate results. The quasi-static compressive moduli of the epiphyseal and diaphyseal regions were measured to be in the range of 2-3 and 5-7. GPa, respectively. Under high strain rate loading conditions the modulus is observed to increase with strain rate and attains values as high as 15. GPa for epiphyseal and 30. GPa for diaphyseal regions of the ...
The medullary cavity (medulla, innermost part) is the central cavity of bone shafts where red bone marrow and/or yellow bone marrow (adipose tissue) is stored; hence, the medullary cavity is also known as the marrow cavity. Located in the main shaft of a long bone (diaphysis) (consisting mostly of compact bone), the medullary cavity has walls composed of spongy bone (cancellous bone) and is lined with a thin, vascular membrane (endosteum). However, the medullary cavity is the area inside any bone (long, flat, etc.) that holds the bone marrow. This area is involved in the formation of red blood cells and white blood cells, and the calcium supply for bird eggshells. Intramedullary is a medical term meaning the inside of a bone. Examples include intramedullary rods used to treat bone fractures in orthopedic surgery and intramedullary tumors occurring in some forms of cancer or benign tumors such as an enchondroma.

Purpose The aetiology of femoral trochlear dysplasia is unknown. The aim of this prospective cohort study was to describe trochlear development in a newborn population during the first six years of life. Methods In an earlier study, the femoral trochlea was examined by ultrasound in 174 newborns. A dysplastic trochlea was defined with a sulcus angle (SA) above 159°. Two groups were defined, one group of 15 knees with SA , 159° (dysplastic group), and one group of 101 knees with SA , 159° (non-dysplastic group). In the present follow-up study, the children were further examined at six, 18 and 72 months. Results There was a statistically significant difference in the SA between the dysplastic and the non-dysplastic group at all follow-ups (p , 0.001). A small but statistically significant change in the SA between 0 to 72 months was detected for the dysplastic knees (p = 0.032) and for the controls (p , 0.001). Conclusion Only minor changes in the anatomy of the femoral trochlea from newborn to ...

The femur (/ˈfiːmər/, pl. femurs or femora /ˈfɛmərə, ˈfɛmrə/) or thigh bone, is the most proximal (closest to the hip joint) bone of the leg in tetrapod vertebrates capable of walking or jumping, such as most land mammals, birds, many reptiles such as lizards, and amphibians such as frogs. In vertebrates with four legs such as dogs and horses, the femur is found only in the hindlimbs. The head of the femur articulates with the acetabulum in the pelvic bone forming the hip joint, while the distal part of the femur articulates with the tibia and kneecap forming the knee joint. By most measures the femur is the strongest bone in the body. The femur is also the longest bone in the human body. The femur is the only bone in the leg. The two femurs converge medially toward the knees, where they articulate with the proximal ends of the tibiae. The angle of convergence of the femora is a major factor in determining the femoral-tibial angle. Human females have wider pelvic bones, causing their ...

The whole set of specimens underwent mechanical compression tests to failure. Associations were searched using correlation tests and multiple regression analysis. ...
The largest bone in the human body is the femur. It can support 30 times the weight of a persons body. Ounce for ounce, thats stronger than steel.. The femur is the large bone between the knee and hip joints. Its size and strength make it a very important base for soft tissue attachment, weight bearing, and bio-mechanical purposes. The femur is a long bone, which means it has a hard outer surface known as compact bone, with a mesh-like interior called cancellous bone, designed to take pressure from multiple angles.. It is also useful to note that the cancellous bone contains bone marrow. The femur helps to make up two joints distally, articulating with the tibia and the patella, creating the tibiofemoral and patellofemoral joints respectively. Superiorly, the femur slips into the acetabulum of the hip, creating the acetabulofemoral joint.. ...

Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been proposed as a complimentary method to measure bone quality and assess fracture risk. However, manual segmentation of MR images of bone is time-consuming, limiting the use of MRI measurements in the clinical practice. The purpose of this paper is to present an automatic proximal femur segmentation method that is based on deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs). This study had institutional review board approval and written informed consent was obtained from all subjects. A dataset of volumetric structural MR images of the proximal femur from 86 subject were manually-segmented by an expert. We performed experiments by training two different CNN architectures with multiple number of initial feature maps and layers, and tested their segmentation performance against the gold standard of manual segmentations using four-fold cross-validation. Automatic segmentation of the proximal femur achieved a high dice similarity score of 0.94$\pm$0.05 with ...

