Postauricular fascia is thicker than temporal fascia
but can be folded to wrap diced cartilage grafts.
Because this layer is continuous laterally with the temporal fascia
overlying the temporalis muscle, it is particularly sensitive to jaw tension.
The flap was separated from the underlying deep temporal fascia
easily, as the loose areolar tissue on the deep surface presents minimal resistance to elevation.
More proximally, it was dissected superficial to the temporal fascia
We have developed a new technique for reconstructive cranioplasty that involves the use of hydroxyapatite cement and a pericranial/deep temporal fascia
The tympanic membrane perforation was freshened, and a temporal fascia
underlay graft was placed.
We performed a right subtotal petrosectomy, a repair of the tegmen defect with a temporal fascia
and fat graft secured with fibrin glue, and a blind sac closure of the right external auditory canal.
The eardrum had been reconstructed with temporal fascia
in an overlay fashion.
A 3 x 3-cm area of the loose areolar fascia overlying the temporal muscle and a 3 x 3-cm area of temporal fascia
Some otologists use a postauricular approach with temporal fascia
Autograft temporal fascia
tissue was used, and the graft was obtained by a supra-auricular incision.
We use temporal fascia
and split calvarial bone grafts harvested from the adjacent outer cortex.
