- Maxillary defect may be induced by trauma, inflammation, cyst, tumor and surgical procedure. In case of limited wall defect, free
bone graft has been preferred. But it has some problems such as postoperative bone resorption and soft tissue inclusion to recipient
site. And we can not use free bone in the case who has inflammation in the donor site. So we used the micro-titanium mesh as reconstructive
material for the maxillary wall defect.
We had operated 8 patients who were diagnosed as maxillary partial defects from June 1997 to September 1998 in the Chin-Hae military
hospital. They were 1 case of antral wall defect, 1 case of palatal wall defect, 5 cases of infra-orbital wall defects and 1 case of oroantral
As a result, the micro-titanium mesh has shown the morphological stability and biocompatibility and it could be used in case who
has infection. And mesh structure could prevent soft tissue ingrowth to bony defect area. Thus it can be used to the case of maxillary
partial defect successfully.
