Resorbable Plates Prevent Regression in Pediatric Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Mandibular distraction osteogenesis is an important technique to correct the pediatric hypoplastic mandible. Regression of the mandible after distraction continues to be a challenge, with some studies reporting up to 22% to 56% decrease toward predistraction length in the first year. We hypothesize that a resorbable plate placed after removal of… (More)
