Abstract

The present report describes the planning and surgery as well as pitfalls and management of a patient with a rare near total mandibular avulsion injury. Avulsion injury of lower jaw can be managed by reposing it to normal site anatomically due to rich blood supply. However sometimes due to severe necrotizing infection or damaged vascular supply, we may loose some part as it gets devitalized specially at floor of mouth leading to oro cervical fistula. For reconstruction there are many techniques but still pectoralis majour myocutaneous flap with skin grafting on other side is not only versatile but it is easy to perform and demands less skill. Such one case sequel is being discussed here which I came across.

Keywords: Lower avulsed jaw, Pectoralis major myocutaneous flap, Oro cervical fistula, Aesthetic, Floor of mouth reconstruction.
