In our study designed to establish the abovementioned factors, the most common reasons which led to repeat revision surgeries in order of frequency were aseptic loosening, infection and instability, polyethylene wear, and osteolysis and periprosthetic fractures secondary to the wear.
In Figure 2, although some images of the surrounding bone were hidden in the shadow of the Ti pin, the greatest severity of osteolysis was observed around the pin in the control group.
For the study, researchers used a repository of 24-hour urine samples collected prior to surgery and annually thereafter in 26 patients, 16 who developed osteolysis and 10 who did not.

In rhB-MP-assisted fusions, endplate osteolysis and exuberant paravertebral soft-tissue swelling are frequent and expected changes that can be easily misinterpreted as infection (Figure 4).
Some interventional units employ a combination of a computed tomography (CT) scanner and a mobile C-arm, allowing for exact needle positioning using CT image to view the cross-sectional area of the osteolysis and adjacent soft tissues, and C-arm fluoroscopy to view needle inclination and cement extravasation (10, 21).

These findings from this study are significant in understanding the immunostimulatory effect of Ti(IV) ions on T lymphocytes and its underlying mechanism, especially in the presence of other inflammatory mediators, and hence provide new insights into the process and therapeutic strategies of inflammatory osteolysis.
