Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Titanium mesh has good effect in the treatment of orthopedic repair and reconstruction which has been widely used.

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the reliability and superiority of titanium mesh in the treatment of orthopedic diseases, such as skull defects, bone defects of the limbs, large piece chest wall defects, metacarpal and phalangeal fractures and maxillofacial fracture.

METHODS:

Clinical and experimental researches on the application of titanium mesh in the repair and reconstruction of orthopedic diseases were collected, including maxillofacial fracture, large piece chest wall defects, skull defects, limb long-bone shaft defects and metacarpal and phalangeal fractures. The effect of titanium mesh for the treatment of orthopedic diseases was evaluated.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

Compared with other repair materials, titanium mesh has significant advantages in orthopedic repair and reconstruction, but it has certain disadvantages when used as the reconstruction material, such as the poor X-ray translucent. So, during the treatment of orthopedics, defects in different parts should be treated with different methods in order to reduce the incidence of complications and obtain the better effect.
