Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale using the Amplatzer septal occluder to prevent recurrence of neurological decompression illness in divers. (1/1898)

OBJECTIVE: Large flap valve patent foramens may cause paradoxical thromboembolism and neurological decompression illness in divers. The ability of a self expanding Nitinol wire mesh device (Amplatzer septal occluder) to produce complete closure of the patent foramen ovale was assessed. PATIENTS: Seven adults, aged 18-60 years, who had experienced neurological decompression illness related to diving. Six appeared to have a normal atrial septum on transthoracic echocardiography, while one was found to have an aneurysm of the interatrial septum. METHODS: Right atrial angiography was performed to delineate the morphology of the right to left shunt. The defects were sized bidirectionally with a precalibrated balloon filled with dilute contrast. The largest balloon diameter that could be repeatedly passed across the septum was used to select the occlusion device diameter. Devices were introduced through 7 F long sheaths. All patients underwent transthoracic contrast echocardiography one month after the implant. RESULTS: Device placement was successful in all patients. Device sizes ranged from 9-14 mm. The patient with an aneurysm of the interatrial septum had three defects, which were closed with two devices. Right atrial angiography showed complete immediate closure in all patients. Median (range) fluoroscopy time was 13.7 (6-35) minutes. Follow up contrast echocardiography showed no right to left shunting in six of seven patients and the passage of a few bubbles in one patient. All patients have been allowed to return to diving. CONCLUSION: The Amplatzer septal occluder can close the large flap valve patent foramen ovale in divers who have experienced neurological decompression illness. Interatrial septal aneurysms with multiple defects may require more than one device.  (+info)

Transcatheter occlusion of a post-Fontan residual hepatic vein to pulmonary venous atrium communication using the Amplatzer septal occluder. (2/1898)

A residual hepatic vein to left atrial communication may result in progressive cyanosis after the Fontan procedure. This problem has usually been treated surgically by ligation or re-inclusion of the residual hepatic vein in the Fontan circulation. Previous attempts at transcatheter closure of such veins have been unsuccessful. An Amplatzer septal occluder was successfully used for transcatheter closure of a post-Fontan hepatic vein to pulmonary venous atrium fistula in an 8 year old boy.  (+info)

Follow-up results of transvenous occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus with the buttoned device. (3/1898)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this presentation is to document results of buttoned device (BD) occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a large number of patients with particular emphasis on long-term follow-up in an attempt to provide evidence for feasibility, safety and effectiveness of this method of PDA closure. BACKGROUND: Immediate and short-term results of BD occlusion of PDA have been documented in a limited number of children. METHODS: During a six-year period ending August 1996, transcatheter BD closure of PDA was attempted in 284 patients, ages 0.3 to 92 years (median 7) under a protocol approved by the local institutional review boards and FDA with an investigational device exemption in U.S. cases. RESULTS: The PDAs measured 1 to 15 mm (median 4) at the narrowest diameter; 20 were larger than 8 mm and 10 larger than 10 mm. They were occluded with devices measuring from 15 to 35 mm delivered via 7F (N = 140) or 8F (N = 144) sheaths. Successful implantation of the device was accomplished in 278 (98%) of 284 patients. The Qp:Qs decreased from 1.8+/-0.6 (mean+/-SD) to 1.09+/-0.19 (p < 0.001). Effective occlusion defined as no (N = 167 [60%]) or trivial (N = 79 [28%]) residual shunt was achieved in 246 (88%) patients. All types of PDAs, irrespective of the shape (conical, tubular or short), size (small or large) or length (short or long) of the PDA and previously implanted Rashkind devices, could be occluded. Follow-up data, 1 to 60 months (median 24) after device implantation, were available in 234 (84%) patients. Seven (3%) patients required reintervention to treat residual shunt with (N = 2) or without (N = 5) hemolysis. Actuarial reintervention-free rates were 95% at 1 and 5 years. There was gradual reduction of actuarial residual shunts and were 40%, 28%, 21%, 14%, 11%, 10%, 6% and 0% respectively at 1 day, 1, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months after device implantation. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop in 10 additional patients produced immediate and complete occlusion of PDA. CONCLUSIONS: This large multiinstitutional experience confirms the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of buttoned device closure of PDAs. All types of PDAs irrespective of the shape, length and diameter can be effectively occluded. Incorporation of folding plug over the button loop produces complete PDA occlusion at the time of device implantation.  (+info)

