The fixation strength of pedicle screws could be increased by fixating along the much stronger cortical bone layer, which is not possible with the current rigid and straight bone drills. Inspired by the tsetse fly, a single-plane steerable bone drill was developed. The drill has a flexible transmission using two stacked leaf springs such that...

INTRODUCTION: Despite technological advancements in recent years, glenoid component loosening remains a common complication after anatomical total shoulder arthroplasty (ATSA) and is one of the main causes of revision surgery. Increasing emphasis is placed on the prevention of glenoid component failure. Previous studies have successfully...

A promising new treatment for large and complex bone defects is to implant specifically designed and additively manufactured synthetic bone scaffolds. Optimizing the scaffold design can potentially improve bone in-growth and prevent under- and over-loading of the adjacent tissue. This study aims to optimize synthetic bone scaffolds over...

This thesis is initiated by the Reinier Haga Orthopaedic Centre (RHOC) and shows the creation of a patient-centred healthcare network for orthopaedic hand and wrist care. A healthcare network can be defined as a group of interconnected stakeholders that directly or indirectly influence the patient’s care. In this project, the involved...

Introduction - Arthritis is a condition causing pain, deformations and loss of motion in human joints. The surgical instruments used to place a specific unconstrained prosthesis that is used to treat an arthritic joint are difficult to use. The objective for this thesis is to improve the current placement procedure by carrying out an analysis on...

Purpose: This review provides an overview of the patent literature on posteriorly placed intrapedicular bone anchors. Conventional pedicle screws are the gold standard to create a fixation in the vertebra for spinal fusion surgery but may lack fixation strength, especially in osteoporotic bone. The ageing population demands new bone anchors...

During the course of this thesis, the design of a knee brace that improves the quality of life for people with arthritis in the knee, is being researched. The knee joint is covered with articular cartilage which protects the bones from being damaged. Arthritis of the knee is a pathology where this cartilage is damaged potentially even to the...

Introduction. In spinal surgery, the misplacement of spinal screws is a problem that causes (severe) pain, bleedings or even paralysis [2]. Screw misplacements are common as navigating in the spine is difficult due to the small vertebral dimensions and a lack of anatomical landmarks [3] [4]. In order to improve the navigational support of spine...

In spinal surgery, the misplacement of spinal screws is a common problem that causes (severe) pain, bleedings or even paralysis [1] [2] [3]. In order to improve the navigational support of spine surgeons, this research focuses on the development of an optical sensing diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) orthopaedic drill that identifies bone...

For patients that undergo a total hip replacement (Total Hip Arthroplasty, THA), tailored communication through printed or digital information channels may improve the patient experience. This PhD project explored how a segmentation of the Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA, both knee and hip surgery) patient population can be used to design tailored...

Deployable meta-implants aim to minimize the invasiveness of orthopaedic surgeries by allowing for changes in their shape and size that are triggered by an external stimulus. Multi-stability enables deployable implants to transform their shape from some compact retracted state to the deployed state where they take their full sizes and are...

BACKGROUND: Widespread use and misuse of antibiotics have led to a dramatic increase in the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria, while the discovery and development of new antibiotics is declining. This has made certain implant-associated infections such as periprosthetic joint infections, where a biofilm is formed, very difficult to...

A compliant bone drill provides advantages over conventional straight drills, because it allows surgical access via a minimally invasive approach. Hydropower allows the transfer of pressurized water with a compliant hose. The goal is to select the hydraulic actuator for this compliant bone drill by reviewing existing actuator principles. The...

Patient-centred care is becoming more important in healthcare. The success of patient-centred care can be assessed by exploring the patient experience through a patient journey map. As the number of outpatient surgeries is increasing, it is important to reveal the specific characteristics of this type of surgery. The perioperative patient...

When people experience pain, discomfort or motion limitation in their hip joint they can get a hip implant. This implant improves the movement and decreases the pain and discomfort. Due to several reasons such an implant needs revision after ten to fifteen years. This revision surgery is a long and invasive surgery. When an implant is fixated...

Currently 30% of all knee prosthesis patients do not return to work after surgery. This is partially caused by the insufficient guidance of the patient's care providers. the most important care providers in this are the occupational physician and orthopaedic surgeon. The current collaboration is experienced by both the occupational physician and...

Corrective osteotomy is the treatment for malunion of bone segments, which is required after insufficient fracture management. To perform this procedure adequately, 3D imaging is used to make a virtual plan of the osteotomy. In order to transfer this virtual plan to the patient in the operating room, a navigation method is required. Existing...

Additively manufactured (AM) porous metallic biomaterials are considered promising candidates for bone substitution. In particular, AM porous titanium can be designed to exhibit mechanical properties similar to bone. There is some experimental data available in the literature regarding the fatigue behavior of AM porous titanium, but the...

The primary aim of this project was to explore how design can improve teamwork in the orthopaedic clinic. Literature shows that in the healthcare sector, increasing attention is given to teamwork dynamics. In fact, studies demonstrate that communication and teamwork failures contribute significantly to the amount of adverse events. Moreover, it...

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder for elderly above the age of sixty-five. A Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) surgery is an effective and common solution for moderate to severe osteoarthritis. After THA surgery patients start a rehabilitation phase in which they have to comply to a rehabilitation regimen. This rehabilitation phase...
