PMID: 11280364

In this study, computed tomograms (CTs) of 70 patients were examined for visible vascular canals in the mandible as well as for their localization, incidence, diameter, and content. All patients examined showed at least 1 lingual perforating bone canal in the mandible. Since such vascular canals are encountered regularly, routine CT examination is recommended prior to implant surgery to help avoid severe bleeding complications during the placement of implants in the interforaminal region.
