The use of resorbable craniomaxillofacial fixation has recently garnered support, especially in the pediatric population. Its advantages are well summated in other articles within this journal. The aim of this article is to present a unique but preventable complication of the LactoSorb resorbable craniomaxillofacial fixation system (Lorenz/Biomet, Inc., Warsaw, IN): retention of the hex head of a LactoSorb screw. This article addresses the complication and its future avoidance.