Transcatheter closure of a mid-muscular ventricular septal defect with an amplatzer VSD occluder device. (4/1898)

A 5 year old girl with a haemodynamically significant mid-muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD) had successful transcatheter closure using the Amplatzer VSD occluder. This device passes through a small diameter sheath and can be easily retrieved or repositioned. These properties may make it a suitable device for closure of large mid-muscular defects in small children.  (+info)

Characteristics of an extended internal fixation system for polysegmental transpedicular reduction and stabilization of the thoracic, lumbar, and lumbosacral spine. (5/1898)

The Kluger internal fixator, with its artificial fulcrum outside the operative site, had to be extended for multisegmental use. Three different prototypes, called Central Bar (CB), Double Bar I (DB I) and Double Bar II (DB II) were designed, which were fully compatible with the existing reduction system. To evaluate the ability of these newly developed systems to provide primary stability in a destabilized spine, their stiffness characteristics and stabilizing effects were investigated in multidirectional biomechanical stability tests and compared with those of the clinically well-known Cotrel-Dubousset (CD) system. The investigations were performed on a spine tester using freshly prepared calf spines. The model tested was that of an intact straight spine followed by a defined three-column lesion simulating the most destabilizing type of injury. Pure moments of up to 7.5 Nm were continuously applied to the top of each specimen in flexion/extension, left/right axial rotation, and left/right lateral bending. Segmental motion was measured using a three-dimensional goniometric linkage system. Range of motion and stiffness within the neutral zone were calculated from obtained load-displacement curves. The DB II attained 112.5% (P = 0.26) of the absolute stiffness of the CD system in flexion and enhanced its stability in extension by up to 144.3% (P = 0.004). In axial rotation of the completely destabilized spine, this system achieved 183.3% of the stiffness of the CD system (P < 0.001), and in lateral bending no motion was measured in the most injured specimens stabilized by the DB II. The DB I, which was the first to be designed and was considered to provide high biomechanical stability, did not attain the stiffness standard set by the CD system in either flexion/extension or axial rotation of the most injured spine. The study confirms that it is worthwhile to evaluate in vitro the biomechanical properties of a newly developed implant before its use in patients, in order to refine weak construction points and help to reduce device-related complications and to better evaluate its efficacy in stabilizing the spine.  (+info)

Basal cell carcinoma is generally regarded as a relatively indolent tumor easily controlled with local therapy. When neglected or inadequately treated this tumor can become locally aggressive and in rare circumstances metastasize. This report documents a case of basal cell carcinoma metastatic to the lung that resulted in rapidly progressive respiratory failure and death.  (+info)

Deep sclerectomy with collagen implant: medium term results. (7/1898)

