Specifically relating to distraction osteogenesis surgery (surgery to lengthen part of the anatomy, in this case the lower jaw) this technology provides the possibility to reduce costs across the healthcare system by providing care at an earlier stage for patients who would traditionally require a longer-term tracheostomy.

Conclusions: Distraction osteogenesis may be the best biological method of restoring the integrity of a bone in segmental bone loss.
