Semin Plast Surg 2020 May 6;34(2):86-91. Epub 2020 May 6.

Department of Otolaryngology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York.

Palatomaxillary reconstruction presents a unique challenge for the reconstructive surgeon. The maxillofacial skeleton preserves critical aerodigestive functions-it provides a stable hard palate to support mastication and separate the nasal and oral cavities, and buttress support to provide adequate midface contour. Free tissue transfer has become a routine part of the reconstructive ladder in managing palatomaxillary defects. Read More

Survival of dental implants placed in vascularised fibula free flaps after jaw reconstruction.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Aug 5;46(8):1205-1210. Epub 2018 Jun 5.

Private Practise MKG am Theater, Neuenweg16, 35390, Giessen, Germany.

Purpose: Ablative oncological surgery to treat head-and-neck cancer often triggers a requirement for jaw reconstruction. Modern surgical procedures using free microvascular flaps afford acceptable outcomes in terms of restoration of bony and soft tissue defects. A fibula free flap is often the preferred flap, as the bone length is considerable and a two-surgeon approach is possible. Read More

Microsurgery 2019 Feb 7;39(2):182-187. Epub 2018 May 7.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Mayo Clinic Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona.

Early soft-tissue coverage is critical for treating traumatic open lower-extremity wounds. As free-flap reconstruction evolves, injuries once thought to be nonreconstructable are being salvaged. Free-tissue transfer is imperative when there is extensive dead space or exposure of vital structures such as bone, tendon, nerves, or blood vessels. Read More

Reconstruction of major defects of the jaws.

Authors:
M D Batstone

Aust Dent J 2018 03;63 Suppl 1:S108-S113

Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, University of Queensland, Herston Qld, Australia.

Prosthetic replacements in the 19th and early 20th century were superseded by pedicled flaps and obturators. These have subsequently been superseded by free tissue transfer which currently is the mainstay of reconstructive jaw surgery. Although malignant and benign processes of the jaws are the predominant cause of segmental defects, a significant proportion still occurs due to trauma, or even iatrogenic causes such as radiotherapy.
