Abstract

A new method for obtaining corticocancellous bone grafts for use in orthognathic and facial reconstructive surgery is presented. By raising an osteoperiosteal flap from the crest of the ilium and removing a medial corticocancellous bone block, graft site morbidity is minimized, the patient's return to ambulatory status is hastened, and an excellent graft is procured. © 1984, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
