A newer technique recently described by Takahashi et al involves using a single plate under the temporalis muscle
in a hairy area by cutting the anterior site of the bone flap at alternate angles.
The Temporalis Muscle
Flap: An Evaluation and Review of 38 Cases.
In FLA Type III, the incision and retraction of the temporalis muscle
were still larger than those in Types I and II.
Caption: Figure 2: Intraoperative photos of the firm, encapsulated tumor penetrating through the temporal bone and involving the temporalis muscle
, (a) before and (b) after debulking the tumor extracranially.
Exposed brain was covered with FL graft; the orbit and frontal sinus were filled with pedicled temporalis muscle
The dose of BTX-A injected into each masseter and temporalis muscle
was 20 U and 15 U, respectively, with a dilution of 1 mL; a 1 mL insulin syringe and a 30 G needle were used with a single injection point.
A biopsy specimen was obtained from the temporalis muscle
of 1 of these patients.
In this study, with the use of a neuromuscular reprogramming device producing a programmed contact of the anterior teeth for the specific time periods proposed by the study, we observed the highest electromyographic values in relation to the resting position at 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes for the left temporalis and right masseter muscles; at 0 min for the left masseter muscle; and at 5 and 30 minutes for the right temporalis muscle
in normal subjects.
It extends up to the infra-orbital fissure and surrounds the temporalis muscle
, and extends down to the superior rim of the mandibular body, and back to the anterior rim of the temporalis tendon and ramus.
Extroceptive suppression of temporalis muscle
activity in chronic headache.
Transfer for paralytic lagophthalmos, which was first proposed by Gillies (2) and later developed by Deutinger et al.
In cluster headaches, the temporalis muscle
seems to be involved.
Experimental data make it clear that removal or denervation of the temporalis muscle
produced marked reduction of the coronoid process of the mandible (Avis; Riesenfeld, 1969).
4) The superficial portion is between the temporalis muscle
and the SLDCF.
The temporalis muscle
is commonly injected with 5 units in four sites for a total of 20 units.
