INTRODUCTION We investigated the applicability and 1-year stability of a β-tricalcium phosphate-hydroxyl apatite mixture (Atlantik) for secondary reconstruction of craniofacial defects and the application of OsiriX in evaluating bone and implant volumes. METHODS We included 6 patients (25-59 years) with craniofacial defects. A computed tomography scan was made preoperative, directly postoperative, and at least 1 year postoperative to evaluate volume changes. OsiriX was used to quantify… CONTINUE READING
