One month after the operation, the impulse value of M3 decreased and those of M4, M5 and HL increased. However, 3 months after the operation, the impulse values of M4 and HL increased. The difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). No significant change was observed 6 months after the surgery. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001; N = 29. P < 0.05 was considered significant
