  • vitro
  • This study aimed at evaluating the long-term in vitro degradation properties of a high-strength brushite CPC in three different solutions: water, phosphate buffered saline, and a serum solution. (diva-portal.org)
  • Device
  • Replacement structures, such as Co--Cr or Ti prostheses require that there be a strong bond between the bone to which the prosthetic device is joined and the prosthetic device. (google.com)
  • ceramic
  • When compared alongside autogenous iliac crest bone graft (AICBG), union of tibial osteotomy took longer and pain persisted longer when ceramic wedges were used. (boneandjoint.org.uk)
  • mineral
  • This elaborate structural arrangement redeems the weaknesses of the individual components (being soft protein or brittle mineral) and gives bone its excellent mechanical properties for the protection and support of our bodies. (dissertations.se)
  • formation
  • The results showed a higher bone formation in the pCPC compared to the water-based CPC after 2 weeks by expression of RUNX-2. (diva-portal.org)
  • invention relates
  • More particularly, this invention relates to a system for delivering the mixture of solids and cements so as to minimize the uncontrolled flow of cement out of the space into which it is delivered. (google.com)
  • methods
  • The anatomical restoration of the joint surface in intra-articular impacted fractures can be achieved mainly by two popularised methods: a) a bone punch using a cortical window that allows access to the depressed fragment or b) the balloon inflation osteoplasty. (efortopenreviews.org)
  • treatment
  • Systems are well known in the art for delivering materials such as bone cement to a target site for medical treatment. (google.com)
  • 1 The effective filling of the subchondral bone voids following successful elevation of osteochondral fragments remains an essential part of treatment as it provides structural support, eliminating the risk of secondary collapse and subsequent failure. (efortopenreviews.org)
  • and second, to present our current understanding of impacted or depressed fractures of the lower limb, with special consideration of their epidemiology and the treatment options. (efortopenreviews.org)
  • composite
  • When used for sustained release of biologically active agents in a physiological environment, controlled release of biological agents that are mixed into the composite can be achieved as the cement biodegrades. (google.com)
  • relates
  • The invention generally relates to a system for delivering a mixture, an agglomeration of solid beads and liquid-state cement for implantation into a bone. (google.com)
  • study
  • 1 Recently, the use of bone grafting in osteotomy has been questioned in a study that showed no difference in complications, union time and rate in grafted and non-grafted osteotomies. (boneandjoint.org.uk)
  • materials
  • Both materials were considered to have a high biocompatibility since no marked immunological response was induced and extensive bone ingrowth was observed. (diva-portal.org)
  • consists
  • Today the cement mixing is performed in the operating room and consists of several complicated steps that need to be performed under sterile conditions. (diva-portal.org)
  • mixture
  • The cements are formed via mixing a powder with water and the mixture harden through a dissolution-precipitation reaction. (diva-portal.org)
  • method
  • However, a successful, non-destructive porosity measurement method that does not include drying has not yet been reported for calcium phosphate cements. (diva-portal.org)
  • The main advantages with this method are that it is non-destructive, fast, easy and the porosity can be evaluated while the cements remain wet, allowing for further analysis on the same specimen. (diva-portal.org)
  • brittle
  • There are many situations where bone has been broken, destroyed, degraded, become too brittle, or has been subject to other deteriorating effects. (google.com)
  • hollow
  • Alternative instrumentation to the hollow trephine cutter includes the use of bone punches, probes or a triple reamer from the sliding hip screw set. (efortopenreviews.org)
  • different
  • The cements were allowed to set in an aqueous environment and then immersed in isopropanol and stored under three different conditions: at room temperature, at room temperature under vacuum (300 mbar) or at 37􏰀C. The specimen mass was monitored regularly. (diva-portal.org)
