    Recientemente, he sido diagnosticada con un tumor en mi mandíbula izquierda.

    Es nombre del tumor es Ameloblastoma. A los Rayos X tiene apariencia benigna, sin embargo, su crecimiento es similar al de un tumor maligno, destruyendo el hueso, y en este momento tengo un alto riesgo de fractura.

    Estoy la espero de los resultados de la biopsia y en búsqueda de recaudar fondos para el tratamiento, que será quirúrgico.

    La cirugía prevista en mi mandíbula izquierda es:

    Hemimandibulectomía parcial con preservación del cóndilo mandibular. (Consiste en quitar gran parte del hueso de la mandíbula izquierda, cortando por el hueso sano y preservando la articulación)

    Reconstrucción con Injerto óseo tomado del hueso de mi cadera y estabilización con placa de titanio angulada y tornillos.

    Es preciso realizar previamente un modelo en 3D de la mandíbula para que el cirujano pueda darle forma a la placa y que ésta se pueda adaptar bien.

    Los fondos recaudados son para pagar el costo del modelo en 3D, la placa de titanio, los tornillos, la cirugía, los medicamentos y la rehabilitación posterior.


    Recently, I had been diagnosed with a bone tumor in my left mandible.

    The tumor name is Multiloculated Ameloblastoma. At Rx, it seems to be benign, however, his grow is similar to a malignant tumor, destroying the bone, and at this time I have a very high risk of fracture.

    I´m waiting for biopsy results and looking for rise funds for the treatment, that it will be surgery.

    The propossal surgery in my left mandible, is as described:

    - Partial mandibulectomy with removal of tooth No.35 and tissue distal with maintenance of the mandibular condyle, plus

    - Autologous, cortical cancellous bone graft from the iliac crest to mandible with rigid bone titanium plate fixation.

    The estimated cost of surgery is USD 2000, including titatium plate cost, and I need help for it.