The Proximal end consists of a head, neck, and two trochanters. The head faces superiorward, medialward, and slightly anteriorward. The proximal area of the femur forms the hip joint with the pelvis. There are also two bony ridges connecting the two trochanters.. Head - Connects with the acetabulum of the pelvis to make the hip joint. It has a glossy surface with a depression on the medial position; for the attachment of the ligament of head of the femur.. Neck - Attaches the head of the femur with the shaft. It is cylindrical, projecting in a superior and medial direction - this angle of projection permits for an enhanced range of movement at the hip joint.. Greater trochanter - A projection of bone that starts from the anterior aspect, just parallel to the neck. It is angled superiorly and posteriorly and can be found on both the anterior and posterior sides of the femur ...

PY - 2010/1. Y1 - 2010/1. N2 - Straight femur alignment during dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) acquisition is assumed to help ensure accurate bone mineral density (BMD) measurement. Use of bilateral femur positioners may not result in straight femur alignment. To assess the effect of a bilateral femur positioner on DXA results, we compared a standard fixed-width bilateral femur positioner with an adjustable-width positioner that allowed for straight femur alignment. BMD values obtained from the adjustable-width bilateral femur positioner were highly correlated (R2 = 0.98-0.99) with those obtained using a fixed-width positioner. The mean bias in BMD between the fixed- and adjustable-width positioner was low (-0.001 to +0.006 g/cm2) at all proximal femur regions of interest. In this study, the use ...

Hence, easier, readily available, and safer surgical procedures are warranted. This study evaluated the effects of vascularized small corticocancellous bone grafting for reconstruction of a large segmental rabbit femur defect. Methods A 1.5 cm defect was created in the femurs of 40 New Zealand white rabbits and divided into a control group ( n = 10, bone defect without graft), group A ( n = 10, bone defect filled with morselized autogenous bone), group B ( n = 10, bone defect grafted ...
Medical Clues Include Prior Symptoms, Location Of Thigh Bone Break, And Specific Radiology Findings (Posted by Tom Lamb at DrugInjuryWatch.com) For this medical primer about femur fractures which might be associated with Fosamax as well as the several other bisphosphonate osteoporosis medications available in the U.S. we will start with some basic anatomy taken from a document titled Femur Shaft Fractures (Broken Thighbone), published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS): Your thighbone (femur) is the longest and strongest bone in your body. Because the femur is so strong, it usually takes a lot of force to break it. Car crashes, for example, are the number one cause of femur fractures. The long, straight part of the femur is called the femoral shaft. When there is a break anywhere along this length of bone, it is called a femoral shaft fracture.... Doctors describe fractures to each other using classification systems. Femur fractures are classified depending on: The location of the

Introduction: The aim of this study was to report the surgical management and to discuss the options for fracture fixation in an adult patient with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) who sustained a trochanteric femoral fracture after a simple fall from standing position. Case Report: As a result of multiple fractures during childhood, this adult patient with OI presented with a short stature. The radiographs revealed a displaced, intertrochanteric fracture with subtrochanteric extension of the left femur. The intramedullary canal was narrow, the femur presented with a severe bowing deformity, and the bone quality was poor. The implant of choice was plating using the reversed less invasive stabilisation system-distal femur (LISS-DF) technique. This technique was introduced for the management of subtrochanteric fractures in the elderly with poor bone stock. In addition, a locking plate attached to the LISS-DF allowed for additional screw placement at the apex of the curvature of the femur although the plate
Endoprosthetic replacements of the proximal femur are commonly required to treat destructive metastases with either impending or actual pathological fractures at this site. Modular prostheses provide an off the shelf availability and can be adapted to most reconstructive situations for proximal femoral replacements. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical and functional outcomes following modular tumour prosthesis reconstruction of the proximal femur in 100 consecutive patients with metastatic tumours and to compare them with the published results of patients with modular and custom made endoprosthetic replacements. 100 consecutive patients who underwent modular tumour prosthetic reconstruction of the proximal femur for metastases using the METS system from 2001 to 2007 were studied. The patient, tumour and treatment factors in relation to overall survival, local control, implant survival and complications were analysed. Functional scores were obtained from surviving patients.

Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical technique of obtaining solutions to boundary value problems. The practical application of Finite Element Method is called as Finite Element Analysis (FEA). FEA is the computational tool for performing engineering analysis. Biomechanical analysis involves dealing with the mechanical aspects of the biological systems. FEM techniques can be used to study the engineering analysis of different biological systems. Femur bone is the longest and strongest bone of the human body. It undergoes mostly compressive loading. It exhibits anisotropy, indicating that the strength is different in different directions when a force is applied. It is hyperelastic in nature. It has two anatomical structures namely cortical bone tissue and cancellous bone tissue. The cortical is dense and tightly packed. The cancellous is porous. Cortical section is superior in mechanical properties compared to cancellous section. Cortical and cancellous are formed with collagen fibers. Upon ...

Just like Alex I was doing everything right and still got run over. I was driving down a four lane hwy and going under the speed limit because of a bad intersection ahead and the next thing I knew a big suv turned right in front of me at the last minute. I had time to think to hit the brakes but it wasnt time enough to even leave skid marks on the road. All I did was stiffen up enough that the impact shattered both legs. So my family spent Christmas in ICU with me. Both legs had to have plates and screws. I spent the next two months on my back in a hospital bed in my dining room the carpet was too hard to use the hoyer lift on. I was extremly lucky that I had little pain after the intial soreness, that is until I was told to start putting weight on my legs again. It was unreal how painful it was the first weeks on my feet. I am learning how to walk again and can walk with a cane and sometimes without anything for support now. My problem is the screws inside are rubbing my tendon and it hurts ...
A method is provided for installing a femoral bone plug in a femoral tunnel formed in a femur. The method includes the steps of inserting the femoral bone plug into the femoral tunnel, and installing a transverse pin through the femur generally perpendicular to a longitudinal axis of the femoral tunnel and intersecting the femoral tunnel. The transverse pin engages the femoral bone plug to force the femoral bone plug against a wall of the femoral tunnel to secure the femoral bone plug inside the femoral tunnel and to promote healing and bonding of the femoral bone plug to the femur.
Femur. The femur is the largest, longest and one of the strongest bones in the body. It is the only bone in the thigh, forming the hip joint proximally at its head and the knee joint distally at its condyles. Two additional protuberances are also present near the proximal end, known as the greater and lesser trochanters. The greater trochanter is large and directed backwards and laterally, providing the insertions of a number of gluteal muscles. The lesser trochanter is smaller and found at the base of the femur neck, facing backwards, and is the insertion of the iliopsoas.. Tibia. The tibia is the major weight-bearing bone of the leg. It articulates with the femur proximally through its condyles, the fibula laterally and the talus distally, helping form the ankle joint.. Fibula. The fibula is the smaller bone of the lower leg. It attaches below the lateral condyle of the tibia proximally, and articulates with the tulus distally, forming the lateral part of the ankle joint.. Patella. The patella ...

Few studies have evaluated interradicular anatomy for hard and soft tissue thickness. Because interradicular sites are common regions for mini-implant placement for orthodontic anchorage, the purpose of this study was to provide a guideline to indicate the best location for mini-implants as it relates to the thickness of cortical bone and soft tissue, and to the height of the attached gingival field. CT images from 15 men and 15 women (mean age 27 years, range 23-35 years) were used to evaluate the buccal interradicular cortical bone thickness from and mesial to the central incisor to the 1st molar. To record soft tissue depth at the site of assessment for cortical bone thickness, the mucosa was pierced with a #15 endodontic K-file until the attached rubber stop rested on the mucosa. The height of attached gingiva was measured at the mid-aspect of each tooth using a caliper. There were no significant differences in cortical bone thickness within interradicular sites except for the 2nd ...

0039] In a healthy knee joint, the average thickness of the articular cartilage 102 at the knee joint is about 4 to 5 min (FIG. 8). In other words, there is about 4 to 5 mm of articular cartilage covering the femur, so that the patella articulates about 4 to 5 mm from the trochlear grove of the femur. In the case of unhealthy cartilage, where the replacement device is needed, the unhealthy cartilage is removed and replaced with the replacement device, which has been custom made for the patients femur. To replicate as closely as possible the original kinematics of the patients patello-femoral joint, as illustrated by way of example in FIG. 2 (and further detailed in FIG. 5), the thickness between the back 6 and front 7 surface areas of the replacement device may vary approximately between 2 mm and 6 mm. In other words, the thickness of the custom replacement device may be approximately that of the patients original articular cartilage. To further enhance the interaction between the custom ...
The femur ossifies from five centers. Other than the clavicle, it is the first long bone to begin to ossify. The first center emerges in the middle of the femoral shaft during the seventh embryonic week. This center progresses toward both extremities forming an ossified shaft at birth. The second center to emerge is that of the distal epiphysis. This forms the entire condylar end of the femur, first appearing during the ninth fetal month. This center is the last to fuse with the diaphysis. It fuses during the sixteenth year in females and the eighteenth year in males. The growth plate of this epiphysis crosses through the adductor tubercle, the site of attachment for the adductor magnus muscle. A third center begins to ossify in the head of the femur. This ossification is initiated at the end of the first postnatal year. The ossification center forms a cap-like epiphysis with the neck. It fuses with the neck between the fourteenth and seventeenth year, fusing earlier in females. The fourth ...

