  • penis
  • Although penile implantation remains a final solution for patients with refractory impotence, undesirable postoperative effects, including penile size reduction and cold sensation of the glans penis, remain problematic. (hindawi.com)
  • There are several types of erectile prostheses, including malleable rod-like medical devices that allow the neo-penis to either stand up or hang down. (wikipedia.org)
  • femur
  • The femur is prepared for implantation of the femoral hip prosthesis by resecting the proximal femur and reaming a symmetric intramedullary cavity in the femur. (google.com)
  • The femoral hip prosthesis is then inserted the on the resected femur and in the intramedullary cavity. (google.com)
  • The femoral hip prosthesis elastically deforms when loaded during use to apply dynamic compressive loads and displacement to the calcar region of the resected proximal femur. (google.com)
  • This surgical apparatus comprises, on the one hand, means for spatial marking-out of the kneecap and femur of a patient to be operated on, and, on the other hand, means for simultaneous and relative representation of this kneecap provided virtually with a patellar implant of the prosthesis, and of this. (google.com)
  • 4 . Apparatus according to claim 1 , wherein the representation means are designed to represent the kneecap fitted virtually with the prosthesis, the femur fitted virtually with the prosthesis and, if appropriate, the line for helping the surgeon obtain different configurations of flexion-extension of the knee, the sagittal plane in which these elements are represented by these means being fixed relative to the femur. (google.com)
  • femoral
  • 13. A prosthesis as in claim 1 , wherein the neck portion has a first end and a second end, wherein the first end is connected to the flange portion and extends proximally therefrom and the second end is shaped to press-fit into the femoral head component. (google.com)
  • flange
  • 3. A prosthesis as in claim 1 , wherein the elongated stem portion comprises a proximal section having a cross sectional shape that is substantially consistent along a longitudinal length of the proximal section, wherein a minimum displacement between the bottom surface of the flange and the proximal section, measured normal to the bottom surface, is less than thirteen millimeters. (google.com)
  • 4. A prosthesis as in claim 1 , further comprising a rotation-restricting boss, extending from the bottom of the flange portion. (google.com)
  • 6. A prosthesis as in claim 5 , wherein the rotation restricting boss has an axis of protrusion with a boss axis origin near the bottom surface of the flange, the elongated stem also has a stem axis origin near the bottom of the flange, the boss axis origin and the stem axis origin are spaced apart by a length more than the maximum cross-section of the elongated stem portion. (google.com)
  • 9. A prosthesis as in claim 6 , wherein the axis of protrusion is normal to the bottom surface of the flange portion. (google.com)
  • 11. A prosthesis as in claim 1 , wherein the neck portion is aligned at an obtuse angle with respect to the bottom surface of the flange portion. (google.com)
  • For implantation in branches, the prosthesis may be provided with a flange at its trailing end. (google.com)
  • comprises
  • 2. A prosthesis as is claim 1 , wherein the elongated stem portion comprises a uniform envelope with a substantially constant cross-sectional peripheral shape and size. (google.com)
  • anatomical
  • Dr. Wendelburg's prosthesis is the "first and only to allow for a Biomechanically Anatomical, Nonconstrained, Compartmental (BANC) Elbow Arthroplasty" The prosthesis also allows the surgeon to make an intraoperative decision as to whether a partial or full replacement is necessary, which is due primarily to its modular design. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • Still, general anaesthetics and surgical interventions were required, which ultimately increased the risk of infection and the loss of prosthesis [ 3 ], so that noninvasively expandable prostheses are now considered to be the gold standard in paediatric limb-salvage surgery [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • suitable
  • This same technique enables male victims of minor to serious iatrogenic, accidental or intentional penile trauma injuries (or even total emasculation) caused by accidents, child abuse or self-mutilation to have penises suitable for penile prosthesis implantation enabling successful sexual intercourse. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • Total arch replacement combined with stented elephant trunk implantation: a new "standard" therapy for type a dissection involving repair of the aortic arch? (labome.org)
  • patients
  • Although we have lived in the era of medical treatment of ED since sildenafil was introduced in 1998 [ 7 ], penile implantation remains the final viable solution for many patients with refractory ED. The overall number of penile implantations per year rebounded after a temporary dip following introduction of sildenafil [ 8 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Penile prosthesis has been the best option to provide reliable penile rigidity in many ED patients [ 9 , 10 ], and it may be performed under local anesthesia [ 11 - 14 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • When patients performed the tasks on the amputated limb, without the prosthesis, the perception of arm length shrank, with a concurrent shift of PPS boundaries towards the stump. (epfl.ch)
  • It remains unclear whether growing prostheses are indicated in patients with metastatic disease. (hindawi.com)
  • organ
  • The prosthesis may have tubular extensions to allow the treating lesions that involve the parent tubular organ and its branches. (google.com)
  • introduction
  • On radial compaction, the prosthesis has a low profile, allowing introduction into the body with a deployment instrument of low calibre. (google.com)
  • size
  • Using this apparatus, the surgeon can easily and quickly check the antero-posterior size of the prosthesis in order to reduce the risks of subsequent dislocations of the kneecap fitted with the prosthesis. (google.com)
  • Experience
  • The first three survey questions asked about participants' personal experience with expandable prostheses, including years in practice, previous experience in orthopaedic oncology, and experience with the implantation of growing prostheses over the last three years. (hindawi.com)
  • years
  • The minimum median patient age was 6.5 years, and 3-5 cm of predicted growth deficit was the minimum before implanting a growing prosthesis. (hindawi.com)
  • Total
  • One of the most notable developments by Dr. Wendelburg in recent has been the invention of a prosthesis for canine total elbow replacement. (wikipedia.org)
  • shape
  • 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. (google.com)
  • length
  • Conversely, wearing the prosthesis increased the perceived length of the stump and extended the PPS boundaries so as to include the prosthetic hand, such that the prosthesis partially replaced the missing limb. (epfl.ch)
  • Furthermore, we aimed to identify alternative methods other than expandable prostheses to compensate for limb-length inequality. (hindawi.com)
  • body
  • Little is known about whether and how multimodal representations of the body (BRs) and of the space around the body (Peripersonal Space, PPS) adapt to amputation and prosthesis implantation. (epfl.ch)
  • Electrodes can be placed into nervous tissue, and the body can be trained to control the prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
