Abstract

Class VI atrophy according to Cawood still represents a major challenge in pre-prosthetic surgery.Reconstruction of mandibular and maxillary bony defects using microvascular techniques is safe and reliable. Thefibula, due to its morphological properties, is ideal for alveolar ridge augmentation and its donor site morbidity isthe lowest among vascularized bone flaps. In this paper, we report the first case, to our knowledge, of extremeatrophy of both jaws, successfully treated by simultaneous bony augmentation of the maxillary and mandibularalveolar ridges with just one free fibula flap. Pre-operative planning, surgical technique and prosthetic restorationare discussed in detail.
