What Is Bone? January 2012 To understand osteoporosis, it is important to learn about bone.
Made mostly of collagen, bone is living, growing tissue. Collagen is a protein that provides a soft framework, and calcium phosphate is a mineral that adds strength and hardens the framework. This combination of collagen and calcium makes bone strong and flexible enough to withstand stress. More than 99 percent of the body's calcium is contained in the bones and teeth.
Two types of bone found in the body—cortical and trabecular. Bone Remodeling Throughout life, bone is constantly renewed through a two-part process called remodeling. The Bone Bank Account Think of bone as a bank account where you “deposit” and “withdraw” bone tissue. After age 20, bone “withdrawals” can begin to exceed “deposits.” Women, Men, and Osteoporosis Women are more likely than men to develop osteoporosis. Osteoporosis Prevention Osteoporosis is preventable for many people. For Your Information U.S. Start-Up Develops Advanced Biomaterials for Surgery. Posted in Medical Materials - Raw Materials by Thomas Klein on August 22, 2014 The medtech start-up Biom’Up traces its roots to the French National Institute of Applied Science (INSA) in Lyon and the Faculty of Pharmacy in Lyon (Université Claude Bernard).
Using its expertise in manufacturing innovative biopolymers for medical applications to improve human reconstructive surgery, the young medtech company has developed an antiadhesion collagen membrane. “Our innovation is based on a patented collagen extraction, purification, and forming process,” explains Patricia Forest, Biom’Up's scientific director. The basis for the Cova technology is a new preparation process for collagen materials that entails treating wet fibrous collagen with a modified polysaccharide cross-linking agent. The resulting collagen membrane has very good elastic and mechanical resistance properties, providing surgeons with a very easy-to-handle product, especially in laparoscopy, according to the company. Adhesions: Get Facts on Scar Tissue after Surgery. Adhesions, General and After Surgery Adhesions Overview An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds two parts of tissue or organs together.
Adhesions may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap or as thick fibrous bands. The tissue develops when the body's repair mechanisms respond to any tissue disturbance, such as surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation. Although adhesions can occur anywhere, the most common locations are within the abdomen, the pelvis, and the heart. Abdominal adhesions: Abdominal adhesions are a common complication of surgery, occurring in up to a majority of people who undergo abdominal or pelvic surgery. Most adhesions are painless and do not cause complications. Pelvic adhesions: Pelvic adhesions may involve any organ within the pelvis, such as the uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, or bladder, and usually occur after surgery, such as after C-section or hysterectomy.
Medically Reviewed by a Doctor on 11/10/2014 Medical Author: Coauthor: Poster_a20.pdf. ARISTA™ AH - Davol. INDICATIONS Arista™AH is indicated in surgical procedures (except neurological and ophthalmic) as an adjunctive hemostatic device to assist when control of capillary, venous, and arteriolar bleeding by pressure, ligature, and other conventional procedures is ineffective or impractical.
CONTRAINDICATIONS Do not inject or place Arista™AH into blood vessels as potential for embolization and death may exist. WARNINGS Arista™AH is not intended as a substitute for meticulous surgical technique and the proper application of ligatures or other conventional procedures for hemostasis. Once hemostasis is achieved, excess Arista™AH should be removed from the site of application by irrigation and aspiration particularly when used in and around foramina of bone, areas of bony confine, the spinal cord, and/or the optic nerve and chiasm. Arista™AH swells to its maximum volume immediately upon contact with blood or other fluids. Dry, white Arista™AH should be removed. Article-dm-biom-up-1.pdf.
"Pépites" du Grand Lyon : 4 entreprises lauréates de la 6e vague de l'appel à projets. Découvrez quatre nouvelles "Pépites" du Grand Lyon, petites et moyennes entreprises à fort potentiel de développement, sélectionnées le 14 octobre 2013 pour être accompagnées dans l'hyper-croissance !
La 6e vague de l'appel à projets permanent "Pépites" du Grand Lyon s'achève avec la sélection de 4 nouvelles entreprises lauréates, sélectionnées par un comité d'experts pluridisciplinaires le 14 octobre 2013. Le programme "Pépites" du Grand Lyon Démarche initiée en 2011, par le Grand Lyon en partenariat avec la CCI de Lyon, le programme "Pépites"accompagne les PME à très fort potentiel de développement vers et dans l'hypercroissance. Comme autant de pépites, ces entreprises portent en germe la recomposition des secteurs et territoires économiques grandlyonnais de demain. Il s'agit donc d'appuyer ces entreprises dans leur hypercroissance, contribuant ainsi à la constitution des futures entreprises de taille intermédiaire (ETI) du Grand Lyon. Alfatrans International.
