Abstract

The temporal branch of the facial nerve is at risk for injury during a variety of facial surgical procedures because of its location. This study found the nerve to be in a slightly less vulnerable position during a preauricular approach than Al-Kayat and Bramley's classic study (0.8-3.5 cm), and also established a narrower range of nerve position variability.