AIMS: To study prospectively the success rate and complications of deep sclerectomy with collagen implant (DSCI), a new non-penetrating filtration procedure. METHODS: Non-randomised prospective trial involving consecutive patients. 100 eyes of 100 patients with medically uncontrolled primary and secondary open angle glaucoma. A superficial scleral flap was raised and a deep sclerectomy was performed in the scleral bed. Schlemm's canal was opened and dissection of the cornea was performed up to Descemet's membrane, at which point aqueous percolated through the remaining trabeculo-Descemet's membrane. A collagen implant was sutured radially in the scleral bed. Visual acuity, intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements, and slit lamp examinations were performed before surgery and after surgery at 1 and 7 days, and 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 30, and 36 months. RESULTS: The mean follow up period was 17.8 (SD 8.7) months. The mean preoperative IOP was 27.8 (8.6) mm Hg; the mean postoperative IOP was 5.7 (4.0) at day 1, 11.2 (4.6) at month 1, 14.0 (3.5) at month 12, and 13.0 (3.8) at month 36. Complete success rate, defined as an IOP lower than 21 mm Hg without medication, was 44.6% at 36 months. Qualified success rate, defined as an IOP lower than 21 mm Hg with medication, was 97.7% at 36 months. Early postoperative complications included hyphaema in seven patients, would leak in 10 patients, and subtle choroidal detachment in 11 patients. Goniopuncture was performed in 41 of the patients, and 5-fluorouracil injections were made in 23 patients; cataract progression occurred in seven patients. When comparing the different types of open angle glaucoma, no difference was found in terms of reduction in IOP, number of patients requiring antiglaucoma medications, or success rate. CONCLUSIONS: Deep sclerectomy with collagen implant appears to provide reasonable control of IOP at medium term follow up, with few immediate postoperative complications.  (+info)

Permanent implantation of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene is safe for pelvic surgery. United States Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene Reproductive Surgery Study Group. (8/1898)

Clinical trials have shown the expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane to be a highly effective adhesion barrier in gynaecological reconstructive surgery, but the material has not gained wide acceptance because of uncertainty about long-term safety. We conducted a prospective, observational multicentre study to determine if permanent implantation of the ePTFE membrane in the pelvis caused any adverse effects. The subjects were 146 women in whom the membrane was implanted permanently during peritoneal reconstruction in 1991-1996. Postoperatively, patients were examined at regular intervals. The mean postoperative observation time was 3.5 years. No long-term complications occurred. There were 10 births by Caesarean section and 12 by vaginal delivery. All of the pregnancies before these 22 births were uneventful, including 10 in which the women had uterine implantation sites. There were two ectopic pregnancies and three spontaneous abortions. Since the primary purpose of the study was to evaluate the long-term safety of ePTFE, early second-look laparoscopy was not performed routinely. Nevertheless, 24 women had a subsequent operation. Adhesions were present at 8/21 of the membrane sites in these women, a significant decrease compared with adhesions at 17/21 sites during the initial procedure (P = 0.005). This large, multicentre study confirmed the long-term safety of the ePTFE membrane in pelvic reconstruction. Removal of the barrier is not necessary.  (+info)

AU - Yamazaki, Keita. AU - Chiba, Akihiko. AU - Yamamoto, Tom. PY - 2009/10/1. Y1 - 2009/10/1. N2 - Metallic implants composed of paramagnetic materials, such as stainless steel (SUS), Ti, Co-Cr-Mo alloy, etc., are widely used as artificial hip joints or aneurysm clips. When the metallic implant is placed in a uniform magnetic field of a magnetic resonance scanner, a magnetic disturbance is created due to its magnetization. This magnetic disturbance distorts the image of the metallic implant and body tissues in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In order to overcome this problem, a method of coating the metallic implant with diamagnetic material has been proposed as the magnetic disturbance created by the metallic implant can be removed by the cancellation of the respective magnetizations of the ...

Second thing: A front skirt block would have a waist dart. Why? Because skirt blocks are the lower halves of full body blocks/slopers. Observe: this is my basic full body block/sloper below. The lower part against the yellow background is the skirt block/sloper. Notice that the side of the skirt block falls vertically from the hip to the hem (typical of blocks, as we said in the earlier para) and doesnt slant out (more typical of patterns). Note also that there is practically no difference between my waist and hip dimension, which makes my skirt block sorta rectangular. Not everybodys skirt block is rectangular. Mine is, simply because my waist isnt the hourglass-neck thing it was before I had kids. ...

