Abstract

Restoration of good morphology and function are primary goals in the reconstruction of oral cavity defects. Several free flaps have been used in the reconstruction of bone and soft tissue defects in the oral cavity. We are reporting our experience in oromandibular defect reconstruction using radial forearm free flap (RFFF) and vascularized fibular free flap (VFFF). Of 228 total patients who had free flap reconstruction, 106 patients required reconstruction of oral soft tissue with an RFFF, and 122 patients required reconstruction of mandibular defects with a VFFF. Predictable results in terms of function and esthetics with minor donor site complications can be expected with the use of RFFF and VFFF for defects of the oral cavity.
