James C. Lemon, DDS/Mark S. Chambers, DMD, MS/Peggy J. Wesley, AA/ Gregory P. Reece, MD/Jack W. Martin, DDS, MS

PMID: 8820129

This paper reports a case in which reconstruction of a midface defect was accomplished by using microvascular surgery with free tissue transfer of the fibula for a 55-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma in the nasal vestibule and nasal wall. This technique was developed and first used to reconstruct mandibular defects. Using a surgical template during the midface reconstruction can help the surgeon place the graft in a position that will complement the definitive facial prosthesis, as illustrated in this report.