On review of admissions over a 12-month period, we noted a significant number of women presenting with gypsy skirt burns. We describe all six cases to highlight the unique distribution of the wounds and the circumstances in which the accidents occurred. Four skirts were ignited by open fire heaters: two skirts ignited whilst the women were standing nearby, distracted with a telephone conversation; one brushed over the flame as she was walking past the heater; other whilst dancing in the lounge. One skirt was ignited by decorative candles placed on the floor during a social gathering. Another skirt was set alight by cigarette ember, whilst smoking in the toilet. Percentage surface area burned, estimated according to the rule of nines, showed that gypsy skirt burns were significant ranging from 7 to 14% total body surface area (TBSA) and averaging 9% TBSA. Two patients required allogenic split-skin grafts. Common sense care with proximity to naked flame is all that is needed to prevent this ...

All the kiddos decided they wanted to be a character from Wizard of Oz. Well, except for Oliver. 3 month old babies dont really object to much, so were saying he voted YES! ;) I think Olivers is my very favorite though….mostly because it cracks me up! :). But Ellis costume (shes my 7 year old), needs a little something to make the dress nice and poofy. (Im sure that pretty much gives it away, unless youve never seen Wizard of Oz, but I wont be sharing it until Monday. Ooooh, its a pretty one! :) ) To puff that dress right out, I made her an old school Hoop Skirt.. Why a hoop skirt and not a pettiskirt? Or a tulle skirt? Well, first of all, a hoop skirt isnt as hot or stuffy. Also, it doesnt require as much fabric or supplies……so it ends up being a bit cheaper. Also, when you want a skirt that goes all the way down to the floor, a pettiskirt doesnt round out and tends to only fluff out the bottom of the skirt. A pettiskirt and tulle also flatten out over time…..and lose a ...
Purpose: To evaluate the preoperative indications, postoperative complications, retention rate and surgical outcomes of patients with Boston Type I (formerly Dohlman type I) Keratoprosthesis in an international center.. Methods: An observational and retrospective study was performed with review of the medical records of patients who underwent Boston Type 1 Keratoprosthesis (KPro) implantation at Instituto de Oftalmología Conde de Valenciana (an ophthalmologic reference center) in Mexico City, Mexico. The variables analyzed included surgical indication, initial and final visual acuity, previous keratoplasties, postoperative complications and retention rate.. Results: 22 eyes of 21 patients with a median age of 49.5 years (range 24 - 90 years), median follow-up after keratoprostheses of 14 months (range 3 to 124 months). Preoperative visual acuity was worst than 20/100 in all cases. Indications for surgery included: corneal dystrophies in 4 patients (19.0%), ocular burns (2 patients, 9.5%), ...
The liner is actually really comfy. Its comparable to a boy short type underwear, just a little longer. And it has side snaps on the top to secure it to the skirt if you like.. I love the feel and the look of the skirt. Like the other items, very durable under all the riding. On the bike I didnt feel like the skirt made it difficult to pedal and it never got in the way. I did feel sometimes the need to pull down the bike short. That may be partially because the skirt and liner runs a little on the shorter side. There is also barely any bike padding, which I really didnt mind because there were worn for cruising around town or my shorter commutes to work. I dont care for the diaper feeling for my shorter rides.. The only drawback with this skirt was probably the length, as I dont consider myself a modest mouse but I dont care for gawks and stares either. And you will get both with this skirt. I even managed a few dirty looks from other gals while out at stores. And I wanted to say, But ...

MEDICAL IMPLANTS are being used in every organ of the human body. Ideally, medical implants must have biomechanical properties comparable to those of autogenous tissues without any adverse effects. In each anatomic site, studies of the long-term effects of medical implants must be undertaken to determine accurately the safety and performance of the implants. Today, implant surgery has become an interdisciplinary undertaking involving a number of skilled and gifted specialists. For example, successful cochlear implants will involve audiologists, audiological physicians, speech and language therapists, otolaryngologists, nurses, neuro-otologists, teachers of the deaf, hearing therapists, cochlear implant manufacturers, and others involved with hearing-impaired and deaf individuals. A similar list of specialists can be identified for each implant site, from dentistry to cardiovascular surgery. Consequently, scholarly work from all disciplines involved in implants is welcome.

