Analysis of 118 second-generation metal-on-metal retrieved hip implants. (1/4301)

Osteolysis is due to particulate wear debris and is responsible for the long-term failure of total hip replacements. It has stimulated the development of alternative joint surfaces such as metal-on-metal or ceramic-on-ceramic implants. Since 1988 the second-generation metal-on-metal implant Metasul has been used in over 60 000 hips. Analysis of 118 retrieved specimens of the head or cup showed rates of wear of approximately 25 microm for the whole articulation per year in the first year, decreasing to about 5 microm per year after the third. Metal surfaces have a 'self-polishing' capacity. Scratches are worn out by further joint movement. Volumetric wear was decreased some 60-fold compared with that of metal-on-polyethylene implants, suggesting that second-generation metal-on-metal prostheses may considerably reduce osteolysis.  (+info)

Low-friction arthroplasty of the hip using alumina ceramic and cross-linked polyethylene. A ten-year follow-up report. (2/4301)

We report the results of our continued review of 14 hip arthroplasties using alumina ceramic femoral heads with cross-linked polyethylene cups. There have been no complications and a very low rate of penetration. This was 0.02 mm per year after an initial 'bedding-in' period of two years. There has been no change in the mean rate between our earlier study at six years and the current results at 10 to 11 years. The use of these bearing surfaces appears to reduce the potential amount of polyethylene debris and may provide the next logical stage in the development of the Charnley low-friction arthroplasty.  (+info)

Cement migration after THR. A comparison of charnley elite and exeter femoral stems using RSA. (3/4301)

Studies using roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA) have shown that the femoral components of cemented total hip replacements (THR) migrate distally relative to the bone, but it is not clear whether this occurs at the cement-implant or the cement-bone interface or within the cement mantle. Our aim was to determine where this migration occurred, since this has important implications for the way in which implants function and fail. Using RSA we compared for two years the migration of the tip of the stem with that of the cement restrictor for two different designs of THR, the Exeter and Charnley Elite. We have assumed that if the cement restrictor migrates, then at least part of the cement mantle also migrates. Our results have shown that the Exeter migrates distally three times faster than the Charnley Elite and at different interfaces. With the Exeter migration was at the cement-implant interface whereas with the Charnley Elite there was migration at both the cement-bone and the cement-implant interfaces.  (+info)

Subsidence of a non-polished stem in revisions of the hip using impaction allograft. Evaluation with radiostereometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. (4/4301)

We revised 24 consecutive hips with loosening of the femoral stem using impaction allograft and a cemented stem with an unpolished proximal surface. Repeated radiostereometric examinations for up to two years showed a slow rate of subsidence with a mean of 0.32 mm (-2.0 to +0.31). Fifteen cases followed for a further year showed the same mean subsidence after three years, indicating stabilisation. A tendency to retroversion of the stems was noted between the operation and the last follow-up. Retroversion was also recorded when displacement of the stem was studied in ten of the patients after two years. Repeated determination of bone mineral density showed an initial loss after six months, followed by recovery to the postoperative level at two years. Defects in the cement mantle and malalignment of the stem were often noted on postoperative radiographs, but did not correlate with the degrees of migration or displacement. After one year, increasing frequency of trabecular remodelling or resorption of the graft was observed in the greater trochanter and distal to the tip of the stem. Cortical repair was noted distally and medially (Gruen regions 3, 5 and 6). Migration of the stems was the lowest reported to date, which we attribute to the improved grafting technique and to the hardness of the graft.  (+info)

Determination of Hounsfield value for CT-based design of custom femoral stems. (5/4301)

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)

Endovascular stent graft repair of aortopulmonary fistula. (6/4301)

Two patients who had aortopulmonary fistula of postoperative origin with hemoptysis underwent successful repair by means of an endovascular stent graft procedure. One patient had undergone repeated thoracotomies two times, and the other one time to repair anastomotic aneurysms of the descending aorta after surgery for Takayasu's arteritis. A self-expanding stainless steel stent covered with a Dacron graft was inserted into the lesion through the external iliac or femoral artery. The patients recovered well, with no signs of infection or recurrent hemoptysis 8 months after the procedure. Endovascular stent grafting may be a therapeutic option for treating patients with aortopulmonary fistula.  (+info)

