Titanium mesh plate (Ti mesh) used for bone augmentation inadvertently comes into contact with medical gloves during trimming and bending. We tested the hypotheses that glove contact degrades the biological capability of Ti mesh and that ultraviolet treatment (UV) can restore this capability.

The AR and GC meshes were hydrophobic, but GC mesh was moredoi:10.2334/josnusd.17-0443 fatcat:qqecdyuqg5cuvhanazzoyftfly
