  1. 1. On customization of orthopedic implants - from design and additive manufacturing to implementation

    Author : Marie Cronskär; Mats Tinnsten; Mikael Bäckström; Lars-Erik Rännar; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Patient-specific implants; Additive manufacturing; Electron beam melting; Multibody musculoskeletal analysis; Orthopedic implants; Clavicle; Finite element analysis; Computer aided design; Osteosynthesis plate; Hip stem implants;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis is devoted to studying the possibilities of using additive manufacturing (AM) and design based on computed tomography (CT), for the production of patient-specific implants within orthopedic surgery, initially in a broad perspective and, in the second part of the thesis focusing on customized clavicle osteosynthesis plates. The main AM method used in the studies is the Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Bisphosphonates for orthopedic applications. Studies in rat models

    Author : Jörgen Åstrand; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; orthopaedics; Surgery; topical treatment; osteonecrosis; bone graft resorption; prosthetic loosening; Bisphosphonates; osteoclasts;

    Abstract : Prosthetic loosening, bone graft resorption and osteonecrosis are examples of problems in orthopedic surgery caused by or augmented by bone resorption. Bone resorption is caused by osteoclasts. Osteoclasts can be inactivated with biphosphonates, a drug in clinical use against osteoporosis and osteolytic tumors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Patient Reported Outcomes and Orthopedic Surgery in Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Author : Korosh Hekmat; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid Arthritis; Orthopaedic Surgery; Patient Reported Outcomes; Outcomes; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Orthopedic surgery is used effectively in many patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis RA). The aim of modern pharmacologic treatment is to prevent joint destruction and reduce the need for orthopedic surgery. Patient reported outcomes (PROs) are important measures of the burden of RA.
