Objectives: Mandibular reconstruction continues to challenge most head and neck reconstructive surgeons despite the tremendous advances in surgical and fixation techniques. We have recently described the clavipectoral osteocutaneous flap for mandibular reconstruction. This flap encompasses the clavicle and clavicular head of pectoralis major with overlying skin. Our objective was to report our prospective clinical experience with the use of clavipectoral osteocutaneous flap in reconstruction of oromandibular defects.
