Abstract

The use of fibular free flaps has become established as a reliable and popular method for reconstruction of segmental mandibular defects. The role of routine preoperative angiography remains controversial. Sixty four digital subtraction angiograms were studied in a series of 39 consecutive patients clinically judged to be satisfactory candidates for fibula free transfer. Angiographic findings revealed vascular anomalies in 10 extremities (15.6%). Regarding the high potential for significant donor site morbidity authors consider vascular imaging essential part of preoperative evaluation.
