PMID: 10212548

Extraoral implants are used increasingly frequently in the wake of ablative tumor surgery and adjuvant radiation or chemotherapy for craniofacial rehabilitation with facial prostheses and epitheses. However, high rates of nonintegration and implant loss have been reported for extraoral implants, especially for those in the periorbital region following irradiation. This case report and corresponding histologic evaluation describe the osseointegration pattern in irradiated periorbital bone, based on the example of 3 retrieved, clinically integrated, stable titanium screw implants. (Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 1999;14:290–294) Key words: bone-titanium interface, extraoral implants, facial prostheses, irradiated bone, osseointegration
