Designing 'internal' devices can be more challenging - as they must be oriented properly and fit to the patient easily during placement.
The Molina device is a straightforward design for midface distraction through an internal gear system.
The system is simple yet flexible: A single Molina Orbital-Malar Distractor is sufficient for treating plagiocephalism. The use of two such distractors allows you to advance the entire midface. And frontofacial monobloc advancement is possible if four distractors are used simultaneously.
Depending on distractor placement, a slight rotary movement can also be achieved, allowing excellent correction of more complex, multiple malpositions as well.
