The purpose of this study was to confirm the length and kind of donor nerves used in nerve grafts for reconstruction of inferior alveolar nerve defects. The authors conducted a retrospective study of surgeries that were performed between 1977 and 1996. A total of 20 patients underwent nerve grafting procedures during this period. The greater auricular nerve was selected as the donor nerve in 16 cases, while the sural nerve was selected in 4. Mean lengths of donor nerves were 6.1ע82.7 cm anddoi:10.2209/tdcpublication.44.29 pmid:12956086 fatcat:a2uze774erhuveyh3rxnedeeay
