Abstract:After two decades of the use of resorbable miniplates, new polymer compositions for resorbable osteosynthesis are still being developed to make the handling and outcome of operations even more predictable and give higher stability to the repositioned segments. This study investigates a new resorbable osteosynthesis system in orthognathic patients. 50 patients were treated with P(L/DL)LA-TMC resorbable osteosynthesis and compared to a group of 50 patients treated with titanium miniplates. Segmental stability an…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
