Sammanfattning (abstract):
Abstract Background. Reconstruction after substantial osseous, cutaneous and muscular tissue loss following a mandibular resection is a challenge. The use of a fibular free flap is an outstanding - but delicate - treatment option. These grafts, using the double-barrel technique, can achieve an almost complete reconstruction of the mandibular defect. The challenge posed by these treatments is to achieve an end result that is both functional and esthetically pleasing; an endeavour that requires a defined prosthetic plan prior to complete microsurgical reconstruction.Materials and Methods. Using a detailed clinical case, this article discusses the importance of planning the mandible reconstruction with double-barrel fibular graft in view of an implant-supported fixed partial denture. Immediate implant loading was even possible in this case.Results. This approach allows to improve the final esthetic and functional result of such a complex rehabilitation.Conclusions. Maxillofacial reconstructive surgery should seek to establish a near-as-normal anatomical situation that will allow a permanent implant rehabilitation that is both esthetic and durable.
