Abstract [en]

Objectives

To retrospectively follow up patients rehabilitated with implant supported constructions after partial mandibular resection and reconstruction through free fibula flap in Umeå university hospital and to compare the results with the literature.

Material and methods

Data were collected from 44 patients between January 2000 and November 2017. A systematic review was performed in PubMed by combining following keywords; Fibula flap, Mandibular reconstruction, Tumour. 46 articles met our inclusion criteria. The information was analysed and summarized in Excel.

Results

44 patients (31 men/13 women) with a mean age of 62 years (range 35-80) were identified. Main treatment indication was malignant tumours (84,1%). Failure occurred in 5 cases. Four patients (10,3%) received four implants each with implant installation 20-30 months after mandibular reconstruction.The literature review contained 1680 patients with a mean age of 47,1 years (range 8-88). 1422 patients were categorized by gender (997 men/425 women). Malignant tumours were the dominant reason for the free fibula flap (65,2%). Benign tumours were the most common diagnosis among patients receiving implants after free fibula flap (40,4%). 473 implants were placed in 156 patients, (average 3,3/patient).

Discussion/Conclusion

Both the literature review and our retrospective follow up showed a male dominance with malignant tumours among patients reconstructed with free fibula flap. The indication for implant rehabilitation differs between our follow up (malignant tumours) and the literature (benign tumours). A minority of the reconstructed patients are rehabilitated with implants in a separate procedure 20 – 30 months later.
