A Clinical Evaluation of Metal Ion Release From Metal-on-Metal Cementless Total Hip Arthroplasty
A clinical Evaluation to determine metal ion release from 4th generation metal-on-metal hip articulating surfaces in cementless total hip arthroplasty.
This evaluation is being conducted to investigate the extent of metal ion release and its incorporation into the surrounding tissue resulting from metal on metal articulating surfaces in cementless total hip arthroplasty.
The amount of metallic ions released post operatively will be assessed by the concentration of Cobalt, Chromium and Molybdenum present in urine and analysed by I.C.P.M.S. (Inductive Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy). The amounts of metallic ions released will be related to the hip function and range of motion measured pre-operatively and post-operatively. Secondary performance of the metal-on-metal articulation will be determined by radiographic evaluation and incidence of complications / revision rates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.
Proteases which use a metal, normally ZINC, in the catalytic mechanism. This group of enzymes is inactivated by metal CHELATORS.
The technique of washing tissue specimens with a concentrated solution of a heavy metal salt and letting it dry. The specimen will be covered with a very thin layer of the metal salt, being excluded in areas where an adsorbed macromolecule is present. The macromolecules allow electrons from the beam of an electron microscope to pass much more readily than the heavy metal; thus, a reversed or negative image of the molecule is created.
A family of soluble metal binding proteins that are involved in the intracellular transport of specific metal ions and their transfer to the appropriate metalloprotein precursor.
Therapy of heavy metal poisoning using agents which sequester the metal from organs or tissues and bind it firmly within the ring structure of a new compound which can be eliminated from the body.
To compare clinical, functional and radiological outcome after hip resurfacing and cementless metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty.
All metal implants release metal ions because of corrosion. Total knee arthroplasty implants have large metal surface areas and therefore substantial potential for corrosion. It is planned...
This is a pilot study to compare systemic concentrations of cobalt and chromium in patients that have previously undergone total hip arthroplasties with ceramic on metal and metal on metal...
The purpose of this study is to compare metal surface finishes (proximal-coated titanium surface versus mid-coated titanium surface) on femoral components in hip arthroplasty.
The purpose of this study is to monitor the performance and compare the metal ion release of two bearing combinations, ceramic-on-metal and metal-on-metal in the treatment of patients with...
Background: Characteristically, osteonecrosis affects younger patients who typically refer to the orthopedic surgeon for the first time in the third to fifth decades of life, in the late stages of the...
PURPOSE: We aimed to test the claim of greater range of motion (ROM) with large femoral head metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty. METHODS: We compared 28-mm metal-on-polyethylene (MP) total hip arth...
This systematic review compared 2 treatments for hip disease in active young patients: modern metal-on-metal total hip resurfacing and standard total hip arthroplasty. We conducted a literature search...
Background and purpose Following metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty (THA), immunological reactions including changes in lymphocyte populations, aseptic loosening, and lymphocytic pseudotumors occur. We h...
PURPOSE: The effects of systemic metal ion exposure in patients with implants made of common prosthetic alloys continue to be a matter of concern. The aim of the study was to determine the measurement...
