Indication Statement

RAPIDSORB® Fixation System is intended for use in fracture repair and reconstructive procedures of the craniofacial skeleton in pediatric and adult populations. In addition, resorbable meshes, sheets, screws and tacks may be used in non‐load bearing applications for maintaining the relative position of, and/or containing, bony fragments, bone grafts, (autograft or allograft), or bone graft substitutes in reconstruction of the craniofacial or mandibular areas.
