07/01/2008 - "This study evaluated serum nutrients in 23 patients who had previous Proplast/Teflon implants to their temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and continued to remain in chronic, severe, irresolvable pain despite subsequent surgical reconstruction. "
08/01/2014 - "This article presents a patient experiencing several years of pain associated with bilateral failed temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Proplast/Teflon fossa prostheses. "
09/01/2004 - "For the subjective variables, patients exposed to Proplast-Teflon or Silastic had significantly higher mean pain scores long-term. "
01/01/1994 - "Seventeen patients (30%) received further operations because of heterotopic bone formation, fibrosis, calcification, inflammation, and/or pain which occurred mostly in patients with previous Proplast/Teflon (Vitek, Inc, Houston, TX) implants. "
08/01/2014 - "Methotrexate pharmacotherapy may represent a viable option when conservative treatments have failed to provide significant pain relief in patients who have had Proplast/Teflon TMJ implants. "
|2.||Foreign Bodies (Foreign Body)
02/01/1980 - "Results showed that Proplast allows fibrovascular ingrowth and stabilization without a significant foreign body response or encapsulation for a period of observation from 6 weeks to 4 months. "
07/01/1996 - "This study examined the nature of protein interactions with particulate polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, Teflon) to elucidate possible mechanisms involved in the foreign body response directed against failed Proplast/Teflon implants. "
07/01/1993 - "Exuberant foreign-body inflammatory reaction to polytetrafluoroethylene implants of the temporomandibular joint, marketed as Proplast-Teflon implants, has been widely recognized. "
09/01/2004 - "Total alloplastic temporomandibular joint (TMJ) reconstruction is often necessary because of the significant bony destruction resulting from failed Proplast-Teflon (Vitek, Houston, TX) and/or Silastic (Dow Corning, Arlington, TX) foreign body inflammatory reactions. "
10/01/2005 - "During this rather long follow-up, only two of the Proplast implants had to be removed (one because of an acute infection and the other because of a chronic infection causing extrusion after 5 years). "
02/01/1995 - "Two cases of late infection following aesthetic malar augmentation with Proplast implants are described. "
02/01/1995 - "Late infection following aesthetic malar augmentation with proplast implants."
10/01/1993 - "Post-operative infection of Proplast facial implants."
01/01/1990 - "We feel that Proplast may be used as an alternative to autograft for reconstructing large laryngotracheal defects when the procedure is staged to allow maximal fibrous ingrowth and the implant is protected from infection."
02/01/1978 - "We compared, histologically and biochemically, the effects of blood pretreatment vs. no pretreatment on the ingrowth of scar into subcutaneously implanted blocks of Proplast in rats. "
02/01/1978 - "Soft tissue response to Proplast: quantitation of scar ingrowth."
06/01/1991 - "The Teflon-Proplast composite and polymethylmethacrylate both limited the amount and adherence of scar. "
11/01/1978 - "(2) Patients treated with 1 gm daily of BAPN for twenty-one days showed an increase in cold saline-extractable and acid-extractable collagen in proplast sponge-collected and dermal scar tissue comparable with that reported previously after doses of 3 to 5 gm of BAPN daily. "
09/01/1997 - "The behavior, under burn scars, of three different alloplastic materials, silicone, Medpor and Proplast, was compared in an animal model. "
|5.||Wounds and Injuries (Trauma)
03/01/1977 - "Frontal sinus trauma: experimental reconstruction with proplast."
03/01/1984 - "Forty-five stemless Proplast-covered silicone rubber trapezium implants were used in 40 patients after trapeziectomy for either osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or trauma. "
09/01/1997 - "A standard burn wound was created in rats, and 3 months later silicone, medpor and proplast alloplasts were placed under the burn scar. "
