The Transverse Facial Artery and the Mandibular Condylar Process: An Anatomic and Radiologic Study.

08:00 EDT 6th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "The Transverse Facial Artery and the Mandibular Condylar Process: An Anatomic and Radiologic Study."

In surgical approaches to condylar fractures, there is a risk of damage to the transverse facial artery (TFA) which may in turn account for impaired blood supply to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In order to investigate the risk of damage to the TFA, and prevent lesions to this artery resulting from TMJ surgical procedures, we studied the distance between the TFA and the head of the condylar process.

Catching condyle - Endoscopic-assisted transoral open reduction and rigid fixation of condylar process fractures using an auto reposition and fixation osteosynthesis plate.

Fractures of the mandibular condyle are reported to account for 9 %-45 % of all mandibular fractures. There has been a long lasting controversy on the superiority of different treatment options with e...

Transverse Facial Artery Perforators: Anatomical, Two- and Three-Dimensional Radiographic Study.

Increased anatomical knowledge of skin vascularization, such as the recent description of angiosome and perforasome concepts, has led to important innovations in flap surgery. In this sense, few studi...

Changes in Condylar Position After Mandibular Reconstruction With Condylar Head Preservation by Computed Tomography.

Condylar position can change after mandibular reconstruction using the free fibula flap. The present study evaluated changes in condylar position using computed tomography (CT) after mandibular recons...

The transverse facial artery anatomy: Implications for plastic surgery procedures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The posterior process on the ramus of the mandible composed of two parts: a superior part, the articular portion, and an inferior part, the condylar neck.

Artery originating from the internal carotid artery and distributing to the eye, orbit and adjacent facial structures.

The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.

An extra-anatomic method of surgical revascularization in which the AXILLARY ARTERY is anastomosed to FEMORAL ARTERY.

The application of scientific knowledge or technology to the field of radiology. The applications center mostly around x-ray or radioisotopes for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes but the technological applications of any radiation or radiologic procedure is within the scope of radiologic technology.
