Joint replacement has been one of the major successes of modern medicine. Its continued success depends on effective collaboration between clinicians and researchers across many different areas in science and medicine. This important book brings together the wide range of research in this area and its implications for clinical practice. The book sets the scene with introductory chapters on joint biomechanics and tribology, materials for joint replacement and their interactions with the body, and regulatory issues. Part two reviews the use of metals and ceramics as joint replacement materials, joint design, bone cements and cementless fixation techniques, failure mechanisms and ways of predicting the lifetime of replacement joints. The third part of the book summarises research on how prosthetic joints interact with the body, including biological causes of joint failure, sterilisation techniques and the use of drug delivery systems to enhance joint replacement. The final group of chapters reviews key issues in replacing particular joints including the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow as well as developments in intervertebral disc and tempero-mandibular joint replacement technology. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Joint replacement technology is a standard reference for the engineering and materials scientific communities, as well as surgeons seeking the best treatment for their patients.

Most developed countries are struggling to finance first-class health care for everyone in their community, leading to renewed emphasis on appropriate and equitable provision of health care, placing interventions that are both high in volume and expense under the microscope. This book provides readers with an understanding of the key issues that dictate the provision of total hip replacement, one of the most cost-effective procedures available within health care. A highlight of the book is its multinational and multidisciplinary approach presenting perspectives from public health, individual patients and doctors, economists and health care purchasers and managers.

This is the first text that deals specifically with TMJ TJR. Each chapter is authored by either a basic science researcher or clinician known for their interest and expertise in this field. The text provides the reader with state-of-the-art analysis of all aspects of total temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJ TJR), starting with cutting-edge evidence on the biomechanics of the TMJ. The intriguing history of TMJ TJR is presented to provide an understanding of why some prior TMJ TJR devices failed and how what was learned from those failures has led to the improvements exhibited in present TMJ TJR devices. Expert chapters discuss both stock and custom designs, their indications and contraindications, primary operative techniques, combined TMJ TJR and orthognathic surgical techniques, and the devices' adaption for use as segmental or total mandibular replacement devices after ablative surgery. Clinical outcomes and avoidance as well as management of complications are detailed. Numerous helpful illustrations and radiographs are presented to assist readers in understanding and carrying out the described procedures. Important evidence from both the orthopedic and TMJ TJR literature relating to material sensitivity and mechanical wear will be reported. Finally, the role bioengineered tissue may hold for the future of TMJ TJR will be discussed.

Advances in Artificial Hip and Knee Joint Technology

Implantable jOint prostheses which have been under development for more than 25 years, are today being used with success in the rehabilitation of many cases, including patients with extremely severe joint pathology. However, artificial joint designs still pose problems with respect to their function, anchoring, materials employed and the interaction of the prosthesis with the surrounding biological tissues. Some of these problems are associated with considerable therapeutic complications. Further improvement in the artificial joint requires the application of all the modern experimental and research techniques and the close cooperation of medical doctors, engineers and scientists. The International Symposium on Advances in Artificial Hip and Knee Joint Technology held at Erlangen on October 30 and 31, 1975 under the auspices of the Societas Physica Medica Erlangensis, had as its aim the promotion of just this interdisciplinary cooperation. One of the traditional objectives of the Societas has been the advancement of diagnosis and therapy by the adaptation of medical skill to modern technology and scientific engineering concepts. The major objective of this volume is to present, in expanded form, the lectures given by internationally recognized scientists and clinical researchers in the field of artificial joints in the locomotor system, and to make that information available to a wider public. The experience discussed covers the principles and primary methods of joint replacement.

"Take away my knee pain and give me better motion". This is what the arthritic patient expects from a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). By virtue of standardization of the TKA procedure, surgeons can nowadays solve the pain issue for the majority of the patients. Restoration of function is a goal of a different order and forms the scope of this book. The editors confronted today's leading knee surgeons with the limitations of current surgical techniques and technology. They challenged them to define new thresholds of functional capacity after Total Knee Arthroplasty. "A Guide to Get Better Performance in TKA" describes the cutting edge in surgical techniques, prosthetic design and achievement of excellent function for these patients.

This state-of-the-art book focuses specifically on the current and emerging uses of robotics for knee and hip arthroplasty, with an expanding market anticipated, particularly as costs drop, data emerges and surgical efficiencies improve. It is divided into four main sections. Part one covers the background and basic principles of robotics in orthopedic surgery, discussing its history and evolution, current concepts and available technologies, perioperative protocols for recovery and pain management, economic considerations, and risks and complications. The second and third parts focus on the techniques themselves for the knee and hip respectively, including unicompartmental and bicompartmental knee arthroplasty, patellofemoral arthroplasty, and total knee and hip arthroplasty utilizing Navio, Mako, iThink, Omni and ROSA Knee robots. The final section presents the emerging use of robotics in spine surgery as well as for hospital process improvement. Presenting the most current techniques, technology and evidence, Robotics in Knee and Hip Arthroplasty will be a valuable resource for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows looking to implement and utilize these developing management strategies in their clinical practice.

This book is written for the users and designers of joint replacements. In its second extended edition it conveys to the reader the knowledge accumulated by the authors during their forty year effort on the development of replacement devices for the lower limb for the purpose of aiding the reader in their design and evaluation of joint replacement devices. The early chapters describe the engineering, scientific and medical principles needed for replacement joint evaluation. One must understand the nature and performance of the materials involved and their characteristics in vivo, i.e. the response of the body to implant materials. It is also essential to understand the response of the implants to applied loading and motion, particularly in the hostile physiological environment. A chapter describes the design methodology now required for joint replacement in the USA and EU countries. The remaining chapters provide a history of joint replacement, an evaluation of earlier and current devices and sample case histories of some of the authors’ devices. The present second edition includes various additional case reports as well as a new chapter devoted to the shoulder. Drs. Buechel, an orthopaedic surgeon, and Pappas, a professor of Mechanical Engineering, are the designers of several successful joint replacement systems. The most well-known of these is the pioneering LCS knee replacement.
