Histological Diagnosis of Implant-Associated Pathologies

  • The multidisciplinary aspect of the histological diagnosis (allergological, microbiological, histological, radiological, and biomechanical context)
  • A useful and practical tool for the identification of various causes of joint implant failures and their revision
  • Easy and reliable guide for the identification of particulate material in periprosthetic tissue

This guide to the histological diagnosis of periprosthetic tissue pathologies in joint arthroplasty is intended to provide a concise, yet comprehensive introduction to the host soft tissue and bone reactions to implants and their wear particulate materials. It is also a practical aid for tissue sampling and processing for the optimal pathological analysis. The target audience comprises orthopedic surgeons, either in practice or in training, as well as clinicians, radiologists, pathologists, and biomechanical engineers who are interested in understanding the details of the histological examination and report.

Clinical Management of Hip Arthroplasty
Practical Guide for the Use of Ceramic Implants

  • Ceramic implants as accepted standards for hip arthroplasty
  • Restoring the patient’s quality of life
  • Handling of ceramic implants in primary care

This book is intended to impart practical tips and information on the use of ceramic hip implants in routine clinical work in a concise and clear manner. The strong practical relevance and colorful visual material will enable clinicians to gain a rapid grasp of the most important information. The volumes of the Clinical Management Guide series are directed at orthopaedic surgeons who want to acquire information rapidly while saving as much time as possible. As a helpful advisory tool, this Pocket Guide concisely and clearly imparts the current state of knowledge on selected issues of everyday clinical practice and, in doing so, concentrates purely on the essential. In addition, it also addresses medical practitioners and scientists of adjacent specialist disciplines who are not confronted on a daily basis with problems regarding endoprosthetics but, when required, would like to access important information on a specific topic.

Metal Implant Allergy and Immuno-Allergological
Compatibility Aspects of Ceramic Materials

This pocket guide presents background information and ways to proceed in patients when an implant allergy is suspected as diagnostic criteria of hypersensitivity to metal implants are inconclusive. To rule out other diagnoses, an orthopedic examination has to take place. For the first time, a clinical algorithm has been developed for procedures in clinical practice for when an implant allergy is suspected. The algorithm is presented as a laminated loose insert. The flow chart contains additional information on the histopathological particle algorithm, according to Krenn.
