Intraosseus Arteriovenous Malformation of the Mandible: Extracorporeal Curettage and Immediate Replantation
Objective: To describe a surgical technique in the treatment of arteriovenous malformations of the mandible
Design: Case Report
Setting: Tertiary National University Hospital
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.
