Abstract

Using strictly surgical techniques without rehabilitation often leads to a systemic pattern of relapse within approximately a year's time. With the technique proposed, we have obtained functional recuperation that has persisted for more than five years (Fig 4). We feel the splints are useful because they afford comfort to the patient, a shorter hospitalization period, and no risk of infection.
