Get 21 peer-reviewed papers that cover retrieval analysis of medical implants as well as host issues that may contribute to clinical outcomes where revision is the endpoint.

Featured topics include:

– historical perspectives and unmet needs in the field including terminology, regulatory issues and future standards
– polyethylene wear assessments in specific types of total knee replacement designs, including mobile bearing and medial pivot implants
– total hip replacement devices, such as polyethylene wear, metal head bearing analyses, ceramic bearings, and modular taper analyses
– other types of devices including trauma and total elbow implants

You will also find related information on inflammatory cytokine and biomarker analyses; the need for histological staging and standard terminology; genetic related issues; imaging modality analysis of surrounding anatomy; and the need for tissue and fluid analysis that may include a repository for retrieval databases.
