Estrogen Replacement Therapy definition: The use of hormonal agents with estrogen-like activity in postmenopausal or other estrogen-deficient women to alleviate effects of hormone deficiency, such as vasomotor symptoms, DYSPAREUNIA, and progressive development of OSTEOPOROSIS. This may also include the use of progestational agents in combination therapy.
estrogen replacement therapy definition: Hormones (estrogen, progesterone, or both) given to postmenopausal women or to women who have had their ovaries surgically removed. Hormones are given to replace the estrogen no longer produced by the ovaries.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy definition: The administration of estrogen, especially in postmenopausal women, to relieve menopausal symptoms and to protect against osteoporosis and heart disease. (Bartleby.com)
Heart-Assist Devices definition: Small pumps, often implantable, designed for temporarily assisting the heart, usually the left ventricle, to pump blood; they consist of a pumping chamber and a power source, which may be partially or totally external to the body and activated by electromagnetic motors; the devices are used after myocardial infarction or to wean the repaired heart from the heart-lung machine after open-heart surgery.
Ossicular Prosthesis definition: An implant used to replace one or more of the ear ossicles. They are usually made of plastic, Gelfoam, ceramic, or stainless steel.
Prostheses, Middle Ear Ossicle definition: Implantable prostheses designed for partial or total replacement of the small middle ear bones (i.e., ossicles) that transmit sound. These prostheses are typically made of bioactive materials such as hydroxyapatite, bioactive glasses, silastic, stainless steel, titanium, or high-density polyethylene sponge (HDPS); some materials require placement of cartilage between the prosthesis and the tympanic membrane to prevent extrusion. Sculpted autografts and allografts are less frequently used as ossicular prostheses. Ossicular implants are used mainly to reestablish the middle ear sound-conducting mechanism; they are also used to repair congenital abnormalities in the middle ear ossicles, improving patient's hearing capabilities. Prostheses intended to replace the stapes, stapes and incus, or the total ossicular bones are available.
Arthroplasty, Replacement, Knee definition: Replacement of the knee joint.
Total Arthroplasty of the Knee definition: Surgical replacement of all parts of a damaged knee joint with an artificial joint.
Arthroplasty of the Knee definition: Surgical reconstruction or replacement of all or part of a damaged knee joint with an artificial joint or artificial components.
Arthroplasty, Replacement definition: Partial or total replacement of a joint.
