Anatomical Variation of Mental Foramen.
Anwar Ramadhan, Elias Messo, Jan-Michaél Hirsch
We have reported a case of triple mental foramina at the right side of the premolar region, which was discovered during reposition and ostheosynthesis of a mandible fracture. A review of the literature, was performed which disclosed no previous clinical cases reported but an incidence of 1.2% of triple foramina after investigating dry skulls or radiographics. The discussion stresses the importance of adequate preoperative radiological examination in the clinical situation especially when closed surgery is planned.
Key words: sensation, mental foramen, mental nerve, mandible fracture, vestibular incision.
