Neat. Resorbable fixation isn't strong enough for jaw surgery. I suspect they could use it in some places, surgeons just don't like to experiment. I hear they're inflammatory as well. Some day maybe but it's hard to compete with metal.

I noticed this ridiculous apparatus. Anyone still want to do a LeFort 3? That's right, you'll get 6 screws in your skull.
