Abstract Share this page

Between 1988 and 1992, 80 Brånemark-type implants were inserted in 18 patients during reconstruction of the mandible or maxilla with vascularized iliac crest or scapula grafts with or without additional soft tissue pedicles. In these procedures, nine vascularized bone grafts were combined with a primary insertion of 32 implants and a secondary insertion of 48 implants. Twelve patients are currently wearing the implant-borne dentures. From 32 implants inserted primarily, eight could not be used for prosthodontic rehabilitation because three were lost with a graft, three were left as sleepers, and two demonstrated a lack of osseointegration. None of the implants inserted secondarily in grafts were lost. Primary implant insertion should be performed only in close cooperation with the prosthodontist and in selected cases, for example, in free-end reconstruction of the mandible with a straight graft and where a limited number of implants is needed. Although restoration of masticatory function in patients with head and neck cancer can be achieved, compared with a healthy control group, functional impairments remain. Patients subjectively favor the nonreconstructed side of the mandible or maxilla for chewing. These findings can be correlated with a postoperative follow-up investigation using a miniature force transducer and the T-scan system.
