For example, the cost of an implanted heart valve is roughly $5000–$7000. The surgery to implant the device entails a hospital bill and first year follow-up costs upwards of $40,000. Reoperation for replacing a failed valve will have these same costs. Reoperations for failed valves now exceed 10% of all valve replacements. Overall costs of healthcare and medical devices are summarized in Table 2. Success and Failure. Most biomaterials and medical devices perform satisfactorily, improving the quality of life for the recipient or saving lives.
At weld joints), and infection. A. Total Hip Replacement Prostheses The human hip joint is subjected to high levels of mechanical stress, and receives considerable abuse in the course of normal and extraordinary activity. It is not surprising that after 50 or more years of cyclic mechanical stress or because of degenerative or rheumatoid disease, FIGURE 5 A hip prosthesis. Microplasty® titanium alloy femoral stem, Biolox® alumina-zirconia ceramic femoral head, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene acetabular cup infused with vitamin E antioxidant.
Also, in normal physiology, the tooth is connected to the jaw by the periodontal ligament, and is not directly attached to the jawbone. One of the primary advantages originally cited for the titanium implant was its osseous integration with the bone of the jaw. In recent years, however, this attachment has been more accurately described as a tight apposition or mechanical fit, and not true bonding. Loss of tissue support leading to loosening remains an occasional problem, along with infection and issues associated with the mechanical properties of unalloyed titanium that is subjected to long-term cyclic loading.
