Orthopedic Implants: Combining Innovation with the technology can improve the quality of life for recipient patients


If you chance to enter an operation theater where orthopedic surgeries are performed, you may feel for few seconds as if you have entered a car repair garage. You will find that hammers, wrenches and other metal tools are being put to work on the human bodies. Most of the orthopedic surgery requires orthopedic implants or devices that replace or support damaged joints or bones in the body. Screws, plates, pins and rods are the most commonly used implants. Generally, metal rods are used to prevent bones from breaking. Orthopedic surgeons, just like experienced car mechanics, rely on their intuition when performing certain procedures.

Plastic, ceramic, stainless steel and titanium are used to make orthopedic implants. These implants can be fixed or screwed into place or alternately the pressure from surrounding muscle and ligaments can be used to do so. In few other procedures like hip replacement both the methods may be used. Orthopedic Implants made from metals usually are lined with plastic, which serves as artificial cartilage.

To help improve the quality of life of the recipient patients, modern technology, in perfect harmony with the research, has to partner with innovative business model that encourages advancements in orthopedic implants and surgery.

NET Hip Prosthesis

Hip replacement surgery (also called total hip arthroplasty) is an option if more-conservative treatments have failed and hip pain is interfering with day to day activities. There are so many conditions that can damage the hip joint, often necessitating hip replacement surgery. These conditions include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteonecrosis. During the hip replacement process, a surgeon removes the damaged part of the hip joint and replaces them with parts that are generally constructed of metal and very hard plastic. This artificial joint or prosthesis not only reduce pain but also improve function.

Hip Prosthesis is a device, which is used to replace the damaged or fractured part of the Femoral head. Hip prosthesis is anatomically designed to match the shape of the femoral head. Narang Medical Limited under Hip Prosthesis System offers Austin Moore, Thompson, Bipolar, Total Hip Replacement System and Instruments/Instrument Sets for Hip Prosthesis and Hip Replacement Systems.


NET Cannulated Screws


NET Cannulated screws can be inserted over a guide wire or guide pin. Since the diameter of the guide pin is much smaller than the cannulated screw, it can be more precisely placed using fluoroscopy in the operation theatre.

Cannulated screws have a hollow central shaft and therefore both cortical and cancellous screws can be cannulated. Cannulated cancellous screws are used for metaphyseal fractures while cannulated and non cannulated cortical screws are used as lag screws for fixation of diaphyseal fractures. Knowles pin, a special kind of cannulated cancellous screw, used for fixation of slipped capital femoral epiphysis in children.

Narang Medical Limited which is one of the leading manufacturer of orthopedic implants and instruments offers Cortical and Cancellous cannulated screws in various lengths and with diameters varying from 2.7 to 7.3 mm.

Orthopedic Implants

What are Orthopedic Implants?

Orthopedic implants can be defined as medical devices used to replace or provide fixation of bone or to replace articulating surfaces of a joint. In simpler words, orthopedic implants are used to replace damaged or troubled joints. The implant surgeries are performed only by highly specialized and trained surgeons. The surgical procedures for each implant involves removal of the damaged joint and an artificial prosthesis replacement.

Orthopedic implants are mainly made from stainless steel and titanium alloys for strength and lined with plastic to act as artificial cartilage. Few are cemented into place and others are pressed to fit so that your bone can grow into the implant for strength.

Why do need for Orthopedic Implants arise?

Osteoarthritis is the primary reason for orthopedic implants. Also called degenerative joint disease, Osteoarthritis causes cartilage to worn down resulting in painful bone to bone contact. Cartilage break down occurs as a result of excess body weight and/or the lack of joint movement. Your doctor will suggest implants as an option only when all non-surgical treatments have failed, including weight loss.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Orthopedic Implants

The major point to remember is that orthopedic implants are designed differently by different manufacturers. This means manufacturers use different theories to develop implants for each specific application. Orthopedic implants not only gives back quality of life but also helps in increasing mobility and reducing pain. Strict post-surgery recovery plan, infection, and possible malfunction are some of the disadvantages of Orthopedic Implants.

Types of Orthopedic Implants

Each orthopedic implant is designed to correct the affected joint so that it withstand the movement and stress associated and to enhance mobility and decrease pain. Broadly speaking, Orthopedic implants are available for the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow. However, information available on a website www.orthopaedic-implants.com there are many categories of orthopedic implants based on application. We reproduce major categories from this website with the permission of Narang Medical Limited, the company which owns this website:
