    Society, National Osteoporosis Foundation, North American Spine Society, and Orthopaedic Research Society Disclosure: Lilly; Aventis; Novartis; Warner Chilcott; Biomimetics; Zimmer[] OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe a novel approach for anterior cervical fixation, which uses cement augmentation in a patient with osteoporosis.[] Excerpt This first-ever Surgeon General’s Report on bone health and osteoporosis illustrates the large burden that bone disease places on our Nation and its citizens.[]

  • Replacement Arthroplasty

    Fink and colleagues 9 studied 45 Duron Cups (Zimmer, Warsaw, Ind) in 39 patients with rheumatoid arthritis.[] The results of this study suggest that long-stem cemented calcar-replacement prostheses with modern cementing technique are a reasonable option in femoral revision arthroplasties[] Other cementless materials included grit blasted titanium, titanium mesh, or the Trabecular Metal substrate made from tantalum from Zimmer, Inc.[]

  • Pathological Fracture

    […] osteosynthetic stabilization a proximal femoral antirotation nail with a spiral blade (PFNA, Synthes, Oberdorf, Switzerland) was used in two cases and cephalomedullary nail (Sirus, Zimmer[] We describe the case of cement migration from the epiphysis into the diaphysis, leading to a pathological femur fracture.[] Fractures were classified into five groups: tumor-like lesions (55), benign bone tumors (13), giant cell tumors (7), primary malignant bone tumors (28), and metastatic bone[]

  • Hip Surgery

Mayo Clin Proc 59:633-6,1984.[] Minimally invasive treatment was performed with percutaneous injection of osteoconductive cement (Cerament) to induce sclerosis and bone remodeling of the bone cyst lesion[] Abstract Aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare, non-neoplastic lesion that mostly involves the long bone and the spine, and is characterized by its expansile, vascular, and multi-cystic[]

  • Distal Femur Fracture

    Seventeen fractures were stabilized by a less invasive stabilization system (LISS, Synthes, Shanghai, PR China), and the other 2 by periarticular anatomic locked plates (Zimmer[] Cement augmentation and shape memory alloy can also be used for added mechanical stability.[] bone.[]

  • Internal Joint Prosthesis Broken

    The F.D.A. also allowed another orthopedics company, Zimmer Holdings, to sell a cup used in its unapproved hip resurfacing implant as part of a standard hip replacement.[] […] of cemented ones.[] In vertebroplasty, your surgeon will inject the bone cement directly into the weakened vertebrae via a thin tube. The cement dries very quickly to secure the fracture.[]

  • Osteoblastoma

    […] commercially derived honoraria, or other non-research-related funding (such as paid travel) from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, BrainLAB, OMEGA, Smith & Nephew, Zimmer[] The extracellular material was seen densely calcified at places with cement lines and Haversian canal formation.[] Abstract Osteoblastoma is a benign local aggressive tumor mostly localized in the vertebra or long bones. Carpal location and recurrence are extremely rare.[]

  • Shoulder Fracture

    Need a description of the implant.Implants are usually cemented in the humeral canal with cement called methylmethacrylate.[] The bones may also look like they are out of line. Treatment involves resetting the bones and limiting movement with a sling.[] The arthritic or damaged humeral head is cut and the humerus bone is hollowed out and filled with cement. A metal ball with a stem, is gently press fit into the humerus.[]
