Gonzalez-Perez et al state that an epicutaneous patch test for metal allergy (“chrome cobalt molybdenum Co-Cr-Mb” – the correct chemical symbol for molybdenum is “Mo”), T.R.U.E. test® (SmartPractice Denmark ApS) was administered preoperatively.
1Presumably, but not stated clearly, this testing was administered to all patients before they had initial temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacements using either the Christensen (CS), or the Biomet® systems (BS).
