Total joint replacement procedure projections 2030 to 2060

Total joint replacement (TJR) is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the United States, and the volume of primary and revision total joint replacement procedures have increased consistently in past decade. New research presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) analyzed models to predict the … Continue reading Total joint replacement procedure projections 2030 to 2060

Development of thin-film biomaterials using nanofibres to be used as scaffolding for bone regeneration

In future, it may be possible to use nanofibres to improve the attachment of bone implants, or the fibres may be used directly to scaffold bone regeneration. This would aid the healing of fractures and may enable the care of osteoporosis. This is detailed in a new dissertation.Hydroxyapatite nanofibre film produced at the University of … Continue reading Development of thin-film biomaterials using nanofibres to be used as scaffolding for bone regeneration
