The current article presents the results of an animal study aimed at evaluating the process of bone reconstruction in the precut slots of the bone walls after implantation of the SBIP with side fins (SBIP-3).
Abbreviations: BA = bone area, BIC = bone-implant contact, DSA = direct skeletal attachment, FEA = finite element analysis, H&E = hematoxylin and eosin, IS = implant surface, MMA = methyl methacrylate, ROI = region of interest, rTtBIC = regional total bone in contact with implant, SBIP = skin and bone integrated pylon, SBIP-3 = SBIP with side fins.
The SBIP grew out of a prosecuting attorney's 2002 request for a treatment option based on the Ohio Revised Code's Pre-Trial Diversion Program (Ohio Revised Code, 2002).
The SBIP is an option for males accused of sexual misconduct who are deemed at low risk for recidivism.
Thus, the SBIP is a focused psychoeducational and cognitive-behavioral program, offering individuals a safe environment and information to explore offensive behaviors, develop healthier sexual attitudes and behaviors, and create a personal plan to avoid future inappropriate sexual behaviors.
The SBIP incorporates psychoeducational, cognitive-behavioral, and empathy-building interventions as part of the supportive, focused curriculum.
The SBIP also affords clinicians opportunities to further assess the need for a higher level of care for certain sex offenders, such as those who may not have been accurately assessed during the legal proceedings or the intake process.
Screening for the SBIP begins as a legal process in which client and victim agree in court to participate in the SBIP rather than continue the trial process.
Since the SBIP is new, selection criteria are conservative.
Through the SBIP, all of these components are addressed using a multimodal, multimethod process.
The treatment model of the SBIP is a hybrid of traditional SOT (Foubert, 1998; Johnson, 1992; Kilmartin, 2001) that incorporates psycho-educational, cognitive-behavioral, and empathy-building interventions as part of a supportive, focused curriculum.
