Biomarkers of Hip Implant Function Book Review:

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 source Summarizes recent research into blood titanium levels associated with well-functioning and malfunctioning hip implants to aid implant revision decisions Contains essential clinical cases and tables to illustrate points

Advances in Intelligent Data Analysis XV Book Review:

This book constitutes the refereed conference proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Intelligent Data Analysis, which was held in October 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 36 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 75 submissions. The traditional focus of the IDA symposium series is on end-to-end intelligent support for data analysis. The symposium aims to provide a forum for inspiring research contributions that might be considered preliminary in other leading conferences and journals, but that have a potentially dramatic impact.

Clinical and Imaging Assessment of Metal on Metal Hip Patients Book Review:

A high failure rate of metal-on-metal (MoM) hip implants prompted regulatory authorities to issue worldwide product recalls. The cause for their failure and decisions surrounding the need for revision is complex due to poor understanding of the toxic effects of metal debris. In addition to local soft tissue destruction, circulating cobalt can cause rare but fatal cardiotoxicity. This thesis describes the detection of metal cobalt-chromium within the liver of a patient with highly elevated blood cobalt (587ppb) using novel MRI imaging techniques, validated by liver biopsy and micro x-ray fluorescence. The prevalence of tissue metal deposition and potential cardiotoxic effects were assessed through a prospective case controlled cohort study. Ninety patients were recruited into three age and gender-matched groups according to blood metal levels. All underwent detailed cardiovascular and liver phenotyping using MRI (for myocardial volumes and function, T2*, T1 and Extra-Cellular Volume mapping), echocardiography, and blood biomarker sampling. T2* is a novel MRI biomarker of tissue metal deposition. Blood cobalt levels among the cohort ranged 0.1 to 118ppb, which is still seen in patients presenting for clinical follow-up. No significant between-group differences were found for cardiac volume or function, nor was there any difference in tissue characterization using T1, T2* and ECV. Higher blood cobalt levels did not translate to increased metal deposition within the heart or liver.The application of these results were analsyed through a multi-disciplianary team setting designed to aid complex decisions of who, when and how to treat MoM patients surgically. By analysis of MDT recommendations compared to the treatment undertaken it was demonstrated that an MDT approach is an acceptable evidence-based aid to decision-making.This thesis concludes that cobalt tissue deposition can be detected using non-invasive MRI techniques, however metal deposition is not commonly seen with blood cobalt levels upto 118ppb with reassuringly little cardiotoxic effects. These results help reassure clinicians managing MoM patients through an MDT approach.

Metal Allergy Book Review:

This volume opens by providing a comprehensive overview of the use and regulation of metals in our society, metal properties, and available testing methodologies. Common and uncommon metal allergens and sources of exposure are then reviewed in depth, detailing allergic responses and paying special consideration to select patient populations. In the general population, the prevalence of metal allergy is high. Environmental sources of metal exposure include jewelry, clothing, electronic devices, coins, leather, diet, and occupational exposure. Metal allergy may result in allergic contact dermatitis and systemic contact dermatitis, as well as several less common manifestations. Further, metal allergy has been associated with device failure and/or dermatitis following implantation of medical devices and dental implants. As metals are ubiquitous, this book will be indispensable for a wide range of clinicians and investigators. This handy reference will meet the needs of all health professionals and investigators who are interested in metal allergy and its diagnosis and management.
