Abstract

BACKGROUND: The purpose of the study was to define the most appropriate management of the giant mandibular ameloblastoma (GMA) in young adults. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on patients with GMA <30 years old. The data collected included initial treatment, tumor margins, reconstruction, and follow-up. Patients evaluated speech, chewing, swallowing, and facial appearance after definitive treatment. RESULTS: Thirteen patients were identified with recurrent solid/multicystic disease requiring further treatment. Definitive treatment involved segmental mandibulectomy and reconstruction with free fibular flap in all patients. Seven patients had immediate reconstruction (group A) and 6 had secondary (group B). Mandibular resection was planned at least 2 cm beyond the radiological limit, free margins were achieved in all patients, and all flaps were transplanted successfully. In group A, functional score was 13.7 ± 0.45 and facial appearance score was 4.5 ± 0.49, whereas in group B were 11.16 ± 0.37 and 3.3 ± 0.5, respectively (both p < .05). CONCLUSION: Aggressive resection of the GMA and immediate reconstruction is strongly advised.
