Silver coating on tumour prostheses.

Summary of "Silver coating on tumour prostheses."

Modular endoprostheses, so-called "tumour or megaprostheses" are mainly used for limb salvage surgery after resection of malignant soft tissue or a bone tumour. Sometimes, this type of prosthesis is also used for revision surgeries after failed primary joint arthroplasty. Despite continuously improving techniques and quality management systems, periprosthetic infection is one of the most serious complications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Silver. An element with the atomic symbol Ag, atomic number 47, and atomic weight 107.87. It is a soft metal that is used medically in surgical instruments, dental prostheses, and alloys. Long-continued use of silver salts can lead to a form of poisoning known as ARGYRIA.

The use of silver, usually silver nitrate, as a reagent for producing contrast or coloration in tissue specimens.

A biocompatible, hydrophilic, inert gel that is permeable to tissue fluids. It is used as an embedding medium for microscopy, as a coating for implants and prostheses, for contact lenses, as microspheres in adsorption research, etc.

Inorganic compounds that contain silver as an integral part of the molecule.

A silver salt with powerful germicidal activity. It has been used topically to prevent OPHTHALMIA NEONATORUM.
