Eckert, Alexander W./Maurer, Peter/Berginski, Markus/Otto, Cornelia/Schubert, Johannes/Bloching, Andrea/Müller, Alexander
The goal of the present investigation was to evaluate the quality of life and patients satisfaction after maxillectomy and prosthetical rehabilitation over a 30 year period. All obturators were accepted by the patients, aestehtic and functional results were almost good. Based on our investigations we can conclude that the classical prosthetical rehabilitation of maxillary defects is still the therapy of choice due to limited costs and given possibility to control the local recurrence.

Keywords: maxillary defects, obturators, patients satisfaction
