NEUROSENSORY EVALUATION OF INFERIOR ALVEOLAR NERVE FOLLOWING MANDIBULAR FRACTURE FIXATION USING MODIFIED ZUNIGA AND ESSICK’S PROTOCOL
Abstract: Mandible is most common bone of the craniofacial skeleton to receive impact from various aetiologies, vehicular mishaps being the most common. The injury to the neurovascular bundle damages the inferior alveolar nerve which manifests as neurosensory deficit. The present study evaluates these changes to assess the outcome and recovery time of such nerve injury.
