PURPOSE The effect of the type of nerve injury on subjective sensory disturbances and recovery has not been addressed in orthognathic surgery. Using neurophysiologic monitoring during 19 bilateral sagittal split osteotomy operations, we were able to classify intraoperative inferior alveolar nerve injuries as either axonal or demyelinating. This study aimed to analyze the quality and extent of the subjective sensations experienced by the patients after these 2 injury types at different time… CONTINUE READING
