AbstractPurpose: To describe a method for stereomodel-assisted fibula flap harvest and mandibular reconstruction utilizing multiple fibula bony segments. Materials and Methods: Stereomodels of the mandible and the fibula were obtained from computed tomography scan data. The length of fibula to be harvested was predetermined by measurement of the stimulated of existing mandibular defect on the mandibular stereomodel. A titanium reconstruction plate was shaped to fit the original mandibular contour. The stereomodel fibula was divided into multiple segments and the segments were placed on the mandibular stereomodel in the ideal edentulous position against the upper dentition and simulate the angular contour of the mandible for best comesis. The predetermined bony segments were measured and the system was then transferred to the patient in the operation theater using acrylic locating splints. Results: Experience with 8 patients (2 primary and 2 secondary reconstructions) indicated that a good clinical outcome in terms of mandibular contour and positions of the reconstructed segment was possible. The outer facial appearance and symmetry were consistently excellent and no instability or malposition of the graft segments was encountered. Conclusion: Stereomodel-assisted fibula flap harvest and insertion is a worthwhile attempt at improving the results of mandibular reconstruction and deserves further attention. © 2007 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
