Mechanical testing of total shoulder replacement implant stability

In 2020, 46,919 total shoulder replacement (TSR) procedures were conducted in Australia, a 17% increase on the previous year. At 10 years post-operation, 12.3% will require revision, with 17.3% of revisions due to implant loosening. This is a significant load on the Australian healthcare system.To reduce the risk of implant loosening, surgeons propose different techniques for attaching the glenosphere (implant) to the glenoid (bone). Limited data is present however on the impact of these different techniques, if they reduce loosening, …

Characterising fatigue of 3D printed metamaterials

Each year, millions of people suffer from traumatic tissue damage due to cancers, congenital defects or injury. Biofabrication is the rapid 3D printing of replacement tissue and organs that are customised to the specific needs of the patient. This future of manufacturing technology is set to revolutionise regenerative medicine and deliver high quality health outcomes. The Biofabrication and Tissue Morphology group is a world class multi-disciplinary research team focused on embedding biofabrication into routine clinical use.Based at our state-of-the-art labs …
