Bioresorbable implants challenge the paradigm of permanent metallic implants where the implant can support and facilitate the remediation of dysfunction in bone trauma. Degradable orthopaedic implants are attractive as they reduce the need for secondary surgery, thus reducing health costs and related morbidity associated with additional surgeries. .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
