Ossifying Fibroma of the Mandible: A Case Report Using Vascularized Free Fibula Flap Reconstruction

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open. 2015 Aug 10;3(7):e470. doi: 10.1097/GOX.0000000000000450. eCollection 2015 Jul.


We report a case of ossifying fibroma of the mandible in a 38-year-old woman. The mandibular resection involved the disarticulation of the condyle while preserving the articular disc. The segmental bony defect was then reconstructed with free fibula flap; the additional contouring of the distal fibular flap was performed during surgery to restore the patient's condylar function. A 2-year follow-up revealed the maintenance of excellent functional and aesthetic outcomes.
