Osseointegration is an area of medicine that has resulted from a greater understanding of how to unite bone and metal. In this medical handbook, Branemark (Branemark Osseointegration Center, Sweden), one of the pioneers of the field, presents 25 chapters covering the history, principles, and current state of the art of osseointegration in facial re

This ground-breaking title begins with an introductory overview of the Lower Extremity Gait Systems (LEGS) project, identifying concerns and observations as context for the reader to consider topics and challenges detailed in later chapters. Next are chapters that explore relevant military and civilian needs, and an essential historical context of the capabilities and limitations of contemporary prosthetics. The section concludes with an overview of essential components used in passive and active lower limb prosthetics, including sockets, foot, ankle, and knee systems, as well as emerging bionic systems. A second section considers research and development in orthotics, synthetic and biological materials, volitional control, and wearable robotics (also known as exoskeletons). Finally, expert authors explore advanced science and emerging medical perspectives in research related to limb salvage, osseointegration, limb transplantation, and tissue engineering. Designed for medical practitioners, engineers, students, and researchers who use or develop prosthetic technology for civilian or military amputees, Full Stride: Advancing the State of the Art in Lower Extremity Gait Systems will be of great interest to trauma specialists, orthopedists, rehabilitation specialists, nursing staff and physical therapists, as well as researchers and scientists who specialize in fields that shape and inform advanced prosthetic device development such as materials sciences, engineering (electrical, mechanical, biomedical), robotics, and human physiology.

Stay on the cutting edge of implant dentistry for the edentulous patient! Written by Dr. Edmond Bedrossian, one of only a few specialists doing zygoma implants, Treatment Planning for the Fully Endentulous Patient: A Graftless Approach to Immediate Loading covers the latest advances in implants, products, and techniques. The book discusses the broader issues of working with the edentulous patient, then describes 1-stage and 2-stage protocols, immediate loading, and the graftless approach. Also included are insightful discussions of case studies and coverage of new software that helps to improve outcomes in treatment planning and surgery. Over 1,000 full-color illustrations depict implant techniques and products. Coverage of the Graftless Approach includes two concepts: 1) the anterior tilted implant, and 2) the zygoma implant, each eliminating the need for grafts and producing an implant site less prone to infection and with a quicker healing time. A Computer Guided Surgery chapter covers the latest software developed for treatment planning, creating the surgical template, laboratory procedures, and fabrication of the prosthetics. Case presentations on immediate loading tilted implants and zygoma implants appear at the end of the book, each a beginning-to-end study from Dr. Bedrossian’s own archives. Coverage of broader issues related to the edentulous patient includes a discussion of special needs, demographics, and the systemic pretreatment of these patients including bone composites and overall esthetic and functional goals.

Der Knochen ist ein Organ und wurde lange Zeit nicht so gesehen. Ein Gelenk ist ein äußerst komplexes Organ und wird bis heute nicht so gesehen. Dieses Buch, an dem viele Experten mitgewirkt haben, hat das Ziel Mechanik, Materialien und Biologie zu verbinden und das heutige Wissen auf diesen faszinierenden Arbeitsfeldern in ihrer Interaktion darzustellen. Die Idee spongiöse-trabeculäre Strukturen zu schaffen, um eine knöcherne Integration von Implantaten zu erreichen, stammt von Henßge, Hanslik und Grundei und wurde Schritt für Schritt in den letzten 3 Jahrzehnten entwickelt. Auch von meinem akademischen Lehrer Hipp wurde die biologische Potenz dieses Lösungsansatzes erkannt und aktiv mitbegleitet. An der Entwicklung waren viele Kliniker und Grundlagenforscher verschiedenster Richt- gen – Ingenieure, Chemiker, Physiker, Biologen, Mathematiker, Informatiker, Anatomen u.a. – beteiligt. Was hat all diese Leute zusammengeführt? Die Idee! Was hat sie weiterarbeiten lassen an einem wissenschaftlich nicht eindeutig beschriebenen aber lebenden Projekt? Die Überz- gung und das Erleben, dass es geht! Die heute vorliegenden 17-Jahres-Ergebnisse im Bereich der Hüftendoprothetik, welche bei über 93% der eingebrachten Hüftendoprothesenstiele eine knöcherne stabile Integration na- weisen, sind weltweit unerreicht. Die heutzutage zur Verfügung stehenden weiterentwickelten Implantate lassen eine weitere Steigerung dieser exzellenten Ergebnisse erwarten. Wir sind der dauerhaften Integration eines Fremdmaterials in den menschlichen Körper zumindest sehr nahe gekommen, wahrscheinlich haben wir dies bereits jetzt erreicht. Die Diskussion über die Entfernbarkeit eines knöchern integrierten Implantates ist eine Scheindiskussion, die an dem Ziel der dauerhaften Versorgung unserer Patienten vorbeigeht.

