Outlines for the CGT (complicated guiding templates). (a) Overview of the complicated cutting guide, detachable reconstructive template, and in-site reshaping guide. (b) Application of the complicated cutting guide on the surface of mandible. (c) Application of the detachable reconstructive template that integrated with prebending titanium plate to restore the bony parts position after mandibulectomy. (d) Application of the cutting guide in iliac area. (e) Application of the in-site reshaping guide. (f) Postoperative panoramic radiograph showed the defect was reconstructed with iliac bone precisely.