Total knee replacement: should it be cemented or hybrid? (7/4301)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the complication rates associated with total knee arthroplasty against the types of fixation (hybrid or cemented), using a single total knee design (the anatomic modular knee [AMK] prosthesis). DESIGN: A prospective, nonrandomized, controlled trial. SETTING: University Hospital in London, Ont., a tertiary care teaching centre. PATIENTS: Two groups made up of 484 knees in 395 patients (89 bilateral). INTERVENTIONS: In 260 knees a hybrid configuration (cemented tibia and noncemented femur) was used (group 1). In 224 knees the femoral and tibial components were cemented (group 2). All patellae were cemented in both groups. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Clinical results were assessed by The Knee Society Clinical Rating Scores at 3 months, 6 months and yearly intervals. Radiographic results were determined by 3-foot standing radiographs and at each follow-up visit standing knee radiographs, lateral and skyline views. Radiographs were analysed for alignment, presence or absence of radiolucent lines or changes in the position of the implant. All reoperations and nonoperative complications were recorded. RESULTS: At an average follow-up of 4.8 years, 8 knees (1.6%) required reoperation. An analysis of the complications leading to reoperation demonstrated no difference between the 2 groups. CONCLUSIONS: There was no difference in outcome whether the femoral component was cemented or not. Medium-term results of the AMK are excellent with a very low reoperation rate.  (+info)

Bileaflet mechanical prostheses for aortic valve replacement in patients younger than 65 years and 65 years of age or older: major thromboembolic and hemorrhagic complications. (8/4301)

OBJECTIVE: To determine major thromboembolic and hemorrhagic complications and predictive risk factors associated with aortic valve replacement (AVR), using bileaflet mechanical prostheses (CarboMedics and St. Jude Medical). DESIGN: A case series. SETTING: Cardiac surgical services at the teaching institutions of the University of British Columbia. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients 2 age groups who had undergone AVR between 1989 and 1994 were studied. Group 1 comprised 384 patients younger than 65 years. Group 2 comprised 215 patients 65 years of age and older. RESULTS: The linearized rates of major thromboembolism (TE) occurring after AVR were 1.54%/patient-year for group 1 and 3.32%/patient-year for group 2; the rates for major TE occurring more than 30 days after AVR were 1.13%/patient-year for group 1 and 1.55%/patient-year for group 2. The crude rates for major TE occurring within 30 days of AVR were 1.04% for group 1 and 3.72% for group 2. The death rate from major TE in group 1 was 0.31%/patient-year and in group 2 was 0.88%/patient-year. Of the major TE events occurring within 30 days, 100% of patients in both age groups were inadequately anticoagulated at the time of the event, and for events occurring more than 30 days after AVR, 45% in group 1 and 57% in group 2 were inadequately anticoagulated (INR less than 2.0). The overall linearized rates of major hemorrhage were 1.54%/patient-year for group 1 and 2.21%/patient-year for group 2. There were no cases of prosthesis thrombosis in either group. The mean (and standard error) overall freedom from major TE for group 1 patients at 5 years was 95.6% (1.4%) and with exclusion of early events was 96.7% (1.3%); for group 2 patients the rates were 90.0% (3.2%) and 93.7% (3.0%), respectively. The mean (and SE) overall freedom from major and fatal TE and hemorrhage for group 1 patients was 90.1% (2.3%) and with exclusion of early events was 91.2% (2.3%); for group 2 patients the rates were 87.9% (3.1%) and 92.5% (2.9%), respectively. The 5-year rate for freedom from valve-related death for group 1 patients was 96.3% (2.1%) and for group 2 patients was 97.2% (1.2%). CONCLUSION: The thromboembolic and hemorrhagic complications after AVR with bileaflet mechanical prostheses occur more frequently and result in more deaths in patients 65 years of age and older than in patients years younger than 65 years.  (+info)

