  1. Nanofilm Prevents Premature Implant FailuresEvery year, more than a million Americans receive an artificial hip or knee prosthesis. Such implants are designed to last many years, but in about 17 percent of patients who receive a total joint replacement, the implant eventually loosens and has to be replaced early, which can cause dangerous complications for elderly patients.To help minimize these burdensome operations, a team of MIT chemical engineers has developed a new coating for implants that could help them better adhere to the patient’s bone, preventing premature failure.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news-Nanofilm-Could-Prevent-Hip-Implant-Failures-042012.aspx
