Mechanical, biological, material and clinical aspects of performance of joint prostheses
At the Research department at the Valdoltra Orthopaedic Hospital the surgeons and researchers are joined in an interdisciplinary team which performs research work and activities directed to the understanding of prosthesis performance from several aspects including mechanical, biological, material and clinical aspects. Studies are largely based on the hospital’s Arthroplasty Register which represents a valuable source of information for data-based analysis of arthroplasty treatments. Our register is special in that it includes the implant retrieval program for explanted prosthetic components and periprosthetic tissue samples. Research is versatile and interdisciplinary, and is a challenge for young researchers searching for new knowledge and scientific results.
