MRI of lesser metatarsophalangeal joint plantar plate tears and associated adjacent interspace lesions.

To identify the variety of second and third intermetatarsal space (IS) lesions that may coexist with and without adjacent metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) plantar plate (PP) tears.

Acute Suppression of TGF-ß with Local, Sustained Release of Tranilast against the Formation of Fibrous Capsules around Silicone Implants.

We propose the acute, local suppression of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-ß), a major profibrotic cytokine, to reduce fibrosis around silicone implants. To this end, we prepared silicone implan...

Cardan angle rotation sequence effects on first-metatarsophalangeal joint kinematics: implications for measuring hallux valgus deformity.

There currently are no recommended standards for reporting kinematics of the first-metatarsophalangeal joint. This study compared 2 different rotation sequences of Cardan angles, with implications for...

A variant neglected Type IIIA dorsal dislocation of first metatarsophalangeal joint. A case report.

We present a rare injury consisting of a neglected, irreducible, dislocation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint that was diagnosed 4 months after the injury. An open reduction was necessary from t...

What do patients know about their joint replacement implants?

Following a hip or knee replacement, patients may have little information about their prosthesis. This can lead to anxiety in the face of media reports about failing implants or misconceptions about h...

Safety and effectiveness of Natrelle™ Cohesive Round Silicone-Filled Breast Implants in women undergoing primary reconstruction or revision of existing breast implants.

Adjunct Study Protocol For Mentor H/S Silicone Gel-Filled Mammary Prostheses

This study willbe used to collect short-term (5 year) data about possible health problems associated with silicone gel implants. This data will be used to help see if the implants are both...

Study of Silicone-Associated Connective Tissue Diseases

This study will examine the possible relationship between silicone implants or injections and the connective tissue diseases scleroderma and myositis. It will explore whether certain fact...

Safety and Effectiveness of Style 410 Silicone-Filled Breast Implant Study

Safety and effectiveness of Style 410 Silicone-Filled Breast Implants in women undergoing primary augmentation, primary reconstruction, or revision of existing breast implants.

An Investigator-blind Multi-center Prospective Study for the Efficacy and Safety of Silicon Gel (Dermatix)

Silicone gel is a self-drying silicone polymer that forms thin film after application onto the skin. Because silicone film is a medical device, silicone gel is also regarded as a medical d...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Synthetic organosiloxane gels that are formed from synthetic polymers of silicone oxide with organic sidechains (polydimethylsiloxane) by lengthening the polymer chains. Unlike silicone elastomers, they are not treated with amorphous silica. They are used as fillers in breast implants.

Implants used to reconstruct and/or cosmetically enhance the female breast. They have an outer shell or envelope of silicone elastomer and are filled with either saline or silicone gel. The outer shell may be either smooth or textured.

Polymers of silicone that are formed by crosslinking and treatment with amorphous silica to increase strength. They have properties similar to vulcanized natural rubber, in that they stretch under tension, retract rapidly, and fully recover to their original dimensions upon release. They are used in the encapsulation of surgical membranes and implants.

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Abnormal swelling of the outer aspect of the fifth metatarsal head affecting the fifth METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT.
