Time is critical when a patient is undergoing surgery. The longer the patient's internal tissue is exposed, the greater the risk. When a patient can be quickly closed up and begin recovery, chances are greater for a healthy recovery. These concerns are on the minds of maxillofacial surgeons in Belgium, who often need to reconstruct bones in a patient's skull, such as a jaw ravaged by cancer or an eye socket crushed in a car accident.
