Abstract

The use of biodegradable rigid fixation for plastic and reconstructive surgery opens a new and exciting chapter in bony fixation. Various materials enable reconstructive surgeons to employ an array of techniques to achieve satisfactory orbital reconstruction. Further research, along with clinical studies, will undoubtedly lead to better understanding and greater application of these materials.
