A new technique for cranial bone osteofixation: use of bioabsorbable tacks and plates to fix parietal bone split grafts used for reconstruction of a posttraumatic frontal bone defect.


Recent advances in bioabsorbable devices have introduced tacks that do not require tapping. This may help to reduce operative time and, consequently, costs. The goal of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of a new method of cranial bone osteofixation using novel bioabsorbable tacks and plates instead of screws. A 36-year-old man presented for… (More)
