Scholarcy highlights

  • Metal ion release from the orthopedic implants is a great concern for the clinicians and patients
  • The aim of the current work is to develop a biosensor based on the electrochemistry to measure the metal release to the body fluids from the implants
  • A series of tests were done with biosensor prototype with increasing concentration of metal release, which is generated from a hip simulator
  • Hart A et al Surveillance of patients with metal-on-metal hip resurfacing and total hip prostheses: a prospective cohort study to investigate the relationship between blood metal ion levels and implant failure
  • Atrey A et al 601 metal-on-metal total hip replacements with 36 mm heads a 5 minimum year follow up: levels of ARMD remain low despite a comprehensive screening program
