Abstract

Many different flaps have been used for reconstruction of the oral mucosa and the maxilla and mandible after tumor resection. These flaps might contain bone and might be free or locoregional. This study presents 2 cases of intraoral reconstruction using a submental osteocutaneous perforator flap to reconstruct the maxilla in one case and the mandible in the other. A reverse-flow flap was used for maxillary reconstruction In these cases, the functional, esthetic, and oncologic outcomes were favorable at 9 and 12 months of follow-up.
