OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the onset period of trigeminal nerve hypoesthesia during bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, with the use of the trigeminal somatosensory-evoked potential (TSEP). STUDY DESIGN Subjects were 10 patients with mandibular prognathism who underwent setback surgery. Intraoperative TSEP was measured 4 times: just before the commencement of the surgery, immediately after the induction of general anesthesia; after the medial periosteal dissection of… CONTINUE READING
