Mrs. Sushmita Kulkarni (age – 60) was suffering due to knee pain for last few days. In order to take expert medical advice on this, Mrs. Sushmita came to SaiShree Orthopaedic Super Speciality and Joint Replacement Center in Aundh. At Saishree, Dr. Neeraj Adkar advised her to undergo knee replacement surgery and specifically he enlightened Mrs. Sushmita Kulkarni about the new ‘Gold on Gold Knee with Vitamin E Total Knee Replacement surgery.’ One of the key feature of this surgery is that the patient can do all kinds of different activities using his knee once this surgery is done, doctor Neeraj Adkar advised the concerned patient. Recently, Gold on Gold Knee with Vitamin E Total Knee Replacement surgery was performed on Mrs. Sushmita Kulkarni and now she can do various daily activities with ease using her knees.
SaiShree Orthopaedic Super Speciality & Joint Replacement Center, Aundh, Pune announces the implantation of the First 3D Gold Knee blended with vitamin ePlus Poly for total knee replacement in Maharashtra State. The vitamin ePlus Poly was the first total knee replacement material to be offered to patients in the U.S in July 2011. The ceramic Coated so called Gold Femur is increasingly in use since 1990s globally.
Joint replacement implants, particularly knee and hip prostheses, are subjected to a high degree of load and wear inducing movement that results in the release of abrasive particles. Wear and also the release of metal ions is caused by contact stress between the implant’s polyethylene bearing surfaces and the metallic components. Wear debris and metal ions have been shown to be the main cause of inflammation, premature loosening and allergic reactions associated with joint replacement implants.
In 3D Gold Knee, the Femur component is coated with TiNbN, Titanium Niobium Nitride. A fully biocompatible titanium niobium nitride (TiNbN) ceramic surface coating on metallic implant components has a beneficial effect on reducing both allergic reactions and wear.
Dr. Neeraj Adkar, Consultant Orthopedic & Joint Replacement surgeon says, In a knee replacement system, an insert component, which is made out of polyethylene, is positioned between the metal femur and tibial replacement components and serves as surface for the femur to articulate, or move, against. This Insert component is the weakest link between replaced Femur and Tibial metal components and Polyethylene wear continues to be a weak point in the long-term success of total knee replacements.
SaiShree Orthopaedic Super Speciality & Joint Replacement Center, Aundh, Pune launched first time in Maharashtra state this new orthopedic technology – E-plus which is an innovative, next generation formulation of high density polymer blended with vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant. Vitamin E improves the material’s strength while preventing polyethylene degenerating oxidation, leading to a reduction in wear. This helps the material hold up to the higher expectations of today’s active patient. E-plus is the first blended vitamin E polyethylene, with the vitamin E homogeneously blended directly into the resin.
The e-plus insert was created for the 3DKnee, a knee replacement system designed to improve strength, stability, and flexion in patients. The 3DKnee (Data Driven Design) is based on over a decade of research into total knee kinematics and over 100000 3DKnees have been implanted world-wide. E-plus now adds a new level of performance to 3DKnee total knee replacement. In laboratory testing, the 3DKnee produced 57% less wear with the e-plus insert compared with the already premium performing Direct Molded insert component currently used in the market with other knees. The Direct Molded insert component is individually molded to have a smooth surface. The new e-plus insert component has among the lowest simulated wear rates for a total knee replacement in the U.S.
Dr.Neeraj Adkar, was the first surgeon to implant an e-plus component with 3D Gold knee at SaiShree Orthopaedic Super Speciality & Joint Replacement Center, Aundh, Pune. “I am very excited to offer our patients the highest level of technology available to maximise benefits in longevity and performance when it comes to knee replacement surgery,” said Dr.Neeraj Adkar.
