Abstract

Abstract A series of 14 mandibular reconstructions in 13 patients with chips of autogenous, cancellous bone and marrow supported by a titanium mesh tray is presented. The mandibular defects were the results either of operation for carcinoma of the tongue and the floor of the mouth or trauma. Satisfactory rehabilitation was accomplished in 11 patients. The advantages of this technique are ease of accomplishment, ability to replace long and awkwardly shaped segments, less shrinkage due to bone resorption, and shorter intermaxillary fixation.
