The deep circumflex iliac artery (DCIA) osseous or osteocutaneous free flap is a technique for oromandibular reconstruction that maximizes function as well as form and maintains the quality of life for patients who may be cured or may only have a few months to live (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). A modification of the original flap that uses only the medial wall of the iliac crest has contributed a major advance, now allowing the bone flap to fill the defect precisely, thus refining its bony component and reducing morbidity.
