PURPOSE This study investigated neurosensory disturbances in patients after orthognathic surgery in relation to differences in mandibular splitting methods and degree of surgical skill. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty-five patients who had undergone bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomies (SSRO), and 21 (group L) who had undergone intraoral inverted L ramus osteotomies (ILRO), were examined for postsurgical neurosensory disturbances. Twenty-two (group S1) of the SSRO patients were treated by 11… CONTINUE READING
