Abstract

Summary:

The induced membrane technique for reconstruction of bone defects has proved its effectiveness and is now widely accepted. The 2 stages procedure, implying a cement spacer in the first stage and a huge bone graft in the second stage, responds to rigorous technical details involving each phase of the procedure. Prerequisites for the technique, cement spacer, bone fixation, time between the 2 stages, grafting, and postoperative course are reported and discussed.
