The goal of the research is to examine the different reconstruction solutions, which are used for the often-occurring jaw cancer resection and finding those areas that show higher potential risks of implant fracture. Within the research some finite element analysis based on data provided by Computer tomography have been concluded. The model in practice is built up with the most frequently used reconstruction plates and monocortical screws. Both lock and non-lock system solutions were examined. The results supporting the practice showed that indeed the maximal stress would rise in the implants closer to the resection in case of screws and in case of plates this will occur in the closer areas of resection within the thinner cross-sections.
