The Endolog device consists of an implant that is placed in the bone of the big toe to correct the deviation and stabilize the toe in its correct position.
The Endolog implant is a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery, as it is performed through a small incision in the skin and does not require bone removal.
Low back pain is considered a multidimensional and multifactorial condition; Physical, biomechanical, physiological and personal factors contribute to its incidence. The aim of this study is to review the literature on the prevalence, mechanical etiologies, and consequences of low back pain for traumatic lower extremity amputees.
Bioventus LLC is currently conducting a non-interventional observational study to demonstrate the ability of the Bone Healing System (EXOGEN) to mitigate the incidence of delayed union in patients with risk factors. The BONES (Bioventus Observational Non-interventional EXOGEN Studies) study has a unique design and was executed under the supervision and support of the FDA.
Ambulation Ability and Quality of Life in Subjects With Transfemoral Amputation: A Comparison Between Osseointegration and Socket Prostheses
Despite advances in reducing the friction and load-bearing drawbacks of socket prostheses, chronic skin problems continue to affect 1/3 of transfemoral amputees using this type of artificial limb.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) Maintains Previous Recommendation for EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System
Bioventus has received notice from the United Kingdom's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) regarding the indication of EXOGEN for the treatment of nonunions of long bones.
EXOGEN uses Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (LIPUS) to stimulate the physiological process of bone healing and enhance fracture healing. It has a healing rate of 86% in nonunions and accelerates the healing of fresh fractures by 38%.
This study compares femoral diaphyseal fracture consolidation between a group of healthy rats (n=15), a group of rats with Diabetes Mellitus (n=15) and a group of rats with Diabetes Mellitus treated with LIPUS low-frequency ultrasound. intensity (n=15).
The following parameters were taken: PCR and ELISA for the measurement of growth factors, Histomorphometry to evaluate the formation of cartilage and Immunohistochemistry to show the neovascularization of the fracture site.
Vall d'Hebron performs implants in the femur that allow a prosthesis to be put on and removed with a click.
Jose Bellart, 73, was the first of the three patients operated on in a one-time osseointegration surgery program at the Vall D'Hebron Hospital promoted by surgeon Dr. Pablo Corona.
Dr. Pablo Corona is interviewed in the program 'En directo' of RNE Canal 4 explaining the process of osseointegration surgery implanted in Spain for the first time in a single time.
Next, you can listen to the interview on the 'En Directo' program of (RNE) Radio 4 conducted with Dr. Pablo Corona on January 30, 2020, about the osseointegration surgery in a single stage performed at the Vall D'Hebron Hospital .
Risk Factors for Pseudarthrosis in Patients with Intracapsular Femoral Neck Fractures with Three Cannulated Screws Positioned in Triangular or Inverted Triangular Configuration.
Femoral neck fractures are associated with a high rate of nonunion. In this study, the risk factors that influence the progression to nonunion in patients treated with parallel cannulated screws positioned in a triangular configuration (one proximal + two distal) or inverted triangle (two proximal + one distal) are evaluated.
In patients with lower extremity amputation, osseointegration allows better mobility than conventional socket prostheses and few cases of periprosthetic fractures have been found.
Of the 518 osseointegration interventions performed between 2010 and 2018, 22 presented periprosthetic fractures (4.2%) and removal of the implant was not necessary in any case. It was found that the majority of fractures occurred due to a fall and that 86% occurred within 2 cm of the proximal tip of the implant.
