While free flap is the standard of care for bony reconstruction of the mandible, complex oro-mandibular defects after oral cancer ablation require adequate skin and soft-tissue replacement for optimum functional results. We report a case of multifaceted oral cavity resection effectively reconstructed in single stage by the three-way pectoralis major osteomyocutaneous flap. The technical aspects, benefits, deficiencies, and literature review are discussed. In the background of multiple recurrences and comorbidities, this flap is a viable alternative and should be given due reconsideration in oral cancer surgery. This gains more relevance in the context of developing countries.
