Abstract: Mandibular segmental defects happen as a result of trauma, infection or resection. There exist no ideal method to repair such defects. Each method advocated has its advantages and disadvantages. Alloplastic replacement has been advocated but problems exist. This paper reviews the challenges faced for reconstructing mandible defects and the different attempts to improve alloplastic replacement with an emphasis on previous research done on using a modular endoprosthesis for mandibular body replacement. The authors outline previous research in adapting a titanium endoprosthesis to the mandible and future avenues for research.
