  1. 1. Fixation of Spinal Implants : Clinical and Experimental Studies on the Effects of Hydroxyapatite Coating

    Author : Bengt Sandén; Acke Ohlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Hydroxyapatite; pedicle screw; histomorphometry; fixation; radiolucent zones; screw loosening; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Loosening of implants is a frequent complication in orthopaedic surgery. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate hydroxyapatite coating of pedicle screws with mechanical and histological methods and to correlate the results with the radiological findings.Hydroxyapatite (HA) coating of pedicle screws was investigated in experimental studies in sheep.

  2. 2. On failure of oral implants

    Author : Bruno Chrcanovic; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Introduktion: Behandling med orala implantat är idag en effektiv och fungerande metod att ersätta bettfunktion vid partiell eller hel tandlöshet. Trots höga överlevnads- och lyckandesiffror finns ändå riskfaktorer som för vissa patienter kan resultera i implantatförlust. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bone grafts and dental implants in the reconstruction of the severely atrophied, edentulous maxilla

    Author : Björn Johansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; dental implants; maxilla; grafted bone; implant failure; clinical study; computed tomography; cutting torque; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; plastikkirurgi; Plastic Surgery;

    Abstract : In two prospective, clinical studies the stability of implants and prosthetic constructions were evaluated after three years of loading. In the first study, the implant and the bridge stability of 39 patients with 1-stage bone grafts, were compared to a reference-group of 37 patients who did not need bone grafts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aseptic Loosening of Orthopedic Implants : Osteoclastogenesis Regulation and Potential Therapeutics

    Author : Mehdi Amirhosseini; Anna Fahlgren; Göran Andersson; Teun J. de Vries; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Aseptic loosening is the main cause of failure of orthopedic prostheses. With no pharmaceuticals to prevent or mitigate periprosthetic bone degradation, a surgery to replace the loose implant with a new one is the only choice to restore patients’ function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects of maxillary sinus reconstruction with endosseous implants

    Author : John Eric Blomqvist; Lunds universitet; []

    Abstract : This study of maxillary sinus reconstruction in conjunction with insertion of endosseous implants included 99 patients. Two separate surgical methods were applied; a one-staged strategy (n=49) and a two-staged strategy (n=50). The aims were to compare two different strategies concerning implant and prosthetic construction survival. READ MORE
