Currently, autogenous tissue is the most commonly used substitute for ACL reconstruction because its immunogenicity is virtually nonexistent. However, the functional amount of autogenous tissue available for(More)
STUDY DESIGN An in vitro biomechanical study. OBJECTIVES To simulate a severe compressive flexion injury for determination of the relative stability of different anterior instrumentation systems in a porcine model and to validate this model in human cadaveric specimens. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Anterior plate fixation is useful for high-grade(More)
The potential cytotoxicity on vascular smooth muscle cells of corrosion products from 316 L stainless steel, one of most popular biomaterials of intravascular stents, has not been highlighted. In this investigation, 316 L stainless steel wires were corroded in Dulbecco's modified eagle's medium with applied constant electrochemical breakdown voltage, and(More)
Biological materials have been used as prosthetic devices such as heart valves, vascular grafts, and pericardial patches. These biological materials have to be fixed with crosslinking reagents and sterilized subsequently before they can be implanted in humans. Recently, a new crosslinking reagent, epoxy compound, has been used to fix bioprostheses. In this(More)
Electronic and Electrical wastes specifically know as E-waste is growing at a very high rate throughout the world but especially in developing countries like India. It is predicted that India is likely to generate about 52 million tons of E-waste in 2020 which will be about 40% of the entire E-waste generated in the world at that time. The following article(More)
