This paper describes a new protocol for mandibular reconstruction. Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology was used to manufacture custom-made cutting guides for tumor ablation and reconstructive plates to support fibula free flaps. CT scan data from a patient with an odontogenic keratocyst on the left mandibular ramus were(More)
A test of the accuracy in transferring the virtual data into the surgical environment was carried out. Differences between the virtually planned and the actual position during surgery of the rapid prototyped guides and the bone plates were investigated. The accuracy of the method was evaluated in terms of the precision of cuts in the mandible, the final(More)
