OBJECTIVE The study aims to compare the stress shielding effects of implantable anatomical and traditional prostheses after in vitro total hip joint replacement simulation. The study serves as a biomechanical basis for novel artificial prostheses and for clinical hip joint replacements. METHODS Sixteen femoral specimens from adult male corpses were(More)
Medical-grade synthetic poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) polymer can be used as a biomaterial for nerve repair because of its good biocompatibility, biodegradability and adjustable degradation rate. The stress relaxation and creep properties of peripheral nerve can be greatly improved by repair with poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) tubes. Ten sciatic nerve(More)
Osteosarcoma is a common type of malignant bone tumor with features of osteoid formation or osteolytic lesions of bone. New therapeutic approaches are urgently needed since it lacks response to chemotherapeutic treatments. Saurolactam, a natural compound isolated from the aerial portions of Saururus chinensis, was reported to have an anti-inflammatory(More)
