Summary – The paper provides results of treatment of 46 patients
aged 18 to 54 years old with maxillofacial defects and deformations
undergone reparative surgeries with resorbable plates and pins Son‑
icWeld Rx (KLS Martin) in the Centre of Dentistry and Maxillofa‑
cial Surgery of MSUMD from February, 2009 to July, 2011. All the
follow‑ups during 24 months showed stable position of autografts.
There were no cases of deflection of plates or pins that ensured good
aesthetic outcome. The usage of stable resorbable system showed
the same quality as the application of traditional methods of osteo‑
