How Are Skull Implants Fixed To The Head?
Q: Dr. Eppley, How can the occipital implant be fixed in the head?
A: The fixation any skull implant is by both screw fixation and the tightness of the tissue pocket in the short term and by tissue ingrowth through the implant in the long term. (through the created perfusion holes in the implant)
