Static Implant Versus Dynamic Implant in the Surgical Treatment on Ankle Syndesmosis Rupture

2014-08-27 03:14:13 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Ankle fracture is frequent and its number is increasing. In Canada, surgical treatment of these lesions is advised and the options currently used all have in common a rigid fixation of the syndesmosis which results in residual stiffness and a high level of secondary surgery, mostly to remove the implant.

The purpose of the study is to compare the treatment of ankle syndesmotic rupture by a dynamic fixation to a static fixation suggesting that the dynamic fixation method will improve the Olerud-Molander functional score of more than 15 points at the 3 months follow-up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.

Biocompatible materials usually used in dental and bone implants that enhance biologic fixation, thereby increasing the bond strength between the coated material and bone, and minimize possible biological effects that may result from the implant itself.

Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.

The plan and delineation of DENTAL IMPLANT fitting with DENTAL ABUTMENT.
