The major problems in dealing with established mandibular loss are severe soft-tissue contracture and a limited number of recipient vessels. The skin portion of the iliac osteocutaneous flap often necrotizes in cases without perforators of the deep circumflex iliac vessel. To overcome these problems, eight patients with established mandibular loss and no skin perforators of the deep circumflex iliac vessel were treated with a sequential vascularized iliac bone graft and a superficial circumflex… CONTINUE READING
