  • AN APPROACH TO MANDIBULAR RECONSTRUCTION ANNALS OF PLASTIC SURGERY Pearl, R. M., Lepore, V., Hentz, V. R., SARIG, A. 1988; 21 (5): 401-417

    Abstract:

    Mandibular reconstruction requires the restitution of both form and function. Proper preoperative planning, vascularized bone grafts, rigid fixation, flexibility of donor site choices, and restoration of labial, buccal, and lingual sulci lead to optimal reconstruction. We have used this approach in 38 patients; bony survival resulted in 37 and primary union in 35. A main limiting factor exists with individuals who have lost extensive amounts of soft tissue and muscle at the time of tumor resection or trauma. Only by attention to details in the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative phases can the best functional and aesthetic results be achieved.
