Anatomical Identification and Possibilities of Transfer of the Masseteric Nerve for Facial Reanimation
DISCUSSION: In accordance with previously published studies, the MN was reliably found at the height of the mandibular notch and, in the vast majority of cases, was suitable for tension-free coaptation with the zygomatic branch. Differences to the existing literature, however, can be seen in the length of the nerve available for nerve transposition and the frequency of its division into several branches before entering the masseter muscle. In German-speaking countries, Cross-Face Nerve Grafting (CFNG) is still the preferred method for facial reanimation surgery. However, MN transfer is also well established by now, both as...
