Surgical Management of Nerve Injuries following Ablative and Dentoalveolar Procedures - On Demand Access

Damage to nerves during maxillofacial ablative procedures or dentoalveolar procedures can lead to significant functional deficits, which may include anesthesia, tingling, dysesthesia, electric sensations or allodynia. Microsurgical nerve repair techniques have been developed to improve the environment in which the nerve endings heal, providing a better chance for functional recovery. This 60-minute webinar will cover the techniques and outcomes of microsurgical nerve repair using nerve allografts and conduits. Technical and procedural expertise will be shared through case studies and procedural videos.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify situations where peripheral nerve reconstruction will benefit patients. 
  2. Discuss how to optimize outcomes in the surgical reconstruction of nerves during ablative procedures. 
  3. Review surgical knowledge on the approach and repair of trigeminal nerve injuries and reconstruction.
