Using resorbable screws for fixation of cortical onlay bone grafts: an in vivo study in rabbits.


PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to test bioresorbable screws as an alternative to titanium screw graft fixation. When cortical onlay grafts are used, it is necessary to rigidly immobilize them with titanium screws into the recipient site. The screws must be removed before placing implants into this site.
