Dr. Ted Leem answered:

What is the likelihood of a repeat pleomorphic adenoma causing damage to the mandibular nerve when the tumor is located low internally in the right neck/jaw and close to the jugular . The child had her first removed in 2009 when she was 9, she is no

Location

Cancer
It depends on the location. If it is near the mandibular nerve and there was previous surgery at that site, the risk is higher.

Is permanent nerve damage possible with chin augmentation? I've heard stories about permanent nerve damage causing partial paralysis as a result of plastic surgery. Is this a risk with chin augmentation? .

Chin Aug Nerve Inj

Paralysis
Complications and side effects are very uncommon with chin augmentation. However, there is a small degree of risk. The most likely side effect is altered sensation in the chin and lower jaw, which may be temporary or permanent depending on the extent of the surgery. A plastic surgeon will be able to tell you if you are at particular risk for this type of side effect at time of consultation. https

I'm age 27, have one wisdom tooth, looks to be horizontal in x-ray, upper jaw. Is nerve damage likely during extraction? Don't want to be numb forever

Likely no

Tooth_extraction
Any surgery can potentially result in numbness, however, transient or longer lasting numbness following wisdom tooth removal is usually associated with the teeth removed from the lower jaw. Indefinite numbness in either jaw is a rare event and high risk cases can usually be determined beforehand. Talk to your surgeon about your concerns.

Dr. Majid Jamali answered:

Is it true that having a chin implant could cause facial nerve damage? I want to have chin implant surgery to correct a weak jaw line. I've heard that this procedure sometimes causes nerve damage and patients look like they have suffered a stroke. What ar

Chin

Chin_implant
I prefer chin repositioning than an implant. It looks more natural. Either procedure have low chance of nerve damage. This nerve is sensory and not motor. So other people will not notice, if there is a deficiency. Remember, chin surgery is not a replacement for jaw surgery.

Dr. Allen Seely answered:

If I had nerve damage what would the treatment be?

Pain management

Open-uri20120314-27988-1p8mkpp
Nerve damage implies PERMANENT damage so medications that help nerve pain are recommeded. Post herpetic neuralgia (due to SHINGLES) is a CLASSIC example of nerve pain which responds to Lyrica or Gabapentin. Tricyclic antidepressants (e.g. Elavil & others) have be used for years to treat 'nerve pain' Nerve blocks (injections) also are helpful.Surgery may help if the 'damage' is NOT yet permanent

L1fracture and reproductive nerve damage possible?

Pudendal Nerve

Forearm_fractures
Root value is S2, S3, S4. If you have a L1 fracture, (pretty far: 5-6 inches from S2: L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5) in order to affect spinal cord and S2,3,4, a lot more things including strength in lower legs would be affected. If your strength in your legs fine, it would be difficult to imagine you affected the fibers coming out lower. http://www.pudendal.com

What is the definition or description of: Nerve damage?

A

Nerve_injury
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend surgical repair if needed

Dr. Aileen Shieu answered:

Can nerve damage heal?

Yes

Nerve_injury
If the damage does not cause the nerve to be completely cut, then healing can occur. If a nerve has been cut, it will need to be reconnected in order to grow. Nerve grows about 1 mm/day, so depending on where the injury is, it may take over a year for recovery. It is difficult after a nerve is cut to get 100% recovery, but some return of sensation can be expected after repair.
