Clamping Means for Securing Surgical Implant
U.S. Patent No: 55,580,247
In today's dentistry, alternative approaches to the problem of mandibular reconstruction are important in restoring the mandible, which may have been lost through tumor resections, bone defects, pseudoarthosis or osteomyelitis.
Also for use in those situations in which the condyle or condylar process must be rebuilt or replaced, where portions of the condylar process such as the head, neck, and pterygoid fovea may have deteriorated through disease or from accidental injury. A condylar process arm may be fabricated as a substitute bearing surface for the defective natural condylar process.
