Odyssey of the iliac. ``Mandibular reconstruction by bone free flaps''


The authors proposed here a retrospective analysis of a surgical procedure they performed for long time. It allows to put into questions some established principles, to find some unkwown datas which could be important to predict complications. It is also interesting to discuss about the use of indication and choice of the flaps along years of reconstructive surgery history in the way to improve protocoles and management of those large reconstruction. During ten years in one maxillofacial surgery departement, more than 200 bone free flaps (essentially fibula and iliac crest) have been used for mandibular reconstruction and analyse with a three years follow-up. The global failure rate is estimated as 28 % included all various complications from fistulas to infections. Five different points are discussed from the ambiguity of the reported studies to the way of doing of such surgery. It is also pointed out the importance of the biological dimension of all surgical procedures and the place of clinical figures regarding of the technical processes which usually forget the main clinical purpose.
