Defining the Optimal Segment for Neurotization-Axonal Mapping of Masseter Nerve for Facial Reanimation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recently, there has been renewed interest in using the motor nerve to the masseter for facial reanimation. This article aims to identify the ideal segment of the masseter nerve for facial reanimation by mapping its anatomy and studying the axonal count in its branches. METHODS Fifteen fresh cadaveric heads with 30 masseter nerves were dissected… (More)
