Soft Tissue Reactions Around Percutaneous Implants: A Clinical Study on Skin-Penetrating Titanium Implants Used for Bone-Anchored Auricular Prostheses
Holgers, K. M. / Tjellström, A. / Bjursten, L. M. / Erlandsson, B. E.
Since 1979 osseointegrated implants with percutaneous abutments have been used for retention of craniofacial prostheses. This article focuses on the skin condition around the titanium implants that are used for anchoring auricular prostheses. A total of 136 implants (from 32 patients) were followed for 3 to 66 months. These figures represent 708 visits, a total observation time of 3,468 months of clinical performance.
