In the present era, medical implants have advanced at an amazing pace. Many new technologies have been used in this field and operations such as radioactive seed implant, erections being created using hydraulics, plugging of a heart into a wall have been successfully performed.

Here are the top 5 exquisite implants being picked.

5.Radioactive Seed Implantation:

These implants are called brachytherapy. They are used to cure early stage cancer. This is performed by implanting small sized radioactive seeds into the prostate using a needle. These seeds emit radioactive radiations which are similar to the external radiations. These emissions attack the tumor. The radiation travels for a short distance and does not affect the region surrounding the prostate unlike radiotherapy.

4.Bionic Eye:

Now-a-days restoring sight can be performed in a number of ways. One of the most reliable and the best methods for the above operation is the Bionic Eye.

An artificial retina is formed by surgically planting a set of electrodes into the eye. However, the retina does not perform the function of vision. A small camera is placed above a pair of glasses. A small computer is used to process the information and transmitting it wirelessly to the artificial retina.

Though the vision formed is very poor, this technology is under the process of improvement.

3.Deep Brain Stimulation:

In this particular technology, implantation of electrodes into certain parts of the brain is performed. Then, wires are connected to a neuro-stimulator from underneath the skin which is implanted in the chest.

This technique works successfully for Parkinson’s disease and is under the testing stage for the treatment of depression. However there are many facts unknown about this operation. The reason for pulses sending the blues packing is not known yet.

Though the working of the implant is not known, the fact that it can regulate our mood makes it sound amazing and is hence stays third in the list.

2.Hydraulic Penal Implantation:

The penal implant is used when erectile dysfunction does not get cured by medication.

The Hydraulic Penile Implant consists of three parts: two cylinders which are implanted into the penis, a pump being implanted into the scrotum, and a reservoir of fluid being implanted into the lower part of the abdomen.

When a man wishes for erection, he uses the pump to pump the liquid into the two cylinders by which expansion takes place and hence the penis becomes erect. Though there are many risks in the process of implantation of these devices, they work at a satisfactory rate. This uses innovation along with application of trivial engineering principles in the body and hence stands second in our list!

1.Heart Pumps:

The heart pumps are mainly used by patients who have had hear failures and need to pump more blood. These pumps function instead of one or two of the ventricles of the heart. This pump works on batteries which are present outside the body. The patients often plug them directly into the wall socket and hence charge them up. It makes the heart beat normally even during tiredness.

The heart pump stands first in the list since it can extend life to a considerable amount of time and can perform the function close to that of an artificial heart.
