Have There Been Any New Advancements In Iliac Crest Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Has there been any new advancements in iliac crest implants? How long do you see before this procedure is cleared for use in the US?

A:Iliac crest implants can be done in the U.S. as of right now using the custom implant design process. But you will likely never see a formal FDA-approved iliac crest implant made as an off the shelf device because the demand for its use is too low to justify the economic effort of any company to do so for an aesthetic product.
