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.
BACKGROUND: To investigate the extent and pattern of fibrovascular ingrowth of porous silicone sphere implants compared to porous polyethylene implants....
Anti-angiogenic therapy is a promising approach for the treatment of increased angiogenesis in certain diseases. We aimed to investigate the local anti-angiogenic effect of silicone implants coated wi...
The high loosening rate of the Moje prosthesis in the treatment of hallux rigidus caused disappointing medium term results. Arthrodesis using an iliac crest bone graft is the standard salvage procedur...
As first metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis is generally considered to be a successful procedure for the treatment of hallux rigidus, many surgeons question the usefulness of total joint replacemen...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiographic outcomes of primary metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis for hallux abductovalgus deformities. Between January 2004 and March 2009, 56 conse...
Safety and effectiveness of Natrelle™ Cohesive Round Silicone-Filled Breast Implants in women undergoing primary reconstruction or revision of existing breast implants.
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...
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 Implants in women undergoing primary augmentation, primary reconstruction, or revision of existing breast implants.
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...
