PURPOSE Following resection of malignant tumors from the mandible, immediate reconstruction of the discontinuous jaw is commonly performed. The present study aims to define the risks associated with dynamic loading of the reconstructed mandible. MATERIALS AND METHODS Computer-aided design simulations of eight mandibles were produced and termed normal models. The normal models were then modified by removing part of the right body and restoring the defects with bone from the rib or fibula… CONTINUE READING
