A novel modification of a bone repositioning device previously published by the same authors is introduced. A flexible tube to define the intersegmental bony relationship is filled with light-cured resin. It solidifies following exposure to strong visible light for about 1 min. This technique can be used for bone positioning after mandibular resection surgery and during positioning of the proximal segment after sagittal split ramus osteotomy. The authors also propose a simple method for determining the contour of the reconstructed mandible to regain the original shape and form. The advantage of this technique is its simplicity and flexibility compared with other methods of bone positioning during mandibular segmental surgery.
