Alternative processing technique for MDX4-4210

Stephen G. Alfano, Robert M. Taft

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article presents a tip on processing MDX4-4210 (Dow Corning Corp, Midland, Mich.) to create a smooth, nonporous tissue surface that can easily be kept clean by the patient. Udagama 1 has recommended lining the prosthesis with a sheet of urethane. Although this technique is acceptable, it requires a considerable percentage of the final mixture to be Medical Adhesive Silicone Type A (Dow Corning Corp). The technique presented uses MDX4-4210 exclusively, providing a nonporous tissue surface without the polyurethane lining.
