The aim of this systematic review is to provide an overview of finite element analyses comparing standard and short dental implants concerning biomechanical properties and to detect the most relevant ...
Recently, interspinous stabilization with the interspinous process device (IPD) has become an alternative to treat lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). The biomechanical influence of different design feature...
We applied a previously established and validated numerical model to a novel short-stemmed implant for a 'pre-launch' investigation.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical effects of temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) on the mandibular dentition and mandible during total arch distalization according to lo...
Keratoconus is recognized by asymmetrical thinning and bulging of the cornea, resulting a distortion in the surface of the cornea. Keratoconus also alters the biomechanical properties of the cornea, w...
This project is aiming at the integration of a biomechanical computer program with a guidance code to simulate the endovascular repair (EVAR) procedure of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). ...
Introduction: Kinetic, kinematic and electromyographic activity of the lower limb have been shown to be influenced by various footwear-generated biomechanical manipulations (e.g. soles. In...
In recent years, short femoral stems have been introduced. Short stems are designed based on traditional stems with good clinical results. The assumed benefit of short stems is that they a...
The goal of this proposal is two-fold: (1) to further develop and validate a technology, magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), for quantitatively imaging mechanical properties and tension...
Whereas much information is known about the properties of bone in primary hyperparathyroidism, a disorder of parathyroid hormone (PTH) excess, virtually nothing is known about the skeleton...
A computer based method of simulating or analyzing the behavior of structures or components.
A cytologic technique for measuring the functional capacity of tumor stem cells by assaying their activity. It is used primarily for the in vitro testing of antineoplastic agents.
Beryllium. An element with the atomic symbol Be, atomic number 4, and atomic weight 9.01218. Short exposure to this element can lead to a type of poisoning known as BERYLLIOSIS.
A metallic element of atomic number 30 and atomic weight 65.38. It is a necessary trace element in the diet, forming an essential part of many enzymes, and playing an important role in protein synthesis and in cell division. Zinc deficiency is associated with ANEMIA, short stature, HYPOGONADISM, impaired WOUND HEALING, and geophagia. It is known by the symbol Zn.
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthroplasty Joint Disorders Orthopedics Spinal Cord Disorders Orthopedics is the science or practice of correcting deformities caused by disease or damage to the bones and joints of the skeleton. This specialized branch of surgery may ...
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...
