Abstract

Objective: To describe a surgical technique in the treatment of arteriovenous malformations of the mandible

Methods:

       Design:    Case Report

       Setting:    Tertiary National University Hospital

       Participants:        One

Result: A 16-year-old boy underwent resection, extracorporeal curettage, and immediate replantation of the hemimandible for intraosseous arteriovenous malformation. Postoperative follow up and imaging at one- and six-months showed no signs of recurrence, new bone formation and consolidation of the replanted right mandible with good symmetry and function.

Conclusion: Extracorporeal curettage followed by immediate replantation of the resected mandible seems to have yielded good early results in our case and may be a viable alternative especially when access to highly specialized microvascular surgical services is limited.
