Hi everyone,
I need help regarding a patient with a stucked in cover screw whith a broken screwdriver tip in the screw head. I would appriciate any ideas how I could either remove the cover screw or use the implant for it's purpose. Implant type: AlphaBio SPI (3.3/13). Site: Lower rirgth 2.
Many thanks

If nothing else works maybe could remove the implant with a trephine. Then decide whether to put a new implant immediately or wait for the wound to heal and then place new implant.

If you post some images that would help.

Regards,

Dr. Veerendra Darakh
