As microneural repair techniques of the sensory mandibular branches enter the third decade of their clinical use, there are but a few long-term investigations into the value of these procedures in the treatment of iatrogenic injury to the lingual (LN), inferior alveolar (IAN) or mental (MN) nerve. To establish the efficacy of microneural repair in lesions of the LN, IAN or MN with loss of continuity, the outcome of sensory recovery was evaluated in a series of 92 patients (LN: direct coaptation… CONTINUE READING
