Abstract

Background: The purpose of this study is to describe the vascularised anterior rib flap on sectioned images and surface models using Visible Korean for medical education and clinical training in the field of mandibular reconstructive surgery.

Materials and methods: Serially sectioned images of the thorax were obtained from a cadaver. Significant structures in the sectioned images were outlined and stacked to create a surface model.

Results: The PDF file (8.45 MB) of the assembled models can be downloaded for free from our website (http://vkh.ajou.ac.kr/Products/PDF/Vascularized_anterior_rib_flap.zip). In this file, important anatomical structures related to the vascularised anterior rib flap can be examined in the sectioned images. All surface models and stereoscopic structures of the vascularised anterior rib flap are expressed in real time.

Conclusions: We hope that these state-of-the-art sectioned images, outlined images, and surface models will help students and trainees gain a better understanding of the anatomy of the vascularised anterior rib flap
