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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bengt Sandén; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Hydroxyapatite; pedicle screw; histomorphometry; fixation; radiolucent zones; screw loosening; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN 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. 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.

  3. 3. Improved titanium and steel implants Studies on bisphosphonate, strontium and surface treatments

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Paula Linderbäck; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Purpose: The general aim of this thesis was to increase the understanding of biomaterial surface modifications and local delivery of osteoporosis drugs for bone integration. We therefore (i) characterised and investigated model surface coatings for controlled drug delivery in a rat tibia screw model (ii) elucidated the effect of surface treatment for activation of complement system in vitro.

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    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
