Abstract A method for stable integration of titanium-implants in bone tissue has been developed at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Screw shaped implants have been inserted in the temporal bone using a delicate surgical technique. After healing-in of the implants it is, in a later séance, possible to penetrate the skin to establish a reaction-free percutaneous passage. An up to 5-year clinical follow-up has shown the possibilities of this new method in the treatment of patients with e.g. certain hearing disorders or facial defects after tumour surgery.
