Long-term outcomes of pegged and unpegged bioceramic orbital implants
Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 08/16/2012
Karslioglu S et al. – Despite potential complications that can occur as late as 10 years, bioceramic porous implants yield satisfactory long–term results. Existence of a peg system appears to play a role in the increased rate of late–onset complications. Further investigations on new and safer pegging systems should be conducted.