The resorption of a medical implant can be controlled with the use of particles embedded in a resorbable bulk material forming the implant or portion thereof. The implant can be removed from a body of a mammal by natural biological mechanisms after use. The resorption of the implant can involve swelling and/or hydrolyzing of the particles within the implant upon contact with a body fluid such that porosity and flow of fluid within the bulk material of the implant is increased. Resorption of the implant may also involve the use of particles with magnetic properties embedded within the implant such that an applied magnetic field causes the particles to vibrate within the bulk material thereby increasing the porosity and thus the flow of fluid, hence facilitating resorption of the implant. The resorption rate of the implant can be controlled by modulating swelling, hydrolysis, or movement of the embedded particles.

Since the dawn of the 18th century, efforts to develop an ideal keratoprosthesis (KPro) have not yielded the dream KPro yet, but the journey to such an invention has given us a few notable devices and valuable experience with a number of biomaterials. The invention of a KPro started with a piece of silver-rimmed glass proposed by Pellier de Quengsy.1 We now have the latest iteration of Boston Type 1 KPro with a porous titanium back plate.2 Although the Pintucci KPro (Dacron mesh skirt and PMMA optic) and the AlphaCor (hydrogel matrix) were in clinical use for a good length of time, they failed to retain over the long term.1 We learnt that bio-integration is essential for the skirt and bio-inertness for the optic. Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) has largely solved the search for a stable and durable optic though the search for an ideal skirt material is still ethereal.. As we speak, the Boston type-1 KPro and the osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP) have emerged as the most sustainable devices. ...

  • Modern dentistry can help with implant supported dentures. (
  • Dentures can also be referred to an oral prosthesis since it is worn in the mouth for the same reasons but they are not attached to dental implants but instead are held into place by teeth or by other natural or self-applicable means (intraoral muscles, suction, denture adhesive, etc. (
  • An implant-supported removable denture is a dental prosthesis retained by two or more dental implants. (
  • With this treatment, minimal implant posts are strategically placed throughout the arch to support your denture. (
  • Regenerating patient's own bones would be like giving her an original jaw, thus in future she can fix permanent prosthesis (denture)", said Dr. Vaidya. (
  • An artificial crown, denture or bridge is subsequently connected to the implants. (
  • A denture retained with implants will require between four and six implants in the jaw. (
  • 1],[2] Conventionally, this is undertaken either with immediate removable partial denture or immediate implant placement with nonfunctional loading. (
  • It enhances the retention of complete removable mandibular prostheses.In this work, a clinical illustration of a similar case will be treated with a complete mandibular denture using these two therapeutic solutions combined. (
  • The outcome variable was desire for re-implantation or use of other prosthetic methods after implant removal. (
  • Conclusions: Re-implantation of prostheses after the removal of dental implants was desired by patients who were younger, had implants placed in the root form, and had implants removed due to prosthetic-related complications. (
  • Disclosed is a method of producing implantable prosthetic devices, e.g., tubular vascular prostheses having a substantially non-thrombogenic inside surface and a biocompatible outside surface. (
  • It allows an optimal prosthetic integration in the functional corridor of this prosthesis. (
  • The growth of this market is driven by the growth in the geriatric population and corresponding age-related dental diseases, rising prevalence of tooth decay and periodontal diseases in the overall population across the globe, increasing willingness to adopt dental cosmetic surgery, and the growing number of implant placing dentists. (
  • More often, though, surgery to place abutments is done after the jawbone has fused to the implants. (
  • According to FDA recommendations, asymptomatic patients with silicone gel implants should undergo their first ultrasonogram or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan to screen for rupture 5-6 years after surgery, with screening repeated every 2-3 years. (
  • How is the process when a patient receives such a prosthesis - from surgery to use? (
  • In most patients it takes about six months from the time of surgery to the final application, in those with an existing implant a little less. (
  • The placement of penile implants requires surgery. (
  • Before choosing penile implants, make sure you understand what surgery involves, including possible risks, complications and follow-up care. (
  • Penile implants also won't make your penis any larger than it is at the time of surgery. (
  • Surgery is necessary to repair or replace a broken implant, but a broken device can be left in place if you don't want another surgery. (
  • Infections after penile implant surgery typically occur within the first three months of surgery. (
  • Surgery to remove the implant often is necessary to treat an infection. (
  • Your provider may also try to determine whether there's a reason that penile implant surgery is likely to cause complications. (
  • The first ever mandible (lower jaw) implant surgery through autologous regeneration carried out by Dr. Shushrut Vaidya, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, took place today at MGM Hospital in Navi Mumbai. (
  • If traveling abroad for dental implant surgery consult us for affordable options. (