Er hatte gedacht, am Bau eines Paradieses auf Erden mitgewirkt zu haben – und jetzt steht er deshalb vor dem «Sonder-Kriegsgericht» der Putschisten, die das Paradies alles andere als paradiesisch gefunden haben ... Bei den Prozeßakten liegt die Aufzeichnung eines Gesprächs: ‹Da fällt mir eines unserer nächtlichen Gespräche ein, das wir vor langer Zeit einmal geführt haben. Ich fragte: Aber was ist denn die Absicht? Du antwortetest: Sich einen Staat zu schaffen. Ich fragte: Und was sollen wir damit anfangen? Du sagtest: Wir wollen ihn zu einem Land machen, in dem Leute wie wir und andere Menschen sich wohl fühlen. Ich fragte: Was meinst du damit – sich wohl fühlen? Du sagtest: Ganz einfach, daß es Freude macht zu arbeiten, Menschen um sich herum zu haben, die einen verstehen und einen mögen, natürlich auch genügend Lebensmittel und Wohnraum zu haben, all das, was man haben zu müssen meint; daß man selbst dem Leben einen Sinn und ein Ziel gibt und um sich herum andere sieht, denen es ebenso geht. Ich fragte: Und was sollen wir damit anfangen, wenn wir es geschaffen haben? Du sagtest: Darin leben. Ich fragte: Ist das der ganze Sinn unserer Arbeit für diese Insel, die wir vermutlich niemals bekommen werden? Du sagtest: Diese Insel, die wir sicher bekommen werden, was du ebensogut weißt wie ich, ist eine natürliche, selbständige Einheit, die muß frei und unabhängig sein. Ich sagte: Na klar, das ist der Sinn des Ganzen.› Sie haben geglaubt, es sei um etwas gegangen, das es nicht gibt: um die Verwirklichung einer Utopie. Jetzt auf alle Fälle geht es nur um eines: um Macht.

Erstmals wird in diesem Buch ein neues, minimal-invasives Behandlungsverfahren beschrieben, das bei osteoporotischen, traumatischen oder tumorösen Veränderungen der Wirbelsäule indiziert ist. Die Technik wird in einfachen Schritten erklärt, um einen breiten, interdisziplinären Interessentenkreis zu erreichen. Da der Schwerpunkt der Technik die Osteoporose betrifft, ist auch ein spezielles Kapitel der unbedingt notwendigen Begleitmedikation gewidmet. Die neue Operationstechnik wird auch mit Alternativen zur Kyphoplastie verglichen. Ferner wird ein neuartiges Nachbehandlungskonzept speziell für die dargestellte Technik eingeführt und erklärt. Abschließend werden Listen über Referenzzentren und Abrechnungsziffern für die Krankenkassen für die deutschsprachigen Länder angeführt. Die Autoren sind seit Jahren Instruktoren für die beschriebene Operationstechnik und haben in den letzten Jahren diese neuen Methoden an verschiedenen Krankenhäusern und Universitäten in Europa gelehrt und durchgeführt.

Im Unterschied zur ästhetischen Chirurgie konzentriert sich die plastische Chirurgie auf die Korrektur und Wiederherstellung von Substanzdefekten und Funktionen. Die ästhetische Chirurgie dagegen hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, die Altersveränderungen zu reduzieren bzw., wenn möglich, zu beseitigen, um letztlich das Aussehen zu verbessern. Diese Aufgabenteilung zwischen ästhetischer und plastischer Chirurgie und das zunehmende Interesse und Bedürfnis an ästhetisch-chirurgischen Eingriffen in der allgemeinen Bevölkerung und bei operativ tätigen Ärzten, führten zur Planung des jetzt vorliegenden Werkes. In dem Buch werden schwerpunktmäßig ästhetisch plastisch durchgeführte Standardoperationen aller Körperregionen beschrieben, die sich in der täglichen Routine bewährt haben. Ziel ist es, dem an diesem Fach interessierten Arzt Prinzipien und Grundlagen zu vermitteln sowie das operative Vorgehen praxisnah zu erläutern.
