      Experience gained in the treatment of thirteen cases by simultaneous mandibular resection and reconstruction via the oral route indicate that this approach is just as successful as the extraoral one. Also, we know that it is possible to transplant large bone segments to infected areas and that the success of this method cannot be attributed to the effect of antibiotics alone. Furthermore, it is suggested that in the young patient a transplanted cortex-free segment from the iliac crest will, with function, grow and assume the form of the replaced bone.
