Titanium mesh implants are used for various purposes in craniotomy. While delayed implant exposure and thinning of the overlying skin are well known complications, the mechanism has never been elucidated. Here, we review our cases and propose a mechanism for titanium mesh implant exposure.

Bone augmentation is used to supplement bone defects during dental implant treatment. In this technique, the area filled with bone prosthetic material is covered with an artificial space-making device...
The Authors' main purpose was to simulate the behavior of a titanium mesh implant (TMI) used to reconstruct the orbital floor under the stress of a blunt trauma.
OBJECTIVE Digitally designed titanium plates are commonly used for the reconstruction of craniofacial defects, although implant exposure (referred to as failure) is one of the major complications. Met...
There is growing concern that titanium particles may play a role in peri-implant breakdown. Ultrasonic scalers are routinely used in the debridement of peri-implant lesions. This in vitro study is des...
Titanium mesh is a popular material for cranioplasty. However, long-term outcomes of these reconstructions remain unknown. We aimed to compare long-term outcomes between patients undergoing both (1) s...
Evaluation the amount of bone height gained when using titanium mesh in closing the lateral window of the sinus compared to collagen membrane.Evaluation the quality of new bone gained when...
Hypothesis: Polycaprolactone / Tricalcium Phosphate Orbital (PCL / TCP) Implant is as effective in the reconstruction of the Orbital walls as Titanium Mesh implant. In this study we will...
This study will involve placing donor bone into the back of lower jaw then covering with a newly designed titanium mesh. The mesh will then stay in the mouth for 4 months before it will be...
It is a comparative study between custom-made ceramic barrier and titanium mesh for augmentation of atrophic posterior mandible.
The purpose of this study is to assess the change of crestal bone level at the Titanium Zirconium (TiZr) compared to Titanium (grade IV) implant between surgery and 6, 12, 24, and 36 month...
Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
Separation of particles according to density by employing a gradient of varying densities. At equilibrium each particle settles in the gradient at a point equal to its density. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
A technique used to separate particles according to their densities in a continuous density gradient. The sample is usually mixed with a solution of known gradient materials and subjected to centrifugation. Each particle sediments to the position at which the gradient density is equal to its own. The range of the density gradient is usually greater than that of the sample particles. It is used in purifying biological materials such as proteins, nucleic acids, organelles, and cell types.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
