A comparative animal experimental study of differently dimensioned osteosynthesis screws used in the mid-face.

Abstract

The soft tissue covering most of the midfacial skeleton is relatively thin. On account of this plates and screws of the 2 mm systems used in the osteosynthesis of this region can bulge and/or be palpable through the thin integument. This shortcoming has prompted the need to develop smaller systems. The present study was designed to investigate whether these… (More)
