Fascicular characteristics of the human inferior alveolar nerve.

Abstract

Ten human inferior alveolar nerves were inspected microscopically to determine the fascicular characteristics. The mean number of fascicles was 18.3 per nerve, the mean fascicular cross-sectional area was 1.4 mm2, and the mean total nerve cross-sectional area was 4.6 mm2. The fascicular characteristics of the human inferior alveolar nerve as they relate to nerve repair and nerve grafting are discussed.
