The progress of biomedical technologies has brought great benefits to all sectors that aim to protect and improve human health. The future possibilities of such technologies are indefinable, and their influence on the development of medicine and our society is of great importance.
The spread in healthcare facilities of an ever-increasing number of biomedical equipment and advanced technologies for diagnosis and therapy has radically changed the approach to health care, hyper-specializing the use of technologies in public and private hospitals.
This process of technologicalization highlights the need to use specific skills and adequate organizational structures to ensure an efficient and correct management of the technologies used.
For this reason, Rowen cooperates with the best companies in the biomedical field, using only supplies of medical devices and equipment of the highest quality.
Prosthetic Surgery is the branch of Orthopedic Surgery that deals with the total or partial replacement of joints with prostheses.
It consists of the complete replacement of the joint using metal prostheses. To date, the most commonly used prostheses are made of titanium alloy, but prostheses of different metal alloys can also be cemented to the bone.
Endoprostheses are joint replacement components or portions of them exclusively for surgical implantation that restore joint function. Orthopedic surgery has available various endoprostheses designed to replace different skeletal components (knee, hip, spine, etc.).
The Knee Prosthesis can be:
- – Monocompartmental: the medial or lateral part of the distal femur and proximal tibia is surgically replaced with special metal or ceramic prostheses that articulate on a special spacer (or insert) generally made of polyethylene. In unicompartmental prostheses, the anterior and posterior cruciate does not get removed.
- – Total Prosthesis (Arthroprosthesis): the entire joint, distal femur, proximal tibia, and menisci are surgically replaced with metal or ceramic prostheses that articulate on a special spacer (or insert) generally made of polyethylene.
Hip Endoprosthesis can be:
- – Partial Endoprosthesis: si sostituisce chirurgicamente o la parte femorale oppure la parte cotiloidea con una componente protesica che andrà ad interfacciarsi con la componente naturale.
- – Total Prosthesis (Arthroprosthesis): the proximal portion of the femur and the cup are removed with appropriate surgical techniques, then replacing these components with two different endoprostheses (femoral + acetabular).
Neurosurgery products are supportive of the main pathologies.
Therefore degenerative pathologies of the spine are treated, varying from the most common cases: lumbar hernias, lumbar stenosis, degenerative spondylolisthesis, cervical hernias, and cervical discartrosis- cervical myelopathy, to the more infrequent and complicated ones such as cervical deformities, multilevel stenosis, dorsal hernias, spondylolisthesis, etc.
Biomaterials are currently used in diverse medicine scopes , but research in this field promises significant advances in the functionality and applicability of biomaterials.
New “multifunctional” biomaterials capable of repairing tissue or organ defects or injuries, providing mechanical support and biological activity, should become a daily routine for medicine.
Our supports are currently the most advanced in the sector and stand out for quality and innovation.
