For the First Time Ever, Scientists Successfully Implant a Polymeric Prosthesis Imitating Bone Structure

For the first time ever, a research team from the small innovative enterprise Biomimetix, implementing several NUST MISIS developments, has successfully implanted a biomimetic hybrid prosthesis imitating bone structure made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene and titanium alloy into a patient’s femoral bone. The successful surgery was carried out at the request of the “MedVet” veterinarian clinic.

Durability Test: Scientists Discover How to Predict Life of Implants without Animal Testing

An international team of researchers consisting of scientists from NUST MISIS and their German colleagues has developed a technology to study the behavior of orthopedic implants in laboratory conditions as close as possible to the human body. The technology is notable for its ethics: the research can be carried out in vitro — that is, without involving lab animals. The research article has been published in the Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials.

NUST MISIS Scientists Develop Self-Aligning Polymer Implants with Shape Memory

A science team from the Center of Composite Materials at NUST MISIS, led by research assistant Fedor Senatov, have developed a new type of polymeric bone implants with shape memory that can be used without fittings and blocking devices during surgery. One of the new implant`s characteristics is increased implant survival rate in body tissues, as well as the ability to organically degrade, and thus subsequently be replaced by natural bone tissues.
