Abstract

The purpose of this case report was to assess whether patient-specific implants (PSI: Xillocs) and soft tissue flaps contribute in reconstructing large mandibular defects. Five patients with a medical situation and history not suitable for free microvascular bone flaps were operated with PSI and evaluated. The mean follow-up time was 12 months. The excellent fit, convenient surgery, and esthetic outcome were seen as the major advantages. The PSI can, in the authors' experience, be considered as a useful alternative provided they are well embedded by viable tissue and attached to vital resection margins of the recipient bone.
