Author(s): Dr. Tahir Ahmad, Dr. Rajender Bothra
Abstract: Patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancers are treated with resection of lower jaw, resection of tongue accompanied with reconstruction using muscle flaps. A number of post-operative complications arise out of this invasive surgical treatment compounded with post-operative chemotherapy and adjuvant radiotherapy. Andy gump deformity is one of rare mandibular deformity characterized by retrognathic mandible, absence of lower lip and severe facial asymmetry. In this case series we report two among many patients who underwent central arch commondo operation for squamous cell carcinoma with and by Jump deformity.
