The nasal dorsum is innervated by the supra- and infratrochlear nerves, which are blocked at its location just medial to the eyebrow.
However, when both the infratrochlear and the external nasal nerve (not Hutchinson's sign) were involved, 100% of patients developed intra-ocular involvement.
In some cases, the infratrochlear, infraorbital, and nasopalatine nerves were also blocked with a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine 1 to 2% with 1/100,000 epinephrine.
