In max­il­lo­fa­cial sur­gery, ­the pos­sible caus­es of tran­si­to­ry or per­ma­nent dam­age to ­the infe­ri­or alveo­lar ­nerve or to ­the infe­ri­or orbi­tal ­nerve ­are numer­ous (trau­ma, remov­al of ­benign or malig­nant ­lesions, extrac­tion of wis­dom ­teeth, orthog­nath­ic sur­gery). The ­study ana­lysed 123 ­healthy sub­jects in ­order to estab­lish a ­series of param­e­ters ­that ­may in ­future be ­used as nor­mal val­ues in inter­pret­ing elec­tro­myo­graph­ic ­data ­from ­patients ­who ­have under­gone dam­age to ­these ­nerves. These ref­er­ence ­data ­are impor­tant ­not ­least ­because in ­future ­they ­may be util­ised to ­resolve med­i­co-­legal con­tro­ver­sies, ­for exam­ple in cas­es of iat­ro­gen­ic ­lesions.
