Medpor Vs Silastic Comparison?
Advantage Medpor: * Tissue ingrowth decreases movement, which prevents erosion of the underlying bone * Tissue ingrowth permits access of the implant to the immune system, reducing the long-term risk of implant infection * Lower risk of implant rejection. * Can be carved better, to solve asymmetries. Disadvantage Medpor: * Harder to remove * Risk of infection first few weeks higher (why ?) * More difficult to place. Do I miss something ? My doc prefers Medpor, so I was jut wondering. Thx
