The use of a mandibular modular endoprosthesis after segmental resection of part of the body of the mandible was studied. This preliminary study was carried out on four pigs and four monkeys. The devices were made of a titanium alloy and were cemented in the prepared medullary spaces with polymethylmetacrylate cement. The prosthesis failed in one pig, but in the other animals the prostheses were stable and firmly fixed to the stumps after 3 months. It was concluded that the endoprosthesis has… CONTINUE READING
