Some patients develops “bleeding of unknown origin or mandibular nerve neurological symptoms” after surgical procedures such as sagittal split ramus osteotomies or implants.(SSRO/BSSRO). In researching the causes of these symptoms, “a number of researchers came to the conclusion that the mandibular nerve canal is not a single structure but rather comprises variations at numerous sites.” According to the results of several studies, the presence of a bifurcated mandibular nerve canal is also an unusual but not exceptionally rare characteristic. They might originate from a single mandibular foramen or at any point along their path inside the mandible.
