abstract

  • Plating combined with ICBG is a safe and effective method for radius donor-site reconstruction. This technique maximizes both early and late strength of the radius while allowing for harvest of greater segments of bone. Decreased donor-site morbidity combined with more bone available for use in oromandibular reconstruction may tip the risk-benefit scale in favor of more widespread ORFF use.
