High impact information on Joint Prosthesis


Associations of Joint Prosthesis with chemical compounds

  • The use of porous metallic coatings for fixation of total joint prostheses by bone ingrowth has become a widespread alternative to fixation with PMMA bone cement [11].
  • A thermoplastic polymer, Delrin 150 (polyoxymethylene homopolymer), with creep resistance ten times that of ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene, is used as a material for total joint prostheses [12].
  • The radiopharmaceuticals gallium-67 and indium-111 labelled leucocytes have been compared in 15 patients with a painful joint prosthesis in an attempt to identify those patients with periprosthetic infection [13].
  • The significance of these findings with regard to the in vivo corrosion of aluminium-containing metal alloy joint prostheses (e.g., TiAlV alloys) is discussed [14].
  • Methyl methacrylate monomer can evaporate from bone cement to reach cytotoxic levels of concentrations in the implant bed of total joint prosthesis [15].