The effect of the interaction between gender and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) prosthesis design on patient-reported outcomes is an understudied area of research. We evaluated 1613 patients, from the Ontario Joint Replacement Registry (2001-2006), who underwent primary total knee replacement. This study investigated the impact of the gender-PCL design interaction on Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) change scores and patient satisfaction, by performing linear regression analysis, using full-adjusted models that also included the gender-PCL prosthesis design interaction variable. PCL prosthesis design did not affect WOMAC change scores or satisfaction (p|0.05). Moreover, Gender did not influence either of the patient-reported outcomes (p|0.05). In addition, the interaction between gender and PCL design did not impact patient-reported outcomes (p|0.05). In conclusion, the surgical preference to retain or sacrifice the PCL should not be influenced by the gender of

The radially expandable prosthesis for implantation in a lumen comprises a tubular wall produced from sheet metal and showing cuts enabling the prosthesis to expand. By using water guided laser cutting technology to make these cuts and/or specific electrochemical polishing technology a more biocompatible prosthesis is obtained, causing less thrombogenicity and less foreign body reaction. By covering an intraluminal prosthesis with a titaniumnitride coating the biocompatibility of the prosthesis is improved. By applying perforating or non-perforating holes (4) and filling these holes with a therapeutic agent, the intraluminal prosthesis can be used to locally administer medicines, genes and or other substances to prevent in this way thrombotic occlusions and/or neointimal hyperplasia and prosthesis narrowing. Using this specific perforated prosthesis design the total drug capacity can be increased and also the drug release time prolongs significantly.
By examining the effects of two different implant offsets and the variation of anteversion, this numerical analysis demonstrates that the stress levels developed within the Wagner SL revision stem are the highest in situations with severely compromised bone stock. A combination of increased offset and anteversion, resulted in the highest stresses, but even this combination should not induce critical stresses in the implant during normal activities of daily living, even for an extensive bone defect (Paprosky type IIIb), necessitating distal fixation.In all regions of the implant, the maximum determined stresses of 225MPa remained well below the implant materials fatigue limit of 450MPa [28], suggesting that the implant is capable of withstanding normal physiological loading without the risk of failure.. While in clinical practice the diameter of the stem to be implanted would likely be influenced also by the extent of the bone defect, in the current study a single stem diameter was used for all ...

We present a new approach to designing three-dimensional, physically realizable porous femoral implants with spatially varying microstructures and effective material properties. We optimize over a simplified design domain to reduce shear stress at the bone-prosthetic interface with a constraint on the bone resorption measured using strain energy. This combination of objective and constraint aims to reduce implant failure and allows a detailed study of the implant designs obtained with a range of microstructure sets and parameters. The microstructure sets are either specified directly or constructed using shape interpolation between a finite number of microstructures optimized for multifunctional characteristics. We demonstrate that designs using varying microstructures outperform designs with a homogeneous microstructure for this femoral implant problem. Further, the choice of microstructure set has an impact on the objective values achieved and on the optimized implant designs. A ...
An implantable prosthesis for placement in hollow tubular organs is described alongwith an instrument for deploying the said prosthesis. On radial compaction, the prosthesis has a low profile, allowing introduction into the body with a deployment instrument of low calibre. The prosthesis has a longitudinal strut to provide longitudinal support. 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. Magnetized wires or powder may be attached to the prosthesis to facilitate this process and provide in addition radial elasticity to the prosthesis. The prosthesis may have tubular extensions to allow the treating lesions that involve the parent tubular organ and its branches. Alternatively, the prosthesis may be provided with apertures which can be widened in vivo. For implantation in branches, the prosthesis may be provided with a flange at its trailing end.

