Several types of flaps and techniques have been used in the reconstruction of maxillomandibular defects. Myocutaneous flaps of the fibula, the scapula, the rib, the iliac bone, the radial forearm, the rectus abdominis, the anterolateral thigh, the latissimus dorsi, and the pectoralis major have been used either alone or in combination for this purpose.

The aim of the current study was to discuss a 17-year-old patient with a gunshot injury who underwent orbitomaxillomandibular bone reconstruction using free fibular graft shaped as 3 pieces and soft tissue reconstruction using lower trapezius myocutaneous flap in conjunction with the surgical approach used.
