Chapter

Abstract

Reconstruction of bony defects with autogenous bone grafts is an integral part of modern treatment concepts in traumatology of the craniofacial skeleton (Tessier 1982; Jackson et al. 1983, 1987; Gruss et al. 1985; Gruss 1986; Marentette 1988; Ilankovan and Jackson 1992; Hammer 1995, 2002; Zins et al. 1995, 1999; Prein 1998; Maniglia et al. 1999; Dempf et al. 1998; Donald 1998; Frodel 2002; Greenberg and Prein 2002).
