INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to identify the fracture resistance of grade 23 Titanium mini-implants recycled for orthodontic purposes and having stayed in the mouth during different periods of time. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 52 hybrid-designed titanium mini-implants, threaded length L=8mm, self-drilling and self-taping were used in 32 patients presenting orthodontic anomalies which required the use of mini-implants. Two types of tests were performed: polarizing optical imagery to assess the surface characteristics of the mini-implants (polarizing optical microscopy) and (mechanical) torsional strength tests, more quantitative, in order to establish the breaking point of the mini-implants during their re-use...

Self-tapping of magnesium screws in hard bone may be a challenge due to the limited torsional strength of magnesium alloys in comparison with titanium. To avoid screw failure upon implantation, the new concept of a rivet-screw was applied to a WE43 magnesium alloy. Hollow cylinders with threads on the outside were expanded inside drill holes of minipig mandibles. During the expansion with a hexagonal mandrel, the threads engaged the surrounding bone and the inside of the screw transformed into a hexagonal screw drive to allow further screwing in or out of the implant...

Surgical navigation systems have been an important tool in maxillofacial surgery, helping surgeons create a presurgical plan, locate lesions, and provide guidance. For secondary facial bone reductions, a good presurgical plan and proper execution are the key to success. Previous studies used predetermined markers and screw holes as navigation references; however, unexpected situations may occur, making the predetermined surgical plan unreliable. Instead of determining positions preoperatively, this study proposes a method that surgeons can use intraoperatively to choose surface markers in a more flexible manner...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Several studies have demonstrated the harmful role of heat generation during implant site drilling in subsequent bone healing. However, heat generation during implant placement should also be carefully considered. PURPOSE: The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate thermal change in a resin block during motorized and manual implant placement with and without saline irrigation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thermocouple probes were placed in resin blocks to measure the thermal change during forty 3...

UNLABELLED: PURPOSE OF THE STUDY In a long-term perspective, it is better to remove implants after fracture healing. However, subsequent full or excessive loading of an extremity may result in refracture, and the bone with holes after screw removal may present a site with predilection for this. The aim of the study was to find ways of how to decrease risk factors for refracture in such a case. This involved support to the mechanical properties of a bone during its remodelling until defects following implant removal are repaired, using a material tolerated by bone tissue and easy to apply...

BACKGROUND: Symptomatic extensor tendon irritation is a frequent complication in volar plate osteosynthesis of distal radius fractures. It is typically caused by dorsal screw protrusion and overdrilling of the dorsal cortex. The use of self-drilling locking screws (SDLS) could overcome both causes. The practical applicability of SDLS depends on two prerequisites: (1) the feasibility of preoperative distal screw length determination, and (2) sufficient primary biomechanical stability of SDLS compared to standard locking screws (SLS)...

This clinical report introduces a method for safe retrieval of a broken implant abutment screw. A reverse-tapping rotary instrument has been introduced in the market and is widely used to retrieve broken screws; however, it is difficult to use the rotary instrument unless an access hole for engagement of the rotary instrument is positioned directly on the center of the top of the broken screw remnant. Poor visibility is another limitation to make an access hole. To keep the position of the rotary instrument at the center of the broken screw, a customized drill guide was fabricated, modifying an implant impression coping with self-cured acrylic resin, all easily found in daily practice...
