In Summer 2002, a patient with frequent epistaxis was admitted to the San Gerardo Hospital. Local examination showed a big mass in the nasal fossa. TC and RMN revealed a diffuse erosion of the palatal bone and infiltration of the maxilla. The tumor was removed and histological examination showed a gland carcinoma. The young age of the patient and the need of an adequate bone reconstruction led to use osteoperiosteal calf bone graft. Subsequently, using local anesthesia, 6 implants were positioned. After normal healing and the period of osteointegration, a Toronto bridge was made on implants that the patient wears with no problem.
