STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of a single-implant-retained mandibular overdenture for elderly patients with edentulism. However, due to the high concentration of stress around the housing portion of the single implant, this prosthesis tends to fracture at the anterior region more than the 2-implant-retained mandibular overdenture. PURPOSE: The purpose of this finite-element analysis study was to evaluate the stress distribution in a single-implant-retained mandibular overdenture reinforced with a cobalt-chromium framework, to minimize the incidence of denture base fracture...

Abdominal wall hernias are a rare but important consequence of blunt trauma. The optimal timing and the method of repair are not well described in the current surgical literature. Advances in laparoscopic techniques have offered new options for treatment of this problem. We describe the case of a 43-year-old man who suffered a blunt traumatic lumbar hernia. He was taken to the operating room during his initial hospitalization where a laparoscopic repair was performed with the additional implantation of prosthetic mesh...

INTRODUCTION: Pelvic organ prolapse can significantly reduce quality of life of affected women, with many cases requiring corrective surgery. The rate of recurrence is relatively high after conventional prolapse surgery. In recent years, alloplastic meshes have increasingly been implanted to stabilize the pelvic floor, which has led to considerable improvement of anatomical results. But the potential for mesh-induced risks has led to a controversial discussion on the use of surgical meshes in urogynecology...

The biocompatibility of prosthetic mesh is dependent on a number of physicochemical properties that ultimately incite an optimal foreign body response (FBR). The magnitude and character of the FBR directly affect the clinical success of the hernia repair, with too little scar resulting in bulge or hernia recurrence and too much scar causing mesh wrinkling and pain. Moreover, it is important to consider the effect of a sustained FBR and scar remodeling on the combined strength of the mesh-tissue construct over time...

REVIEW
D G Petlin, S I Tverdokhlebov, Y G Anissimov
One of the most actively developing fields in modern medicine is controlled drug delivery, an ability to keep optimal concentration of a drug at the desired body location. In particular, the most attention for potential use as drug delivery vehicles is drawn towards biodegradable polymeric materials. This is due to the versatility of tools for their fabrication, as well as due to the need to extract them after implantation being eliminated. In order to enhance polymer characteristics in terms of biocompatibility their surface can be functionalized...

Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting techniques can be used for the fabrication of personalized, regenerative constructs for tissue repair. The current article provides insight into the potential and opportunities of 3D bioprinting for the fabrication of cartilage regenerative constructs. Although 3D printing is already used in the orthopedic clinic, the shift toward 3D bioprinting has not yet occurred. We believe that this shift will provide an important step forward in the field of cartilage regeneration. Three-dimensional bioprinting techniques allow incorporation of cells and biological cues during the manufacturing process, to generate biologically active implants...

Hernia repair is usually accompanied with the implantation of a synthetic mesh, which frequently results in a foreign body response and serious complications. In the present study, a novel biodegradable chitin-based hernia patch was prepared and characterized. Biomechanical properties and biodegradability of the chitin patch were quantified in vitro and in vivo. In repair of the rat abdominal wall full-thickness defect model, the chitin patch induced more abundant new blood vessels with milder tissue inflammation and fibrosis compared with polypropylene mesh...

Percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect (ASD) has emerged as an alternative to surgery. A 54-yearold woman with a history of percutaneous ASD closure with a 30-mm Cardia Ultrasept septal occluder (Cardia Inc., Eagan, MN, USA) comprising 2 discs made of Nitinol wire mesh covered with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) membrane, was admitted to the hospital with unstable angina pectoris. In a routine examination, transthoracic echocardiography revealed a left-to-right shunt through the device. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) also demonstrated significant left-to-right shunt through the central portion of the prosthesis...
