Google Dr. Branemark

A German engineer personally tried to use an implanted pin to attach

his prosthesis. The problems is creating a dermatological seal around

the site to prevent infection. The project failed and the pt went from

TT to TF. Jury is still out.

Last presentation on this page……

Bad news first: The answer isn’t too good if your patient is

in a rush. Dr. Branemark (originator of titanium mandibular dental

implants) has been doing femoral implants in Sweden or somewhere in Scandanavia,

however, there are only about a dozen patients that have been successful with

prostheses. The good news: Brown University in Providence, RI just

got a grant from the VA and DOD to work on bio-prosthetics. Maybe your

candidate should get in touch with Brown to see if they need guinea pigs! Good

luck.
