The authors discuss the possible vascular lesions that may occur during mandibular sagittal split ramus osteotomies with particular regard to the maxillary artery. A case of surgical lesion of the maxillary artery is presented and its course and anastomoses are analyzed.
The ligation of the external carotid artery and its principal branches is the treatment of choice in case of maxillary artery lesion which is a life threatening event and needs immediate intervention.
