An in vivo study examining the functional osseointegration of smooth, rough, and porous surface topographies presenting polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK) or titanium surface chemistry.
This article was published in the following journal.
Studies on carbon fiber (CF)/ poly (ether ether ketone) (PEEK) fiber hybrid textiles were initiated several decades ago because their flexibility and conformability make them a promising alternative t...
Poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) possesses attractive mechanical and thermal properties but demonstrates poor adhesion. To overcome this disadvantage, in this study, the surface modification of PEEK or...
Acquired defects of the cranium represent a reconstructive challenge in patients with calvarial bone loss due to trauma, infection, neoplasia, congenital malformations, or other etiologies. The object...
Poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) is an alternative material to metals for orthopedic applications. However, the compatibility of PEEK with hard tissues needs to be improved. To address this issue, this...
Graft fixation with interference screws for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is a highly successful technique. Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a novel thermoplastic polymer with high b...
Comparative study between custom-made polyether ether ketone and titanium mesh for augmentation of atrophic posterior mandible.
Aim of the study: The aim is minimize morbidity in treatment of TMJ dislocation. Hypothesis: Alternate hypothesis that treatment tmj dislocation with PEEK eminoplasty will be more efficie...
The clinical performance (using the modified Ryge criteria) and patient satisfaction ( using VAS questionnaire) of pressed BioHPP PEEK based posterior single crowns compared to zirconia ba...
Radiation therapy is a cornerstone in the treatment of spinal neoplasms as radical resections are often limited anatomically. Frequently, a surgical stabilization with implants is required...
The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to assess and compare radiographic and clinical outcomes in patients who are to undergo combined interbody/posterolateral lumbar fusion p...
Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.
The systematic surveying, mapping, charting, and description of specific geographical sites, with reference to the physical features that were presumed to influence health and disease. Often associated with Hippocrates, the process became a significant part of public health investigation and epidemiological methodology, particularly between the 17th and 19th centuries. Medical topography should be differentiated from EPIDEMIOLOGY in that the former emphasizes geography whereas the latter emphasizes disease outbreaks. (Dr. James H. Cassedy, NLM History of Medicine Division)
Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.
Chemistry dealing with the composition and preparation of agents having PHARMACOLOGIC ACTIONS or diagnostic use.
One of three members of the ether-a-go-go (EAG) POTASSIUM CHANNELS gene family comprising ether-a-go-go (eag), eag-like (elk) and eag-related (erg) subfamilies. Ether-a-go-go-related gene 1 (ERG1) also known as KCNH2, encodes the pore-forming subunit of a rapidly activating-delayed rectifier potassium channel that plays an essential role in the final repolarization of ventricular action potential. Loss-of-function mutations in human hERG1 is associated with life-threatening ARRHYTHMIA.
