PURPOSE This study compared vascularized and nonvascularized bone grafts for the reconstruction of segmental defects of the mandible. PATIENTS AND METHODS The results in 39 patients having vascularized bone grafts (38 fibulas and one iliac crest) and 29 patients having nonvascularized bone grafts (26 iliac crest [22 corticocancellous block grafts, four cancellous bone grafts in a tray] and three rib grafts) for segmental mandibular reconstruction were evaluated in terms of overall success… CONTINUE READING
