This represents the first systematic study where levan polysaccharide was used to fabricate fibrous matrices by co-axial and single-needle electrospinning techniques. For this, hydrolyzed (hHL) and sulfated hydrolyzed (ShHL) Halomonas levan were chemically synthesized and used together with polycaprolactone (PCL) and polyethyleneoxide (PEO) for the spinning process. In co-axially spun matrices, ultimate tensile strength (UTS) were found to increase with increasing ShHL concentration and elongation at break of PCL + ShHL matrices increased up to ten-fold when compared to PCL matrices...

BACKGROUND: Glutaraldehyde fixed xenogeneic heart valve prosthesis are hindered by calcification and lack of growth potential. The aim of tissue decellularization is to remove tissue antigenicity, avoiding the use of glutaraldehyde and improve valve integration with low inflammation and host cell recolonization. In this preliminary study, we investigated the efficacy of a NaOH-based process for decellularization and biocompatibility improvement of porcine pulmonary heart valves in comparison to a detergent-based process (SDS-SDC0, 5%)...

Many amputees who wear a leg prosthesis develop significant skin wounds on their residual limb. The exact cause of these wounds is unclear as little work has studied the interface between the prosthetic device and user. Our research objective was to develop a quantitative method for assessing displacement patterns of the gel liner during walking for patients with transtibial amputation. Using a reflective marker system and a custom clear socket, evaluations were conducted with a clear transparent test socket mounted over a plaster limb model and a deformable limb model...

Paravalvular leaks are common following valve replacement surgery. Majority are benign and do not require any active intervention. However, occasionally severe paravalvular regurgitation can produce heart failure and/or hemolysis, needing closure of the defect. It is more commonly associated with aortic and mitral prosthesis, symptomatic tricuspid paravalvular regurgitation being a rare entity. In this report we present the successful percutaneous transcatheter closure of a large paravalvular tricuspid regurgitation in a 59-year old lady with history of multiple previous operations...

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis is a refractory disease that is difficult to predictably treat. This study evaluated the prognosis of using standard alloplastic TMJ prostheses for the treatment of TMJ ankylosis in Chinese patients with severe mandibular deficiency. Patients treated from 2013 to 2015 were reviewed. The computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) technique was used to guide bony mass removal and locate the TMJ prosthesis (Biomet, USA). Eleven patients were included in this study. All prostheses were successfully installed and stabilized intraoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Tuberosity repair in shoulder fracture prosthesis implantation still remains a challenge often leading to poor functional outcomes, despite a variety of materials and suggested suture patterns. We aimed to evaluate, which forces currently used suture and cerclage materials withstand and to assess whether they are useful with regard to stability of reconstruction of tuberosities and which failure modes they display. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Using sheep infraspinatus tendons with attached tuberosities three different suture materials (suture 1: Ethibond size 2; suture 2: Orthocord size 2; suture 3: Fiberwire size 5) and a 0...

A ready-made, acellular patch-type prosthesis is desirable in repairing partial tracheal defects in the clinical setting. However, many of these prostheses may not show proper biological integration and biomechanical function when they are transplanted. In this study, we developed a novel 3D printed polyurethane (PU) tracheal scaffold with micro-scale architecture to allow host tissue infiltration and adequate biomechanical properties to withstand physiological tracheal condition. A half-pipe shaped PU scaffold (1...

PURPOSE: Physiological elongation and orientation of patellar tendon fibres are among the scopes of total knee arthroplasty, but little is known in the three dimensions. The study aims to assess in vitro these variations at the intact and replaced knee, with and without patellar resurfacing. It was hypothesised that fibre patterns differ before and after prosthesis implantation, and between specific prosthesis designs. It was also expected that patellar resurfacing would affect relevant results...

HYPOTHESIS: Prosthesis' length creates tension in ossicular reconstructions, which directly effects the middle ear sound transmission. BACKGROUND: Relatively long prostheses are often used to stabilize the middle ear reconstruction to prevent dislocation. Thereby, tension on the flexible components such as the tympanic membrane (TM) and the annular ligament (AL) is increased. Only little is known on the amount of displacement-related stiffening of the TM and AL, as well as the consecutive reduction in middle ear transfer function (METF)...

Fibrolipomas are an infrequent type of lipomas. We describe a case of a man suffering from subcutaneous penile fibrolipoma, who twelve months earlier has been submitted to augmentative phalloplasty due to aesthetic dysmorphophobia. The same patient three years earlier has been submitted to three-component hydraulic penile prostheses implantation due to erectile dysfunction. After six months from removing of the mass, the penile elongation and penile enlargement were stable, the prostheses were correctly functioning and the patient was satisfied with his sexual intercourse and life...

A method has been developed to induce and retain a contractile phenotype for vascular smooth muscle cells, as the first step towards the development of a biomimetic blood vessel construct with minimal compliance mismatch. Melt spun PCL fibers were deposited on a mandrel to form aligned fibers of 10 μm in diameter. The fibers were bonded into aligned arrangement through dip coating in chitosan solution. This formed a surface of parallel grooves, 10 μm deep by 10 μm across, presenting a surface layer of chitosan to promote cell surface interactions...

The lateral occipitotemporal cortex (LOTC) contains subregions differentially responding to specific object categories, such as body parts and tools. This selectivity may relate to action knowledge, rather than visual properties of the objects. Prosthetic limbs share different commonalities with hands and tools (in terms of both visual and action features). Specifically, cosmetic prostheses look like hands, but can be used as tools (elongate the stump), whereas functional prostheses ("hook") do not resemble hands, but can be used as such (e...
