  1. 1. Experimental implant-associated orthopaedic infections

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Åke Johansson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteomyelitis; anaerobic bacteria; implant design and material; bacterial collagen- and fibronectin-binding;

    Abstract : Although indispensable in today's medicine, orthopaedic implants may also cause adverse reactions. A foreign body increases the local susceptibility to colonisation by microorganisms, and hence the risk of infections. These infections are rare, but many result in prolonged or permanent impairment.

  2. 2. On the pathogenesis of infections associated with percutaneous osseointegrated orthopaedic implants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Magdalena Zaborowska; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; osseointegration; amputation prosthesis; implant-associated infection; biofilm; staphylococci; extracellular vesicles; host defence; cytokines; cell death;

    Abstract : Orthopaedic implants enable the restitution of locomotor function and improve the quality of life of many people. However, biomaterial-associated infection may occur due to the propensity of microorganisms to adhere and colonize implant surfaces. READ MORE

  3. 3. Infections associated with percutaneous osseointegrated titanium implants for limb prostheses

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg. Sahlgrenska Academy, Institute of Biomedicine

    Author : Jonatan Tillander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; osteomyelitis; osseointegration; percutaneous implant; titanium; amputation; long-term risk; clinical presentation; biofilm;

    Abstract : Femoral amputation is a devastating event. Percutaneous, bone anchored prosthetic systems reduce problems associated with socket suspended prostheses, but the design is inherently vulnerable to infection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Antibacterial Strategies for Titanium Biomaterials

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Unosson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titanium; silver; biomaterial; antibacterial; photocatalysis; hydrogen peroxide; reactive oxygen species; combinatorial materials science; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Titanium and titanium based alloys are widely used in dentistry and orthopedics to replace hard tissue and to mend broken bones. It has become a material of choice due to its low density, high strength, good biocompatibility and its capacity to integrate closely with the bone. READ MORE
