infraorbital nerve

(redirected from Infra-orbital nerve)

in·fra·or·bit·al nerve

[TA]
the continuation of the maxillary nerve [CN V2] after it has traversed the pterygopalatine fossa and enters the orbit, via the infraorbital fissure, it is then transmitted by the infraorbital canal to reach the face; it supplies the mucosa of the maxillary sinus, the upper incisors, canine and premolars, the upper gums, the inferior eyelid and conjunctiva, part of the nose, and the superior lip.
Synonym(s): nervus infraorbitalis [TA]

infraorbital nerve

The terminal branch of the maxillary nerve (CN V2). It is a sensory nerve that leaves the floor of the orbit through the infraorbital foramen and innervates the upper incisors and canine teeth, the mucosa of the maxillary sinus, and the skin of the lower eyelid, cheek, side of the nose, and upper lip.

The data are of clinical importance as a guide for tracking the infra-orbital nerve, and necessary for its desensitization during the manipulations in the skin of the upper lip, nostril and face at the level of the foramen.
Similarly, V2 may be involved at the cavernous sinus, pterygopalatine fossa (which houses the pterygopalatine ganglion), the pterygomaxillary fissure en route to the infratemporal fossa, or in the roof of the maxillary sinus (infra-orbital nerve).
The disadvantages of this procedure are facial swelling as a result of premaxillary fibrosis and thickening, facial pain and numbness from injury to the infra-orbital nerve. (7) Numbness of the teeth and gums is also one of the possible complications.
The data are of clinical importance because the facial tuberosity is very prominent even in live animals as a guide for tracking the infra-orbital nerve, and necessary for its desensitization during the manipulations in the skin of the upper lip, nostril and face at the level of the foramen.
The data is of clinical importance because the facial tuberosity is very prominent even in live animals as a guide to tracking the infra-orbital nerve, and the data obtained in this study will greatly facilitate precise tracking of the nerve, the desensitisation of which affects the skin of the lip, nostril and face on that side of the level of the foramen.
