Segmental mandibulectomies are performed commonly in patients having benign or malignant pathologies of mandible. For this purpose, Gigli saw is used frequently by most of the maxillofacial surgeons. The two main challenging tasks while using Gigli saw includes passage of the device around the bone which is to be cut and the preservation of the underlying soft tissue from getting damaged by the saw during its movement. Hence, we propose the use of a “Cable guide with hook” which not only helps in easy passage of Gigli saw around the mandible but also prevents injury to the underlying soft tissue while performing mandibulectomy.
