The fibula free flap (FFF) is regarded as the gold standard in mandibular reconstruction. Dental rehabilitation is important to improve the healthrelated quality of life of patients undergoing mandibular reconstruction. FFF provides adequate cortical bone osseous tissue for use in dental implantation. The application of "axial split osteotomy" via a double-barrel fibula graft may enable discrepancies between the native mandible and FFF to be avoided, thereby improving the likelihood of early and successful dental rehabilitation.
