Abstract

 This study was conducted to determine postoperative donor site complications after bone harvesting from iliac crest for maxillofacial reconstruction in patients presented at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS Hospital Islamabad). One hundred and ten patients having bony defects in maxillo­facial region had undergone iliac crest grafting over a period of one year. The data were recorded on a strurctured proformas and were entered in SPSS version 17.0 (SPSS,Inc, Chicago, IL,USA). Analysis was done to determine the frequency and percentages for all variables. Morbidity to donar site (Illiac crest ) was evaluated postoperatively at 3rd month.. Among 110 patients, male to female ratio was 1:1.2. Out of total 16.4% had mild pain , 0.9% had gait disturbances with walking aid needed. It was concluded that complications after iliac crest harvesting was found to be moderate to low, but the procedure was still necessary and frequently used with predictable results in terms of pain and gait disturbance at donor site.
