Zimmer Biomet, Inc. - NEXGEN KNEE PROSTHESIS & LEGACY KNEE PROSTHESIS W/CONIDIUM SURFACE HARDENING PROCESS - Class 2 Recall

NexGen Knee CR Porous FEM NexGen Knee CR Precoat FEM prosthesis, knee, patellofemorotibial, semi-constrained, cemented, polymer/metal/polymer various sizes "" This device is indicated for patients with severe knee pain and disability due to: Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, polyarthritis. Collagen disorders, and/or avascular necrosis of the femoral condyle. Post-traumatic loss of joint configuration, particularly when there is patellofemoral erosion, dysfunction or prior patellectomy. Moderate valgus, varus, or flexion deformities. The salvage of previously failed surgical attempts or for a knee in which satisfactory stability in flexion cannot be obtained at the time of surgery. " CR and LPS porous coated femoral and tibial baseplate components may be used cemented or uncemented (biological fixation). The CR Hydroxyapatite/tricalcium phosphate [HA/TCP] coated femoral or tibial baseplate components may only be used uncemented. All other femoral, tibial baseplate and all-polyethylene patella components are indicated for cemented use only."

Authors: Karabay O, Güçlü E, Şimşek A, Okan HD, Öğütlü A, Coşgun Y, Menemenlioğlu D Abstract The frequency of travel-related infections in the world has increased due to the easily and widespread use of travel facilities in the 21st century. Vector-borne diseases are an important part of infectious diseases. Dengue fever is one of the travel-related infections that has been reported increasingly in recent years through the development of diagnostic methods. The aim of this report was to present two Dengue fever cases originating from travel. There was a story of mosquito bite du...

In this study we demonstrate the use of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-based epigenome editing to alter cell response to inflammatory environments by repressing inflammatory cytokine cell receptors, specifically TNFR1 and IL1R1. This has applications for many inflammatory-driven diseases. It could be applied for arthritis or to therapeutic cells that are being delivered to inflammatory environments that need to be protected from inflammation." In chronic back pain, for example, slipped or herniated discs are a result of damaged tissue when inflammation causes cells to create ...
