abstract

  • The impact of plastic surgeon on EF recovery with unilateral NG would suggest that technical factors play a role in EF recovery after unilateral NG. Meticulous surgical technique with proper identification of proximal and distal recipient nerve endings may improve the chance of EF recovery. The variation in recovery rate among plastic surgeons would imply that there is a benefit to unilateral NG in EF recovery.
