The position of mandibular foramen is variable at the medial aspect of mandibular ramus. Nevertheless its location is useful for the oral and maxillofacial surgeon in orthognatic surgery, especially in vertical ramus osteotomy (VRO) procedure. The aim of our study is to analyse the position of mandibular foramen in order to provide simple and reliable surgical landmarks. A radio-anatomical study was undertaken on normal mandibular panoramic X-ray examinations. Precise reproductions were… CONTINUE READING