Shaw v. Kennedy International, Inc., No. 2:11-cv-02552-JPM (W.D. Tenn. 2012). We had the privilege of representing a housewife who suffered a life-long injury when a plastic stool broke and caused her to fall. She had purchased a plastic folding stool from TJ Max and has used it one or two times before her fall. While getting ready for church on Sunday, she stood on the stool to examine her dress in her bathroom mirror when, without warning, the stool shattered; she fell in an odd position, breaking her right femur in nine different places. Despite multiple surgeries and extensive physical therapy, our client was left with a permanent limp.. We were retained and had the stool examined by Dr. Duane Priddy, a preeminent plastics expert recognized throughout the nation, He determined that the stool was made in China and was manufactured from used plastic that had dirt particles in it; these particles cause the plastic to be weak and not suited for use as a stool.

I am back I have Osteomyelitis in my right femur bone. I also have metal plates, rods and screws there. They have to be removed. My blood work is not good so that the orthopedic doctor wants the surgery to be done as soon as possible. I will be in the hospital for one week and then going to rehab. The doctor feels that this infection is coming from my gallbladder surgery. The surgeon pulled the drain too soon and caused me to have the infection which put me back in the hospital for one week.
Anyway, there was even one time at Anonas LRT2 station, it was raining and the floors were wet and somewhat muddy. A guard asked me to transfer coach from the Senior Citizens + PWDs coach to a regular one. He asked me if Mom and I were together. I said yes--but still he asked me to leave the first coach and so I did! Albeit with a tinge if hesitation. Mom left riding the train on the first coach but I was left at Anonas Station. I had to wait for three trains (they were jampacked with commuters) before I was able to finally ride the train. At the time, Mom was still recuperating from an operation on partial hip prosthesis. I shouldnt have left my mom. I couldnt keep still, what if my Mom tripped or fell, she shouldnt experience those anymore because of her condition (she had fractured her right femur bone due to an accident and now uses an artificial prosthesis.) I wanted to slap the arrogant security guard at the Anonas LRT2 station for making me leave my Mom. But I was able to control my ...

Article Type: Research Article Abstract: The tissue response of subchondral bone to a biodegradable fixation device manufactured in the shape of a screw and made of polylactide with a hydroxyapatite buffer were implanted through the articular surface of the intercondylar portion of the distal rabbit femur. One screw was implanted per animal. The screws had a core diameter of 3.2 mm and an outer diameter of 4.5 mm. At insertion, the implants were cut flush with the articular surface. After follow‐up times of 8 and 16 weeks, the specimens were examined radiographically and histomorphometrically. The intact contralateral femur served as a control for comparison. Only …minimal signs of degradation of the polymer could be seen in the histologic specimens. These implant degradation sites were commonly areas of new bone formation adjacent to the screw implant. A brim of repair tissue was formed at the ...

Hi all It has put things a bit into perspective for me reading of others troubles. Two years ago I broke right femur, leading to what is called a dynamic hip screw- metal plate on to bone, with screws into existing hip. Took some time to get mobile and driving. DH is 92 and frail, so not a lot of help sadly. Last Mon. I fell again, on the snowy ground outside door putting stuff into bin, and could not get up. Eventually shuffled into house on behind! Much pain, worry about femur. Next day, phone to GP sent me to Lincoln hospital by ambulance with DH who should not be alone. Long day, but X-ray showed no further bone or plate problem, thank heavens. Now struggling round on frame again, but coping with basics, and muscles are beginning to heal up. DD came to pick us up - she lives over 3 hours away, and stayed a couple of nights. As they rightly say, old age is not for cissies! Anyway, got round to putting a bit of makeup on today for delivery of rise and recline chair (for him, but also me at ...
