The structure and functional relationship of polymers have long been the purview of engineers and polymer chemists. Bioabsorbable fixation devices have been used for decades as dissolvable suture meshes and, recently, routinely by orthopedic surgeons. During the past decade, bioabsorbable fixation systems have become available for use by craniomaxillofacial surgeons for cranial vault remodeling. This study evaluates the application of a bioabsorbable fixation system in reconstructive… CONTINUE READING
