Anatomical study of the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves: a new classification and application to understanding some migraine headaches.

Summary of "Anatomical study of the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves: a new classification and application to understanding some migraine headaches."

The frontal nerve is the largest branch of the ophthalmic nerve. This nerve gives rise to two terminal branches, the supraorbital (SON) and supratrochlear nerves (STN). To our knowledge, there are no reports describing the detailed proximal course of these nerves while inside the orbit. Therefore, the goal of this study was to clarify the anatomy of the SON and STN inside and at their exit from the orbit.