Over 93,000 patients around the world received a DePuy ASR hip replacement implant between 2003 and 2010. In August of 2010, DePuy issued a recall of the devices after massive amounts of evidence demonstrated a much higher than average failure rate - 13% in the first five years after surgery - in the recalled devices. A few lawsuits against DePuy were filed even before the recall began. Now, a few months into the recall, the number of hip replacement lawsuits increases almost daily.. Before a satisfactory settlement is reached, the number of lawsuits could reach into the thousands or even tens of thousands. DePuy has promised to reimburse patients for certain expenses related to the recall, but only at the companys unilateral discretion. Reports are already emerging that the company has denied patient claims and reportedly told some patients that they caused their own injuries and the faulty devices were not to blame.. The DePuy lawsuits that have already been filed claim that the company knew ...
Wall Street knew that Zimmer Biomet would have almost $5 billion in cash to spend over the next few years. And it expected the orthopedics company to plow much of that cash into M&A. Now, Zimmer has taken a step toward that with a purchase of spinal surgery player LDR Holding for about $1 billion.
A biventricular cardiac prosthesis has a flow balance control system to balance blood flow through the left and right sides of the prosthesis to maintain a patients left atrial pressure within physiologic bounds. The prosthesis can be configured to have flow characteristics so that a signal representative of the difference in hydraulic pumping pressures on the left and right sides of the prosthesis is representative of the difference between left and right atrial pressures of a patient having the prosthesis implanted. This signal can be used as a control signal to drive the prosthesis so that left atrial pressure is approximately equal to right atrial pressure, and within physiologic bounds. A specific prosthesis includes left and right pumping sections, each having a blood pumping chamber and a hydraulic fluid chamber, with a reciprocating hydraulic pump driving systole alternately on the right and left sides. A hydraulic balance chamber is hydraulically coupled to the right hydraulic fluid chamber
Just what testicular prosthesis?. A prosthesis is any artificial gadget used to change a body part. Each time a male can be blessed without a testicle or must have got one removed due to injury or disease, a doctor may implant a testicular prosthesis to fill in the unfilled space in the scrotum (the sac that consists of the testicles). The prosthesis can be used only to improve appearance and to calm mental worries. It really does not have any kind of functions of a true testicle. More often than not really, requests for a testicular prosthesis come from those who are blessed with and later on get rid of a testicle, rather than from those who possess constantly been missing a testicle.. Testicular prostheses have been in use since the 1940s. In the former they were made of a variety of materials. At this time, however, they are mainly produced of silicone plastic loaded with either silicone serum or saline ( salt water ). A testicular prosthesis will possess the pounds, shape, and feel of a ...

A porous implantable prosthesis is loaded with a substance for subsequent application to biological tissues. A method according to loading the substance to the porous prosthesis is provided. A first fluid in combination with an added substance is applied to the porous prosthesis. During the application, the first fluid containing the substance is capable of penetrating into prosthesis pores. The first fluid is removed and a second fluid is applied to the prosthesis. The second fluid is not capable of significantly penetrating into the pores. Prior to the application of the second fluid, the prosthesis can be immersed in a third fluid and agitated via mechanical perturbation techniques so that any of the substance gathered on the surface of the body, after the application of the first fluid, is removed. The third fluid should not be capable of dissolving the substance.
Nowadays, the placement of artificial prostheses in human skeleton, etc. is common due to different reasons such as fractures or deficiencies. Prostheses are structures that assist the performance of organs by reconstruction of some body parts through different methods to enable the organ to re-obtain its performance completely or partially and, since the use of external prostheses might lead to issues such as severe traumas, slow recovery and imposition of enormous hospital costs on the patient, therefore, use of internal prostheses can be an effective method for accelerating the process of improvement for the patient. By using CT-scan photos of a 54-year-old man weighing 60 kg and with a femur length of 36 centimeters, and also using a titanium prosthesis with diameters equaling 9 and 13 mm along with screws with diameters of 4 mm whose placement are with angles of ±4, ±4 and ±36 degrees, the geometry of the model has been provided and the model has been analyzed through the finite element method.

Letters and e-mails introduced at the Los Angeles trial raise serious questions about how J&J lived up to that credo. In 2006, a DePuy executive wrote that an influential surgeon in the Netherlands was seeing significant failure rates with one of the ASR products. In 2007, an Australian surgeon wrote to DePuy that one ASR device was a flawed prosthesis and should be withdrawn from the market. In 2008, one of DePuys own highly paid consulting surgeons warned of problems, adding, I do not use the ASR ...

