Abstract

Reconstruction of large anterior mandibular defects is a challenging task. The condition can become even more complex if primary reconstruction fails, leading to loss of the entire midline portion of the lower face with massive scarring of the remaining tissues. Bone transport distraction osteogenesis can provide a viable treatment option for these patients. One of such cases will be presented, followed by a discussion of the advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of the technique.
