Abstract

Hydroxyapatite and poly-L-lactide plates are often used for maxillofacial surgery. These plates take 3 to 4 years to resorb completely, leading to the possibility of a foreign-body reaction. A 20-year-old woman who developed a foreign-body reaction to the plates was reported. Based on review of the relevant literature, foreign-body reactions have often been reported with this plate. Long-term follow-up is warranted to evaluate patients using this plate in maxillofacial surgery.
