Serum Metal Ion Concentration After Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)

2014-08-27 03:23:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

All metal implants release metal ions because of corrosion. Total knee arthroplasty implants have large metal surface areas and therefore substantial potential for corrosion. It is planned to compare changes in serum levels of metal ions in patients after implantation of cemented unconstrained total knee arthroplasty covered with or without a passivating surface. Serum concentrations of chromium, cobalt, molybdenum and nickel will be analyzed and compared between the two groups, as well as with those of 130 control patients without implants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Replacement of the knee joint.

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)

Partial or total replacement of a joint.

Partial or total replacement of one or more FINGERS, or a FINGER JOINT.

An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
