- Uncemented primary total hip arthroplasty, presentation of pain, and expression of osteonectinAlina Beraudi
Medical Technology Laboratory, Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, Bologna, Italy
Artif Organs 37:561-6. 2013..Our results suggest that cases of unexplained pain in THJR patients could be treated by paying special attention to the osseointegration status of the implant by using ON concentration as an early indicator of this status...
- Assessment of five interleukins in human synovial fluid as possible markers for aseptic loosening of hip arthroplastyAlina Beraudi
Laboratorio di Tecnologia Medica, Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy
Artif Organs 33:538-43. 2009..These results are a step forward to elucidating the complex network of events that are involved in loosening of hip implants...
- Osteon classification in human fibular shaft by circularly polarized lightAlina Beraudi
Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy
Cells Tissues Organs 191:260-8. 2010..This observation seems to confirm that along the fibula shaft the orientation of collagen fibers within the osteons is consistent with the loading conditions which the bone undergoes...
- Ceramic debris in hip prosthesis: correlation between synovial fluid and joint capsuleDalila De Pasquale
Medical Technology Laboratory, Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy
