Objective To evaluate the combined functional impact on swallowing of tongue sensory and motor loss using a rat model. Study Design Rats underwent selective neurectomies with transection of the motor (hypoglossal) nerve or motor and sensory (lingual) nerves. Postoperative functional parameters were followed for 2 weeks. Setting Translational research. Subjects and Methods Thirty-six adolescent male Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups: anesthetic (n = 6), sham surgery (n = 8), hypoglossal… Expand