  • The process of restoring Weldon's teeth began by determining what the final prosthesis would look like. (
  • An implant oral prosthesis is any component that is attached (whether it's fixed or non-fixed) to the dental implant or multiple implants to mimic the function and appearance of the dentition or teeth. (
  • Implant supported dentures can help you restore the use of your teeth, making it easier to talk, eat, and smile with confidence. (
  • A prosthesis on hooks is used in cases when it is not possible to take care of the dental arch in the lateral and/or anterior segment with a fixed replacement on the teeth or implants. (
  • Made of resin or with a metal frame, the removable prosthesis can replace one or more missing teeth. (
  • Transitional prostheses play an important role in replacing missing teeth during implant therapy, up to the point when the implants are ready to be restored. (
  • While dental implants certainly provide a more forward-thinking restoration, the cost of replacing multiple teeth with singular implants may not be possible for every smile. (
  • As a combination treatment, hybrid dental implants offer the stability and health benefits of dental implants with the coverage and ease of dentures, creating the ideal teeth replacement solution. (
  • We recommend hybrid dental implants for patients who are missing most if not all the teeth in an arch. (
  • If you have one or more missing teeth, your dentist may recommend dental implants. (
  • To custom-fit the prosthesis, your restorative dentist will make impressions (molds) of your jaws, teeth, and abutments. (
  • Grinding and clenching, known as Bruxism, can loosen or wear down teeth and could lead to a possible crown, root canal or implant. (
  • An Implant Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. (
  • The Implant Supported Overdenture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. (
  • When compared to some other implant supported restoration methods, your new replacement teeth require fewer implants for each jaw. (
  • Dentures are a dental prosthesis for those who have one or several missing teeth. (
  • Dental implants can replace one or several teeth. (
  • Though it is possible to replace an entire jaw full of teeth with conventional dental implants, this approach will likely require upwards of 10 implants in the jaw. (

  • A simple clinical and laboratory technique to enhance the retention of an implant-retained auricular prosthesis is described, with custom-made stud attachments used for retention. (
  • NOTE Due to the variations in the design of implants covered by ISO 7198 :2016 and, in some cases, due to the relatively recent development of some of these implants (e.g. bioabsorbable vascular prostheses, cell based tissue engineered vascular prostheses), acceptable standardized in vitro tests and clinical results are not always available. (
  • It is controversial whether implanted material can cause clinical immune-mediated reactions in patients. (
  • Of the 84 implants available for clinical examination, none showed a Plaque Index or sulcus bleeding index of 3. (
  • Understanding the biomechanics of the implant-abutment connection is necessary for the long-term clinical survival of a dental implant with decreased complications. (

