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.

We tested and quantified the in vitro effect of silver coating on preventing development of fungal biofilm over titanium, as found in some megaprosthesis used for musculoskeletal oncological reconstru...
In the present work, the synthesis and characterization of silver triangular nanoplates (AgNTs) and their silica coating composites are reported. Engineering control on the surface coating has demonst...
Antibacterial and osteogenic design is required for ideal orthopedic implants. The excellent antimicrobial performance of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has attracted interest for the treatment of impla...
The goal of the study was to elaborate an antibacterial silver wound dressing covered by a protective coating that would prevent silver diffusion toward skin without losing its biocide properties. The...
In the present study, we have successfully prepared tasar fibroin nanofibrous mats using 1‑butyl‑3‑methylimidazolium acetate for skin tissue engineering. The prepared tasar nanofibrous mat was f...
In this study, CE (European Conformity) marked, domestic manufactured standard orthopedic implants will be used after silver HA coating with electrospray method in 30 patients requiring hi...
Urinary catheters are used routinely in the postoperative care of urogynecology patients after surgery involving the genitourinary tract. However, Urinary tract infections(UTI) associated ...
Silver nitrate treatment of Bartholin's cyst or abscess will be compared to marsupialization treatment. It is expected that silver nitrate treatment is effective, simple, inexpensive and ...
This study is being conducted to test whether the use of diammine silver fluoride (also called silver diamine fluoride) hardens the cavity sufficiently so that it arrests.
Modern knee implants combine several types of metal and therefore potentially expose patients to different metal ions. Titanium niobium nitride coating (TiNbN) acts like a physical barrie...
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
