Los puntos de referencia craneomaxilares fueron: cristagalli (Cr), nasion (N), espina nasal anterior (ENA), prostion (Pr), y los puntos de referencia derechos e izquierdos del frontozigomatico (Fzd, Fzi), zygion (Zgd, Zgi), mastoideo (Masd, Masi), yugal (Jd, Ji) y ancho nasal (Nasd, Nasi) (figura 2).
Since it is defined as the most lateral point, or the highest point, of the zygomatic arch, the location of the zygion in relation to the other bony landmarks is highly variable, dependent on the bone structure of the individual in question.
1 te -- undefined in referenced text * 30 - mt -- on the muscle temporalis above the zygion at the height of the ektokonchion 3.
Slight asymmetry in two sides was present at the frontal eminence, porion, gonion, zygion, and Whitnall's tubercle (outer canthus), where left measurements were slightly greater than were those of the right.
Three transverse sections: right outer canthus, left outer canthus (Figure 6), right zygion, left zygion (Figure 7), right supra M2, and left supra M2 (Figure 8).
En cada paciente se identificaron en total 15 puntos cefalo-metricos, 8 de ellos medianos: trichion, supraglabela, glabela, nasion, A' de downs, B' de downs, pogonion y gnathion; y 7 puntos paramedianos: superciliar, supraorbiatrio, infraorbitario, lateral de la orbita (exocanthion), zygion, agujero mentoniano y gonion, los cuales fueron marcados con un lapiz dermografico.
Para los hombres del grupo A, se observaron los siguientes resultados promedio en milimetros en cada punto cefalometrico: Triquion = 4,966; Supraglabela = 4,983; Glabela = 4,833; Nasion = 5,683; A' de downs = 11,003; B' de downs = 11,183; Pogonion = 10,175; Gnathion = 7,541; Superciliar = 4,783; Supraorbiatrio = 6,033; Exocanthion = 5,991; Infraorbitario = 7,166; Zygion = 6,791; Agujero mentoniano = 12,791; Gonion = 17,74.
Para las mujeres del grupo A, se observaron los siguientes resultados promedio en milimetros en cada punto cefalometrico: Triquion = 4,141; Supraglabela = 4,458; Glabela = 4,791; Nasion = 5,191; A' de downs = 8,791; B' de downs = 8,533; Pogonion = 9,191; Gnathion = 5,791; Superciliar = 5,275; Supraorbiatrio = 5,983; Exocanthion = 4,625; Infraorbitario = 5,025;; Zygion = 9,9; Agujero mentoniano = 11,025; Gonion = 14,81.
