Bone grafting is one of the most commonest operations performed in orthopaedics, reconstructive surgeries and maxillofacial surgery. Its indications include non-union, delayed union, packing bone cysts and cavities, elevating depressed articular fractures and reconstruction of large bone defects. For small-sized defects intra oral graft sites are often preferred in maxillofacial reconstruction because of its close proximity, but for large scale reconstruction extra-oral graft sites are preferred. Autografting from the iliac crest is the gold standard. Osteocutaneous free flaps to restore segmental bony defects include the iliac crest, scapula, radius, and fibula, which have radically improved aesthetic and functional outcomes in the ensuing decades.This book includes all intra oral bone graft harvest site as well as most of the extra oral bone graft harvest sites, their harvesting techniques, advantages, disadvantages and complications. So, this book will be useful to clinicians and clinician scientists in the field of Orthopaedics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Maxillo-Facial Surgery who are commonly presented with the clinical problem of reconstructing large bone defects.
