Biomarkers of Hip Implant Function: Diagnostic Modalities to Prevent Chronic Periprosthetic Joint Infection and Implant Failure brings together established and potential new biomarkers, critically evaluating their clinical usefulness based on recent evidence. Researchers will benefit from a comprehensive view of the topic to identify underexplored areas. Orthopedic surgeons and general practitioners will use the book to monitor implant performance and facilitate management of their patients. Additionally, the work will benefit engineers and joint implant manufacturers to guide improvements in design. This book will also be of interest to regulators and policymakers by helping them update their guidelines on follow-ups for hip implant recipients.Nearly all orthopedic surgeons have implanted a cobalt-chromium hip and most general practitioners have at least one patient with cobalt-chromium implant on their books. The recent worldwide controversy surrounding metal-on-metal hips means that advice on how to manage patients with these implants is of great interest to these professionals. Hence, this book is a welcomed addition to the conversation.Covers all candidate biomarkers of hip implant wear and toxicity in a single sourceSummarizes recent research into blood titanium levels associated with well-functioning and malfunctioning hip implants to aid implant revision decisionsContains essential clinical cases and tables to illustrate points
