What Is Failed Trauma?
Implantation failure is one of the common failed trauma. When you have had a fracture or damaged any of your body parts it is considered as trauma. However, they are treated by any means, and in some cases to support the damaged areas of bone fracture, joint fracture, etc, surgeons implant artificial parts like plates, screws, nails, wires, etc. These implants are intended to perform a specific function.
Trauma Care Management in Failed Trauma
In most cases, doctors operate and repair the damaged parts successfully by implanting some supportive parts. After some time these implants may not function properly for which it is inserted can cause trauma which is called implantation failure or failed trauma.
Failed Trauma Treatment in Hyderabad
Trauma care management for failed trauma: An implant is a foreign body induced into our body by the surgeon at the site of damage where it is intended to perform certain lost functions. These implants are said to be failed if they stop performing the function for which they are inserted. Implants may lose functions due to:
- Damage to the implant
- Inadequate implant
- Loosening of implants
- Insufficient bone support
- In some cases, implants cause annoying complications, such as pain, infection, or toxicity – which may lead to rejection
- A manufacturing defect is also a major concern
There is a popular saying that the true cause of implant failure is not actually a device failure but rather the surgeon fails to understand the principles of fixation and limitations of the implants. The best orthopaedician should be aware of the biomechanical characteristics of the tools that are used. So it is important to consult an expert and experienced doctor for better results.
Your body reacts in two ways under load on the implant area i.e. the implant deforms and changes its shape due to strain and It generates excess force internally due to stress. Stress greatly weakens the structure. When a damaged bone is fixed with an artificial plate, the plate shares the limb load with bone and the bone is relieved from its original load that ultimately reduces the bone density.
Metals and alloys or polymers or ceramics are the materials that are used to make these artificial implants.

Revision surgery is the major surgical treatment performed to replace the previously failed implants with new implants. They are replaced due to improper functioning or damage caused to them. Revision surgery is challenging because after surgery scar tissue develops and soft tissues become less visible which makes it difficult to perform revision surgery or second surgery.

It is a complex procedure where the surgeon needs to adjust or remove the original implant that grown into the existing bone and restored it with a new device. Revision surgery provides various benefits which include:
- Relieves the pain in the affected part

- Improves the mobility
- Corrects the deformity if it is present
- Cures the infection
- Minimize further bone loss at the knee
