04 Dec 2013

A mandibulectomy was performed to remove the patient?s tumor. There after various systems were used to reconstruct the lost bone, without any long term success. The patient then consulted specialists at Tygerburg hospital where it was decided upon to perform a fibular-free-flap. The prosthesis to be fabricated will be a full lower denture supported by implants and retained by a metal substructure with screws.
