Abstract: Objective · To design osteotomy templates for the construction of mandibular defectusing fibular flap in a reverse engineering technique approach. Methods · Five patients with mandibular defect were enrolled and their treatments were designed in a three-dimensional (3D) virtual planning software package. The 3D printing model with shaped reconstruction plate and titanium-screws were under CT scanning and the image was reconstructed and registered back to the original mandible and fibula in a surface-best-fit method. Then the osteotomy template with screw holes of shaped reconstruction plate was designed and fabricated. The reconstruction of mandible with multiple fibular segments was guidedthe osteotomy template. Results · All the five patients were discharged successfully with satisfied outcome. The deviation between virtual plan and actual results were calculated: max deviation (3.53±2.33) mm and the angle deviation 3.31.±1.48.. Conclusion · The accuracy of the osteotomy template is satisfied and can be applied to the clinical use.
