Book Description :

Joint replacement has been one of the major successes of modern medicine. Its continued success depends on effective collaboration between clinicians and researchers across many different areas in science and medicine. This important book brings together the wide range of research in this area and its implications for clinical practice. The book sets the scene with introductory chapters on joint biomechanics and tribology, materials for joint replacement and their interactions with the body, and regulatory issues. Part two reviews the use of metals and ceramics as joint replacement materials, joint design, bone cements and cementless fixation techniques, failure mechanisms and ways of predicting the lifetime of replacement joints. The third part of the book summarises research on how prosthetic joints interact with the body, including biological causes of joint failure, sterilisation techniques and the use of drug delivery systems to enhance joint replacement. The final group of chapters reviews key issues in replacing particular joints including the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow as well as developments in intervertebral disc and tempero-mandibular joint replacement technology. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Joint replacement technology is a standard reference for the engineering and materials scientific communities, as well as surgeons seeking the best treatment for their patients.

Book Description :

This second edition of Joint Replacement Technology provides a thoroughly updated review of recent developments in joint replacement technology. Joint replacement is a standard treatment for joint degradation and has improved the quality of life of millions of patients. Collaboration between clinicians and researchers is critical to its continued success and to meet the rising expectations of patients and surgeons. Part one introduces the advances in joint replacement technology, tribological considerations and experiments, and immune and regenerative responses to joint replacements. Part two covers the materials and techniques used in joint replacement. The advantages and disadvantages of different metals are explained here, as well as the use of ceramics. This section also addresses challenges in joint bearing surfaces, design, and cementless fixation techniques. Biological and mechanical issues are considered in part three, including healing responses to implants and biological causes of prosthetic joint failure, and a new chapter on imaging of joint prostheses. Each chapter in part four describes the clinical challenges of replacing specific joints, with specific focus on hip, knee, intervertebral disc joint, shoulder arthroplasty, elbow arthroplasty, and pyrocarbon small joint arthroplasty. Thanks to its widespread collaboration and international contributors, Joint Replacement Technology is useful for materials scientists and engineers in both academia and biomedical industry. Chemists, clinicians, and other researchers in this area will also find it invaluable.

Book Description :

Implantable jOint prostheses which have been under development for more than 25 years, are today being used with success in the rehabilitation of many cases, including patients with extremely severe joint pathology. However, artificial joint designs still pose problems with respect to their function, anchoring, materials employed and the interaction of the prosthesis with the surrounding biological tissues. Some of these problems are associated with considerable therapeutic complications. Further improvement in the artificial joint requires the application of all the modern experimental and research techniques and the close cooperation of medical doctors, engineers and scientists. The International Symposium on Advances in Artificial Hip and Knee Joint Technology held at Erlangen on October 30 and 31, 1975 under the auspices of the Societas Physica Medica Erlangensis, had as its aim the promotion of just this interdisciplinary cooperation. One of the traditional objectives of the Societas has been the advancement of diagnosis and therapy by the adaptation of medical skill to modern technology and scientific engineering concepts. The major objective of this volume is to present, in expanded form, the lectures given by internationally recognized scientists and clinical researchers in the field of artificial joints in the locomotor system, and to make that information available to a wider public. The experience discussed covers the principles and primary methods of joint replacement.

Book Description :

"Take away my knee pain and give me better motion". This is what the arthritic patient expects from a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). By virtue of standardization of the TKA procedure, surgeons can nowadays solve the pain issue for the majority of the patients. Restoration of function is a goal of a different order and forms the scope of this book. The editors confronted today's leading knee surgeons with the limitations of current surgical techniques and technology. They challenged them to define new thresholds of functional capacity after Total Knee Arthroplasty. "A Guide to Get Better Performance in TKA" describes the cutting edge in surgical techniques, prosthetic design and achievement of excellent function for these patients.

Book Description :

This book is written for the users and designers of joint replacements. In its second extended edition it conveys to the reader the knowledge accumulated by the authors during their forty year effort on the development of replacement devices for the lower limb for the purpose of aiding the reader in their design and evaluation of joint replacement devices. The early chapters describe the engineering, scientific and medical principles needed for replacement joint evaluation. One must understand the nature and performance of the materials involved and their characteristics in vivo, i.e. the response of the body to implant materials. It is also essential to understand the response of the implants to applied loading and motion, particularly in the hostile physiological environment. A chapter describes the design methodology now required for joint replacement in the USA and EU countries. The remaining chapters provide a history of joint replacement, an evaluation of earlier and current devices and sample case histories of some of the authors’ devices. The present second edition includes various additional case reports as well as a new chapter devoted to the shoulder. Drs. Buechel, an orthopaedic surgeon, and Pappas, a professor of Mechanical Engineering, are the designers of several successful joint replacement systems. The most well-known of these is the pioneering LCS knee replacement.

Book Description :

This book reviews the recent international experience with the applications of computer assisted orthopaedic surgery in clinical practice. Recent decades of the human condition have witnessed the dramatic evolution of technology and the application to everyday existence. The ability to use such innovation in surgical practice is now easily within our grasp. Though clinical experience is short term, as will be demonstrated the problems are finite and limited only by the need for refinement. We can now clearly state that current surgical practice will be revolutionized by these new methodologies. This edition is all encompassing for musculoskeletal surgery including the spine, trauma, sports, and reconstructive surgery. Because of its simplicity, computer navigation will be an early tool in such areas as total joint replacement, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, and placement of pedicle screws in complex spinal surgery. New techniques in Minimally Invasive Surgery will require the precision and digital "surgical exposure" offered by the computer. However, we anticipate in a few years, that robotics with computer activated technology will rise to an important role for the practicing surgeon. Surgeons who are comfortable with technology and yearn for better solutions with their techniques will benefit from the knowledge of this experience. Americans at the AAOS 2003 annual meeting in New Orleans, have now joined the wave of enthusiasm for computer assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) as well as the exciting new vistas of Minimally Invasive Surgery.
