The Zimmer knee implants are used in knee replacement surgeries to give patients relief from problems of knee joints. Zimmer offers a minimally invasive solution through many Zimmer knee components. They have been developed as per requirements for minimally invasive surgery. Zimmer MIS Solutions are designed to facilitate implantation through a smaller incision so that muscles and tendons around the knee are not damaged.
knee implants have to be stronger and more flexible than ever before. Advanced materials can help create better performing, longer lasting implants.The metal parts of the knee implant are traditionally made of a cobalt chrome-based alloy and the plastic parts are made of a high-density polyethylene. Every time metal rubs against plastic, the friction creates microscopic particles which result in wear on the implant
A knee revision procedure involves removing and replacing a partial or total knee implant with a new implant. It can be a complex surgical procedure that may require extensive preoperative planning, specialized implants and tools, and a skilled surgeon experienced in difficult surgical techniques.1 With over 580,000 knee replacements performed annually in the United States, 90% […]
Researchers from Duke University have used a $300 3D printer together with a special hydrogel material to create life-like knee implants. The group has attempted to address the large number of meniscus knee injuries that are notoriously difficult to treat.Damage to the meniscus cartilage is the most common knee injury in the United States and the Duke researchers explains that
