  Purpose

Primary objective : To evaluate the quality of fractures setting and osteotomy of the facial massif osteosynthesised with resorbable device PLLA/PGA compared with usual Titanium plates.

Secondary objective :

  • To evaluate the resorbable device ergonomy versus Titanium.
  • To evaluate the clinical tolerance of resorbable device versus Titanium.

Hypothesis :

Osteosynthesis with resorbable device demonstrates a non inferiority success probability regarding the success observed in osteosynthesis with Titanium, with a less important probability of re-operation.

Study duration : 14 months for each patient.

Study treatment :

  • Group I : Resorbable device PLLA/PGA.
  • Group II : Titanium device.

Study visits :

- Screening visit - Baseline with randomization and surgery - Day1 - Day 21 - Day 45(Traumatology)/Day 90 (orthognatic) – Month 6,12 and 14.

Randomization : Stratification by centres, mono or bimaxillar surgery and traumatologic or orthognatic criteria.


Condition Intervention
Maxillo-Facial Surgery Device: Resorbable device PLLA/PGA Device: Titanium device

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: RESTIT : Evaluation of Resorbable Osteosynthesis Devices Versus Titanium in Maxillofacial Surgery – A Prospective Randomized Trial in Therapeutic Strategy

Further study details as provided by Hospices Civils de Lyon:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The quality of fractures setting and osteotomy of the facial massif osteosynthesised with resorbable device PLLA/PGA will be evaluated by the notion of unperfect resuts.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of device ergonomy :
  • The operative time of each surgery will be monitored, to compare operative duration of operations ; the only variable will be the osteosynthesis method.
  • Clinical tolerance of the devices
  • pain (Visual Analogic Scale),
  • local inflammation,
  • scar disunion,
  • infection,
  • subcutaneous or submucous palpation of the plates.

Estimated Enrollment: 308
