Abstract

The J-bone graft technique has been used for the reconstruction of glenoid surfaces with significant bone loss in orthopedic surgery in which the J-shaped bicortical bone graft is harvested from the iliac crest. Because of the osteotomy design, the press-fit fixation into the defect is obtained. In this technical note, the authors adopted this technique to oral and maxillofacial surgery and described the technique for the reconstruction of the jaws.
