abstract

  • Extensive composite defects of the posterolateral mandibular can be repaired effectively using soft-tissue flaps alone. When reconstructing a defect involving (1) the posterolateral mandible, overlying soft-tissues, and external skin and/or (2) the posterolateral mandible and two or more adjacent soft-tissue zones, the use of a soft-tissue flap alone can maximize success.
