• fixture
  • Osseointegration of a fixture in bone is defined as the loose apposition of new and reformed bone in congruence with the fixture, including surface irregularities, so that at light microscopic level, there is no interpositioned connective or fibrous tissue and that a direct structural and functional connection is established, capable of carrying normal physiological loads without excessive deformation and without initiating rejecting mechanism.

  • limb
  • As a result of an increased desire for functionality for patients with transfemoral, transhumeral, and transtibial amputations [3,9- osseointegration technology has been developed for direct skeletal attachment of an exoprosthesis to the residual limb. (biomedsearch.com)
  • surface
  • With the development of nanotechnology, many researches have shown that nanometer-scaled materials especially TiO 2 nanotube have a positive effect on cellular behavior and surface characteristics of implant, which are considered to be crucial factors in osseointegration. (hindawi.com)
  • also reported that, in order to achieve optimum osseointegration, ideal combination of surface properties of implant such as roughness, surface energy, composition, and topography is required, and these properties affect cell adhesion and propagation as well as protein adsorption in early healing period [ 8 - 10 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • According to studies on the speed of osseointegration, implant with rough surface showed a faster and stronger osseointegration than implant with smooth surface [ 7 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Second, the implant was grit blasted and acid etched, which provided both a larger surface area and more preferable substrate for cells involved in osseointegration. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been suggested that Titanium's capacity for Osseointegration stems from the high dielectric constant of its surface oxide, which does not denature proteins (like Ta, and Co alloys). (wikipedia.org)
  • Titanium's microstructure and high surface energy enable it to induce angiogenesis, which assists in the process of osseointegration. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Osseointegration may also be defined as : Osseous integration, the apparent direct attachment or connection of osseous tissue to an inert alloplastic material without intervening connective tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • organisation founded
  • EAO asbl, operating as the European Association for Osseointegration (EAO) is a non-profit organisation founded in Munich in 1991 to serve as an international, interdisciplinary and independent science-based forum for all professionals interested in the art and science of Osseointegration. (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • Prosthetics installed by osseointegration provide several advantages over conventional options as they are built with fewer components, simple frame design, lightweight feel, and greater comfort. (gminsights.com)
