Hi bobbym,

#715. Name the medical term / phrase : (also known as Grade IV Astrocytoma) It is the most common and most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor in humans, involving glial cells and accounting for 52% of all functional tissue brain tumor cases and 20% of all intracranial tumors. GBM is a rare disease, with an incidence of 2–3 cases per 100,000 person life-years in Europe and North America. About 50% of the patients diagnosed with GBM die within one year, while 90% within three years. Treatment can involve chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Median survival with standard-of-care radiation and chemotherapy with temozolomide is 15 months. Median survival without treatment is 4½ months. Although no randomized controlled trials have been done, surgery remains the standard of care.

Hi bobbym,

The Answer #712 (The bony labyrinth (also osseous labyrinth or otic capsule)) is perfect! Remarkable!

#713. Name the medical term / phrase : The term refers to the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-bearing artificial implant. It enhanced the science of medical bone and joint replacement techniques as well as dental implants and improving prosthetics for amputees.  It is also defined as: "the formation of a direct interface between an implant and bone, without intervening soft tissue". It was first observed—albeit not explicitly stated—by Bothe, Beaton, and Davenport in 1940. Bothe et al. were the first researchers to implant titanium in an animal and remarked how it had the tendency to fuse with bone. Bothe et al. reported that due to the elemental nature of the titanium, its strength, and its hardness, it had great potential to be used as future prosthesis material. The medical term was later described by Gottlieb Leventhal in 1951.
