Coronal images were slightly better because of thicker axial slices obtained because of which fractures of the frontozygomatic
suture were not identified.
The craniotomy begins with the keyhole, that is medial to the frontozygomatic
suture and exposes the dura mater of the anterior fossa superiorly and the periorbita inferiorly separated by the orbital roof.
In this study, the parameters studied were distance between the SOF or SON and the nasal midline, distance between the SOF or SON and the frontozygomatic
At the pes anserinus (parotid plexus), the facial nerve typically divides into two main trunks: the frontozygomatic
trunk and the cervicofacial trunk.
5% followed by infra orbital rim 3% and frontozygomatic
Age changes in the human frontozygomatic
suture from 20 to 95 years.
Orbitozygomatic fractures were exposed using incisions in the gingivobuccal sulcus, subtarsal approachs to the lower eyelid and through a lateral extension of the supratarsal fold in the frontozygomatic
Further, inferior border of the frontal lobe is represented by an oblique line drawn from the frontozygomatic
suture to the pterion (Williams et al.
The middle third of the face begins inferior to the frontozygomatic
suture laterally and contains numerous cavities and sinuses that are reinforced horizontally and vertically by bony struts or buttresses.
Titanium Cranioplasty in Front osphenoteporal ("Pterional") craniotomy.
Present study shows the slight variation in the measurements because of the number of temporal and zygomatic branches also varies so Incisions superior or inferior and parallel to the course of the facial nerve, can provide access to the frontozygomatic
suture and the superior and lateral orbit without damaging its branches.
PF: distance from the center of the pterion to the anterior aspect of the frontozygomatic