  • This presentation will take you through the steps necessary in diagnosing, treatment planning and predictably treating the edentulous patient with endosseous dental implants. (
  • Further, the material can be milled as a monolithic implant bridge, with lifelike pink stain applied to the gingival areas, to predictably and fully restore form and function for the patient, even in edentulous spans where significant tissue loss has occurred. (
  • Restoring a dentate or edentulous ridge with a full-arch, implant-supported prosthesis is a complex treatment modality that presents many challenges for implant surgeons, restorative dentists, and the laboratory. (
  • Thirty-six partially edentulous patients received 72 implants. (
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate and report 10-year data on outcomes of implants with an SLA surface placed in the edentulous maxilla. (
  • First, an implant allows a fixed prosthesis in almost every edentulous case that is treated with a removable prosthesis in the past. (
  • Healing abutments (also called healing cuffs) help gum tissue heal around the implant site. (
  • Most commonly, in bioactive glasses and bioactive ceramics this term refers to the ability of implanted materials to bond well with surrounding tissue in either osteo conductive or osseo productive roles. (
  • A retrospective study by Theunissen et al indicated that in patients undergoing post-mastectomy implant-based breast reconstruction (IBBR), the complication and tissue expander/implant explantation rates of the one-stage procedure were comparable to those for the two-stage operation. (
  • While vascular prostheses that are made wholly or partly of materials of non-viable biological origin, including tissue engineered vascular prostheses are within the scope, ISO 7198:2016 does not address sourcing, harvesting, manufacturing and all testing requirements for biological materials. (
  • Tissue engineered vascular prostheses that contain or are manufactured using cells present many distinct manufacturing (e.g. aseptic processing, cell seeding, etc.) and testing issues than those produced with synthetic or non-viable biological materials. (
  • Degradation, tissue ingrowth and/or tissue replacement, and other time-dependent aspects of absorbable vascular prostheses are not addressed in ISO 7198:2016. (
  • Degradation products in periprosthetic tissue from failed joint prostheses provide information about the failure mechanism. (
  • Part 1: sandblasted and acid-etched implants and mucosal tissue. (
  • The internal conical connection structure maintains the soft tissue seal and the marginal bone level around the implant. (
  • This implant was done by reconstruction through regeneration of the patient's own body tissue with the help of a unique therapy called Ossron. (
  • We were very happy that the implant was done through autologous reconstruction using Meenakshi's own body tissue, thus, making the treatment absolutely natural and safe", said the patient's husband, Mr. Kudekar. (
  • The limited study in animals indicates that the solubilized nickel is localized in the tissue near the implant, but a longer term, more comprehensive study is required to confirm this finding. (
  • Dr. Jacobs is researching how implant surfaces or materials release different kinds of debris from a patient's natural bone or tissue. (
  • We provide hybrid dental implants that allow patients to enjoy the best of both dentures and dental implant restorations. (
  • As treatment calls for the placement of traditional dental implants, patients are carefully evaluated to determine if they are candidates for hybrid dentures. (
  • With hybrid dental implants, patients can enjoy a long lasting tooth replacement that contributes to the longevity of their smile. (
  • Background: This study investigated the causes of dental implant removal due to complications, and examined whether patients who had dental implant removal desired re-implant prosthesis treatments. (
  • Material and Methods: A retrospective case-control study was conducted on patients who had their dental implants removed. (
  • Results: A total of 215 dental implants were removed from 143 patients. (
  • With saline implants, patients should proceed with their recommended mammography protocol for breast cancer screening. (
  • Functional results were comparable in patients who received the implant with either a standard or extended stem. (
  • In this group of young patients, the implant improved the functional status of the extremity. (
  • Thousands of patients are those who have traveled from outside our borders to put themselves in the hands of the expert medical team of Andromedi, with the purpose of enjoying their sexual life again thanks to the penile prosthesis. (
  • It is not surprising, therefore, that many of these patients choose to take their vacations with a double purpose: to be able to visit a unique enclave and to be surgically treated by one of the largest penile implant specialists in the world. (
