Irreducible Fifth Metatarsophalangeal Joint after Car Crush Injury.

Metatarsophalangeal joint dislocations are uncommon injuries. Herein, an irreducible dislocation of fifth metatarsophalangeal joint with fractures on the second, third, and fourth metatarsal head was ...

A biomechanical study of the effects of simulated ulnar deviation on silicone finger joint implant failure.

Silicone finger arthroplasties are used widely, especially for metacarpophalangeal joint replacement in patients with inflammatory arthritis. Implant failure is well recognized. The rates of failure i...

Characterization of silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive episcleral implant for drug delivery.

The development of an effective sustained ocular drug delivery system remains a challenging task. The objective of the present study was to characterize a silicone pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) ep...

A Short-Term Retrospective of First Metatarsophalangeal Joint Arthrodesis Using a Plate With PocketLock Fixation.

Various techniques have been described for arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review the results of fixation for the first MTP a...

In vivo contaminant partitioning to silicone implants: Implications for use in biomonitoring and body burden.

Silicone polymers are used for a wide array of applications from passive samplers in environmental studies, to implants used in human augmentation and reconstruction. If silicone sequesters toxicants ...

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.
