    Abstract

    Considerable difficulty has been encountered by surgeons in the restoration of the completely resected body of the mandible. Recent experimentation has resulted in the evaluation of a graft technique involving a metallic mesh implant which contains a surface decalcified homogenous cadaver mandible which has been reduced on the inner surface to accommodate a particulate graft of cancellous bone and marrow taken from the patient's ilium. The details of one such case will be presented; the patient was a 20-year-old woman who had undergone a resection of the mandible. After the surgical procedure she was subjected to a course of hyperbaric oxygen therapy involving two atmospheres of 100 per cent oxygen 1 hour per day for 30 days. The subjective and objective results of such treatment and the effect on the postoperative course of the osseous regeneration will be presented.
