Abstract

Reconstruction of the mandible after ablative surgery can be achieved by using preformed trays or trays formed from models produced by computer-assisted modelling systems. The former presents difficulty in matching the required facial contour, jaw relationship and condylar position; while the latter is expensive. This paper presents a simple and inexpensive method of fabricating a custom-made titanium bone grafting tray. The dimensions of the patient's mandible are obtained by clinical measurement. Such measurements are used to construct a mandibular replica. The region to be reconstructed iscarved to produce the ideal shape and dimensions of an edentulous segment. The tray is made either by casting or by swaging. Twenty-one custom-made titanium bone grafting trays have been fitted in patients with encouraging results. This method of bone grafting tray construction is a simple, inexpensive technique for achieving excellent facial contour and functional reconstruction after mandibulectomy.
