NUNEZ-CASTANEDA, José; CHANG-GROZO, Silvana; IZQUIERDO-VELA, Gisell  and  IWAKI-CHAVEZ, Roberto. Virtual planning and 3D printing model for mandibular reconstruction with free fibular flap in mandibular ameloblastoma. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2019, vol.36, n.3, pp.222-226. ISSN 1728-5917.

Ameloblastoma is a benign, locally aggressive tumor that causes facial deformities and a tendency to recur. The objective of the treatment of ameloblastoma is the complete elimination of the tumor, the restoration of function and the maintenance of the aesthetic appearance. The case of a 19-year-old male presenting a tumor in the mandibular region is presented and a consultation for surgical treatment is accessed. Virtual planning and 3D printing model were performed for mandibular reconstruction with fibula-free flap and stereolithographic model for the management of its pathology. A favorable post-operative evolution evolved; and a pathology compatible with intraosseous mandibular ameloblastoma of the plexiform pattern. Although surgery is the treatment of choice for the diagnosis of ameloblastoma; Virtual planning and the 3D printing model for reconstruction are useful tools in the management of this pathology.

Keywords : Ameloblastoma; Computer-aided design; Stereolithography; Free tissue flaps.
