OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the added value of preoperative computerized tomographic angiography (CTA) and three-dimensional reconstruction of the lower limb in vascularized fibular flap transfer. METHODS: Eighteen patients who underwent mandibular or maxillary reconstruction with a vascularized fibular flap were studied retrospectively by image analysis. The original DICOM data of preoperative CTA were analysed and applied to the reconstruction of the lower limb using SimPlant Pro software (version 11.04). RESULTS: The course of the peroneal artery in 17 patients was the same except for one patient. The peroneal artery originates from the posterior tibial artery. The original external diameters of the peroneal artery were 2.99 ± 0.64 mm. The perpendicular lengths from fibular head to the origin of the peroneal artery and to the fibular perforator vessel were 42.88 ± 8.84 mm and 174.55 ± 25.62 mm, respectively. CONCLUSION: The course of peroneal artery was relatively invariable, its original external diameter was thick. Preoperative CTA and three-dimensional reconstruction of the lower limb, which are noninvasive, accurate and direct-viewing methods, play an important, preoperative role in vascularized fibular flap transfer for lower limb vascular assessment.
