One of the most serious complications after head and neck radiation is osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the jaw. The etiology of ORN is extraction, minor dental procedure or dental implant surgery. When ORN of the jaw progressed to stage III, free fibular flap is the most useful methods for reconstruction. In this case report, a 67-year-old ORN patient who underwent fibular free flap reconstruction using simulation surgery with 3-dimensional rapid prototype (3D RP) model was reviewed. After partial

Patients reported improved food intake after operation without pus discharge. Functional and esthetic results showed successful reconstruction.