  • From February to October 2003, Mycobacterium goodii wound infections were identified among three patients who received surgical implants at a Colorado hospital. (
  • The aim of the projects is analysis and identification of degradation products from implants, as well as development of new test methods for detection of possible immunological responses in patients. (
  • They are usually given to younger patients because the prosthesis provides restoration of a relatively normal head size with a durable bearing material, therefore allowing higher activity levels than standard prostheses. (
  • Patients who receive a prosthesis after the amputation of a limb often have to train for weeks or months until they can control the technology and use it in everyday life without problems. (
  • In an interview with, Prof. Oskar Aszmann talks about what bionic reconstruction actually means, how the novel prosthesis works and why the system can not only help patients after an amputation. (
  • The four patients we present in our publication did not all have a bone implant. (
  • In the patients who had this implant placed only recently, it took about three months for it to heal sufficiently. (
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a randomized controlled trial (RCT) cohort of 24 patients, the outcomes of implants with an SLA surface were registered. (
  • As an existing user, I was pleased to be the first surgeon to use the new 3D printed tibial implant for one of my patients. (
  • The hospital has a strong commitment to registries and has several, including a prospective total joint replacement registry with data on nearly 13,000 patients and one containing more than 20,000 retrieved implants. (
  • However, the maxillary prosthesis becomes unstable in some patients because of extensive palatomaxillary resection and drooping of the transferred flap. (
  • Postoperatively, patients were fitted with maxillary prostheses that hada a flat projection for the palatal fenestration. (
  • In all patients, the prosthesis was stable enough for mastication and prevented nasal regurgitation. (
  • MRI is a widespread and greatly helpful diagnostic tool, yet its use on cochlear implant patients is restricted by the presence of an inner magnet. (
  • Patients with an indication for AVR combined with CABG who will receive an Edwards Intuity Elite rapid deployment aortic valve prosthesis. (
  • Of the patients with a complete ARR, bioprosthetic valve implants were included, while mechanical valve implants were excluded. (
  • A total of 455 patients underwent a complete ARR with a bioprosthetic valve implant for nonendocarditis reasons, of which 212 (46.6%) received a stented valve, while 243 (53.4%) received a stentless valve. (
  • In such scenario, patients are rehabilitated with immediate fixed dental prosthesis. (
  • With the advent of prosthesis made of oxidised zirconium which lasts more than 30 years, knee replacement is meeting the expectations of even the younger patients. (
  • Zirconium alloy implants eliminate the risk to nickelallergic patients because this new material contains no nickel. (
  • The STAR total ankle replacement breaks at a higher rate than similar devices do, and surgeons should closely monitor patients who receive the implant, according to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). (
  • On the basis of these findings, the FDA recommends that patients who are considering the STAR implant be advised of the risk for polyethylene failure. (
  • For patients who have already received the implant, the FDA recommends that surgeons monitor for signs of polyethylene fracture. (
  • In the research community we want to figure out a way to make better and better implants that are both longer lasting and allow the functions that our patients seek,' Dr. Jacobs said. (
  • To formulate new guidelines, a joint committee of the Dutch Orthopaedic and Dental Societies conducted a systematic literature review to answer the following question: can antibiotic prophylaxis be recommended for patients (with joint prostheses) undergoing dental procedures in order to prevent dental HPJI? (
  • Studies were included if they involved patients with joint implants undergoing dental procedures, and either considered HPJI as an outcome measure or described a correlation between HPJI and prophylactic antibiotics. (
  • In addition, although breast implants can provide the upper pole projection patients often desire, they present specific risks and complications. (
  • However, this type of prosthesis is less and less used, in favor of implants (except in special cases). (
  • Second, in the case of severe alveolar bone resorption, a removable prosthesis was commonly used in the past, but the use of two or more implants, such as an implant overdenture could offer more stability. (
  • It takes merely four dental implants to support an entire overdenture. (
