Sample text

The articulations were revised to articulations from ceramic-UHMWPE (6x), metal-UHMWPE(lOx), ceramic-ceramic (Ix). Intraoperatively, 12 patients had macroscopically a pronounced metallosis. After revision, the patients were free of symptoms. Retrieval analysis The 16 periprosthetic tissues showed only a mild foreign body reaction to wear particles from the implant materials. Nevertheless, varying numbers of mono- and multinuclear macrophages were found mainly next to vessels in all cases. 0 MQ/g tissue.

Am. 82(4): 455-6, 2000 New Developments in the Basic Science of Ceramics and Other Alternative Bearings Can Metal-Metal Total Hip Arthroplasty Induce Hypersensitivity reactions? C. H, Lohmann Abstract Metal/metal articulations made from Cobalt-Chromium-Molybdenunn (CoCrMo) alloys have been re-introduced more than 15 years ago.

Cytotoxic, genotoxic and ollergological effects of wear debris and metal ions [1,5,6,7,8] are mostly investigated. It is hovs^ever unclear to which extent allergic (hyperergic) mechanisms lead to implant intolerance reactions. In some patients, localized or generalized eczema, local swelling, recurrent urticaria or even aseptic implant loosening have been described as result of hypersensitivity to implant components [2,4,9,10,11,12,13]. This seems to be a rather rare event as compared to the nickel, cobalt or chromium sensitisation rates in the general population ranging between 2 - 10% [14,15,16].
