The United States and Swedish Experience With Osseointegration and Facial Prostheses

Stephen M. Parel, DDS/Anders Tjellström, MD, PhD

PMID: 1843497

A survey of experience treating patients with extraoral implants for facial prosthesis retention in 13 United States centers and in Sweden has been completed. Patients who have not received radiation for elimination of malignant disease can be treated with reasonably good expectations for long-term success. Reported success rates indicate that patients who have received radiation should be selected carefully and treated with caution, since overall success rates in this category are disappointingly low. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1991;6:75-79.)

Key words: extraoral implants, facial prostheses, multicenter study, radiation therapy
