The most frequently studied material is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) serving as a carrier for the local delivery of antibiotics [6].
The sensitive antibiotics, polymethylmethacrylate powder and monomer (formula: antibiotic 0.1 g, polymethylmethacrylate bone cement 2.0 g, monomer 1.0 mL) were weighed, and mixed by hand (polymethylmethacrylate monomer added into the antibiotics and bone cement powder mixture), and immediately filled into the syringe before the antibiotic-loaded bone cement solidified, and then the stylet was pushed to squeeze the antibiotic cement into the plastic tube, and the plastic tube was peeled after it solidified; then the long strip of antibiotic cement plug was taken out.
Versus conventional LED-optic systems--which feature separate reflectors, shields, and lenses that must be positioned precisely--with the new system a polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) lens is paired with a 1x1 LED light source, eliminating typical component stack-up and the extra space that takes while increasing light-output efficiency.
Slippage occurred for octadecanoic acid and zinc stearate in polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and polystyrene (PS).
Certain acrylic intraocular lenses (IOL) may be associated with lower rates of PCO than polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and silicon lenses.
The samples were retained in custom made polymethylmethacrylate resin and tightened in a fixture attached to the compression load cell of testing machine with 1KN load, 19 at crosshead speed of 0.5mm/min.
This was constructed from a plain glass slide (1 mm X 75 mm X 25 mm) and a polymethylmethacrylate sheet using double-sided adhesive tape.
Bone cement used was Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), and Vancomycin was the antibiotic used for cement impregnation.
She had previously undergone curettage and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cementation of a biopsy-proven giant cell tumor of the first metatarsal two and a half years prior at a different institution.
