Figure 1: A black silk suture looped between the tongue musculature and intermediate tendon of the digastric muscle. A similar suture can be seen on the contralateral side. These sutures, when tied, result in fixation of the tongue to the digastric tendons on either side, thus preventing tongue fall postoperatively. The cut ends of the mandible after anterior mandibulectomy can also be seen
