Patients who have previously had surgical correction of major craniofacial deformities will often have residual contour deformities they wish to have improved at a later date. The development of hydroxyapatite cement has simplified these procedures. The setting time is reduced to 5 to 8 minutes by mixing the cement with a phosphate-based solution, increasing the tensile strength, and maintaining the same biocompatibility and osseoconductivity. This study includes 48 patients who presented with… CONTINUE READING
