  • We studied the outcome and complications seen with use of poly-p-dioxanone pins and those seen with use of stainless-steel Kirschner wires after chevron bunionectomy in 114 patients (144 feet) [8].
  • OBJECTIVE: An absorbable pin made from poly-p-dioxanone (Orthosorb, Johnson and Johnson, UK) was used to internally fix osteotomies of the mandibular ramus [9].
