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…