Despite the absence of a Zimmer knee recall, many injured by the Zimmer knee replacement devices have filed lawsuits due to their NexGen implants.
Zimmer suffered the broken left hand in the bottom of the seventh inning of Sundays 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Progressive Field.. On a softly hit grounder to first baseman Chris Davis, Zimmer tried to slide around a tag attempt and was stepped on while attempting to reach the base. Immediately after the out was recorded, Zimmer remained down on the ground and was attended to by Indians medical personnel before walking to the dugout and exiting the game.. I know you hear so often, Dont slide into first, Indians manager Terry Francona said. You hear it all the time. I disagree. As a baserunner, when youre running that way and a fielders coming this way or the pitchers coming this way, sometimes, the best way to get to the bag is by sliding.. Yeah, he got stepped on, but you could just as easily blow out an ankle or a knee. That guy hit his hand. It wouldve hit his foot. Its hard for a runner. When youve got somebody else coming, youre really vulnerable. Sometimes, I ...

Disclosed is a tubular prosthesis formed by rolling a perforated sheet around a longitudinal axis. Preferably, the prosthesis is self expandable under the radially outwardly directed spring bias of the rolled sheet. The perforations in the sheet are configured to provide throughholes in the wall of the multilayer prosthesis, when the prosthesis is in the implanted diameter within a vessel. The throughholes are configured to facilitate neointimal cell growth, and in a preferred embodiment, to minimize roll bias in the prosthesis as it is expanded from its reduced, insertion diameter to its expanded, implanted diameter. The prosthesis may be used as a graft or a stent.

A tubular prosthesis is implanted at a target location within a body lumen by transluminally positioning the prosthesis and thereafter radially expanding the prosthesis to conform to an inner wall of the lumen. The prosthesis typically includes a braided tubular body and is typically provided with an everting or other structure for locking the prosthesis in its radially expanded configuration.
A tubular prosthesis is implanted at a target location within a body lumen by transluminally placing and embedding an expansible prosthesis body within a sealing layer. The sealing layer occludes at least a circumferential band within an interface region between the prosthesis body and the inner wall of the body lumen, thus providing for blockage of body lumen flow past the prosthesis. The sealing layer may be introduced prior to or simultaneously with the prosthesis body. A tubular prosthesis may be implanted in blood vessels, particularly to protect aneurysms.

The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. represent a growing number of people who are pursuing a potential DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuit after experiencing early failure of their hip replacement. Plagued by similar problems that ultimately led to a DePuy ASR hip recall last year, we believe that the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip systems should also be removed from the market.. ,,REVIEW A POTENTIAL DEPUY HIP REPLACEMENT LAWSUIT,,.

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. is facing public scrutiny regarding the reportedly premature loosening and failure of its Pinnacle hip prostheses.

The next step was to test a first bamboo prototype and to make it adjustable. Most prosthesis users currently depend on orthopaedists for every minor adjustment of their prostheses, but that could theoretically be avoided. Many users do not realize that they already have a lot of first-hand knowledge about their own prosthesis, since they wear them 24/7; they are the experts on their own prosthetics use. Children generally need to have their prosthetic legs recalibrated by a doctor every six months. In Indonesia, this costs a lot of time and money. An adjustable leg would enable end users to adjust their prosthetic legs themselves by feeling and experiencing the fit, measuring the prosthesis and adapting it.. Walking on different surfaces also requires adaptation of the leg. The roll-off curve of a foot changes drastically when walking on different surfaces. The majority of prostheses on the market are designed for just one standard surface. An adjustable prosthesis would enable users to manage ...

The prosthesis can be a crown, bridge or part or assembly of both.

The companys Knees business continued to be the largest moneymaker in 2016, ascending 21 percent from the year prior to $2.8 billion. The double-digit growth was chiefly driven by recent product introductions like the Persona Personalized Knee System, cross-sell opportunities, and continued strong performance in the Asia Pacific region. Two implant technologies to support the Persona Knee System and Vanguard 360 Revision System released in March also invigorated the Knees business, and the latest addition to the Vanguard portfolio, the first-of-its-kind Vanguard Individualized Design (ID) knee replacement, was released in September. The Hips business followed suit in terms of double-digit growth, surging 22 percent to $1.9 billion.
