Abstract

Reconstruction of bone is often required for large bone defects and also in cases of impaired bone regeneration. Vascularized bone transfer has been widely used for reconstruction, especially for segmental mandibular defects, and for reconstruction of long bones of the upper limb and lower limb after trauma or after significant bone resection for tumour. It has also been used in cases of scaphoid non-union, cases of congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia or forearm and chronic osteomyelitis. In this review, the clinical indications, types of graft and outcomes of the procedure are discussed further.
