An MRI can predict adverse tissue reaction in MoM patients, expediting treatment
Adverse tissue reactions are perhaps best understood in metal-on-metal bearing surfaces, due to their long track record and the advent of hip resurfacing arthroplasty.
A small number of patients implanted with these hips may, however, develop progressive soft tissue reactions to the wear debris associated with MoM articulations.
Because of the high acidity and high initial HF concentration in the cement liquid, one may expect that implantation of the experimental FA-CPC pastes in subcutaneous tissues, would incite negative tissue reactions.
The Polyzene(R)-F treated surface is anti-inflammatory, promotes quick and complete vessel healing, reduces peri-operative and post-procedural platelet activation, and helps to prevent tissue reactions that lead to restenosis.
