An innovative Mg/Ti hybrid fixation system developed for fracture fixation and healing enhancement at load-bearing skeletal site.

Magnesium (Mg) is a potential biomaterial suitable for developing biodegradable orthopaedic implants, especially as internal fixators for fracture fixation at non-load bearing skeletal sites. However,...

Effects of elastic intramedullary nails composed of low Young's modulus Ti-Nb-Sn alloy on healing of tibial osteotomies in rabbits.

Intramedullary nailing is widely performed for internal fixation of fractures. The applicable elasticity of materials composing intramedullary nails remains unclear. The present study aimed to evaluat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of nails that are inserted into bone cavities in order to keep fractured bones together.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.
