      CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT THE SENSORY INERVATION OF THE FACE (Abstract): One of the fundamental functions of the face is the ability to receive multimodal sensory informations from the environment and to convey it to the cerebral cortex for processing.The restoration of this function of the face is expected and essential for the optimal outcomes following facial transplantation. The main sensory branches that supply the face are the supraorbital, supratrochlear, infraorbital and mental. The knowledge of their anatomy is crucial in preserving these nerves with the donor tissue and in the recipient site.
Key words: FACIAL TRANSPLANTATION, SENSORY, NERVES, SUPRAORBITAL, MENTAL, INFRAORBITAL
