BACKGROUND Free fibula osteocutaneous flaps are the primary option for reconstruction after segmental mandibulectomies. This study evaluates the impact of CT-guided preoperative planning on operative outcomes after free fibula mandible reconstruction. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of all patients undergoing free fibula reconstruction of the mandible from 2002 to 2011. RESULTS Fifty-seven patients underwent free fibula osteocutaneous flap reconstruction for head and neck… CONTINUE READING
