Tissue response to titanium plates: a transmitted electron microscopic study.

Abstract

PURPOSE This study investigated the tissue response associated with titanium plates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Titanium miniplates were used to stabilize fractured bones and a bone graft in 14 patients. At the time of plate removal, the osteosynthesis sites were carefully examined macroscopically. After the removal of the plates, biopsies of the 14 soft… (More)
