download Hip Resurfacing with Metal-Metal Articulation – James Richardson

Hip resurfacing is a new and exciting development, and a superior alternative to hip replacement. While hip replacement gives reasonably good results in elderly inactive people, the outcomes obtained using this technique in active young people are inferior. Following hip replacement, activities are restricted and sports and games are not permitted. In some patients, there…

In recent years, a great variety of novel analytical methods has been developed to analyze composition, architecture and physico-chemical properties of microbial aggregates such as activated sludge flocs and biofilms. Simultaneously, new modeling approaches, aided by improved numerical simulation of the structure and function of these aggregates, have furthered our ability to understand their development…
