Currently, various PNFS, from supraorbital to auriculotemporal nerve stimulation have been reported with successful management of epicranial headaches.
It has been proposed that the clinical benefit for temporal placement may be based on coverage of the terminal branches of the trigeminal nerves, along with the communicating branches between the auriculotemporal nerve and the lesser occipital nerve.
In particular, involvement of the auriculotemporal
and inferior alveolar nerves in the spread of skin cancers and parotid tumours was emphasised.
A primeira abordagem referente a sua etiologia foi relacionada a perda de dentes posteriores, ocorrendo o deslocamento posterior e o distal do condilo, provocando pressao sobre o nervo auriculotemporal
e estruturas do ouvido (MOLINA, 1995; POVEDA RODA et al.
In this paper, we describe the use of a superficial cervical plexus block combined with an auriculotemporal
nerve block for drainage of dental abscess in three adult patients with difficult airways.
That tumor might have arisen from any of the lower four cranial nerves where they pass through the skull base, from the auriculotemporal
nerve, or from the otic ganglion (which acts as a relay station for parasympathetic secretomotor fibers to the parotid gland).
1,3,12) Nonphysiologic forms include the auriculotemporal
(Frey's) syndrome and diabetic gustatory sweating.
the following nerves were blocked bilaterally: the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves were blocked as they emerge from the orbit with 2 ml of solution using a 23G needle introduced above the eyebrow perpendicular to the skin; the auriculotemporal
nerves were blocked with 2 ml of solution injected 1.
The prestyloid compartment contains the internal maxillary artery, the lingual nerve, the inferior alveolar nerve, and the auriculotemporal
Traumatic neuromas of the head and neck have been reported in the oral cavity, the maxillary division of the trigeminal nerve, the inferior alveolar nerve of the mandible, the auriculotemporal
nerve, the glossopharyngeal nerve, and the facial nerve.
Anastomoses are well established with the infraorbital, buccal, auriculotemporal
, and mental branches of the trigeminal nerve.
The postganglionic fibers travel along the auriculotemporal
nerve and into the parotid gland, where they control glandular secretions.
