Aseptic Loosening

Location: http://www.thehipclinic.co.uk/AsepticLoosening.aspx

This process occurs when tiny particles are generated at the bearing couple of a joint replacement. Since most joint replacements use polyethylene (a type of plastic) as one of the bearing surfaces, and since this is usually the softer material, most of the tiny particles will be polyethylene. The ones... Expert

Bone healing of severe acetabular defects after revision arthroplasty

Location: http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~db=all?content=10.3109/17453670902947416

Healing of acetabular bone grafts may be difficult to assess in conventional radiographs. We used PET to analyze healing of morselized bone allografts, impacted in large osteolytic acetabular defects at revision arthroplasty.
NTERPRETATION: We found PET to be a sensitive and useful method for evaluation of the spatial and temporal development...

Continuous Infusion of UHMWPE Particles Induces Increased Bone Macrophages and Osteolysis

Location: http://www.springerlink.com/content/t5q4167136772g72/fulltext.html

Questions/purposes We therefore asked (1) whether macrophages associated with polyethylene particle-induced chronic inflammation are recruited locally or systemically and (2) whether the recruited macrophages are associated with enhanced osteolysis locally.
Conclusions Infusion of clinically relevant polyethylene particles, similar to the human scenario, stimulated systemic migration of remotely injected macrophages...

Focal Osteolysis at the Junctions of a Three-Piece Modular Femoral Intramedullary Nail

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota98/otapa/OTA98502.htm

OTA poster/paper 1998 The etiology of the radiographic findings of osteolysis and periosteal reaction is not specifically known, but the presence of corrosion products at the taper junctions suggests particulate debris as a factor. There was an association between the radiographic abnormalities (osteolysis and periosteal reaction) and thigh pain and elevated...
