The Company's Metasul bearing technology was first introduced in 1988 and, unlike competitive offerings, is a forged, high carbon cobalt-chromium alloy
Group 8th Stents with cobalt-chromium alloy
mounted on a balloon - 200 pieces
The metal parts of knee implants are composed of titanium or cobalt-chromium alloys
, and the plastic components are made of ultrahigh-density polyethylene, data from the AAOS indicated.
Systemic effects of implanted prostheses made of cobalt-chromium alloys
They cover membranes for oxygenators and plasma filters; titanium and cobalt-chromium alloys
for hips and knees; polymeric joint bearing surfaces for total joint replacement; biomaterials for pacemakers, defibrillators and neurostimulators; mechanical and bioprosthetic heart valves; small intestinal submucosa and other decellularized matrix biomaterials for tissue repair; new ceramics and composites for joint replacement surgery; biomaterials for improving the blood and tissue compatibility of total artificial hearts and ventricular assist devices; nanostructured biomaterials for artificial tissues and organs; and matrices for tissue engineering and regenerative medicines.
The 42 papers include discussions of biomimetic multiphasic calcium phosphates to enhance bone regeneration, the high-cycle fatigue evaluation of two beta-rich titanium casting alloys, understanding errors in mechanical testing results, the effects of cold work and heat treatment on the properties of nitinol wire, increasing the wettability and biocompatibility of metal implants by low-pressure plasma treatment, the electrochemical behavior of cobalt-chromium alloys
, designing and developing metal-polymer film systems for flexible electrodes used in cortical mapping, and other topics.
