Management of Maxillary Ameloblastoma with Vascularized Bone Graft

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Maxillary ameloblastoma is quite rare especially the one that outcomes facial deformity. Eighty-five percent of ameloblastoma cases happen to the mandible, mostly in the molar-ascending area. About 15% of ameloblastomas occur in maxilla. We are reporting a maxillary ameloblastoma case of an Indonesian patient. Bilateral Weber Ferguson approach was performed to facilitate total maxillectomy and continued by fibular graft reconstruction. The Weber Ferguson provides a wide access to all areas of the maxilla and orbital floor. From three month post operative evaluation we achieved favourable aesthetic and functional results for patient.
