Visualization of USPIO-labeled melt-electrowritten scaffolds by non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging

Melt electrowriting (MEW) is a high-resolution fiber-forming technology for the digital fabrication of complex micro-structured scaffolds for tissue engineering, which has convincingly shown its potential in in vitro and in vivo animal studies. The clinical translation of such constructs to the patient requires the capability to visualize them upon implantation...

Research network in Hanover conducts research on intelligent implants

Researchers from a wide range of disciplines will work together to develop intelligent implant systems for the dental, skeletal and hearing areas, which for the first time will allow continuous monitoring of implant function and thus early detection of complications such as infections. Intelligent implant systems are to be developed...

Wissenschaftliche Untersuchung steril verpackter Medizinprodukte

100 original verpackte Zahnimplantate wurden mit einem Rasterelektronenmikroskop auf Rückstände untersucht. Folgende Materialien wurden gefunden: Metallische Partikel mit deutlichen Anteilen von Kupfer, Zinn, Chrom, Eisen, Wolfram und Nickel. Filmische Rückstände und kohlenstoffhaltige Partikel. Chemikalien wie z. B. Erucamid, Dodecylbenzolsulfonsäure. Der Autor diskutiert die medizinische Relevanz dieser Befunde. Author(s) Source Duddeck...

Scientific investigation of sterile packaged medical devices (german original)

100 originally packaged dental implants were examined for residues using a scanning electron microscope.  The following materials were found: Metallic particles with significant amounts of copper, tin, chromium, iron, tungsten and nickel. Filmic residues and carbon containing particles. Chemicals such as erucamide, dodecylbenzene sulfonic acid. The author discusses the medical...
