OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between the maxillary sinus floor and the maxillary posterior teeth root tips using dental cone-beam CT. METHODS A total of 87 right and 89 left maxillary sinus regions from 92 patients were examined using dental cone-beam CT. Images were analyzed by a specialist in oral and(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the course of the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve (MMBFN) and its relation to the inferior border of the mandible and facial vessels. METHODS This cadaveric study was conducted at the Department of Anatomy, Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Ankara, Turkey from April to September 2012. The 44 facial halves of 22 adult(More)
The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy and reproducibility of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) measurements of a human dry skull by comparing them to direct digital caliper measurements. Heated gutta-percha was used to mark 13 specific distances on a human skull, and the distances were directly measured using a digital caliper and on CBCT(More)
The inferior alveolar nerve is the one of the large branches of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. It is vulnerable during surgical procedures of the mandible. Despite its importance, no anatomical and histological examination has been conducted to provide a detailed cross-sectional morphology of the mandibular canal according to dental(More)
OBJECTIVES Mandibular osteotomies and resection of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis are the mostly performed surgical procedures in the infratemporal fossa, which is in close proximity with the main trunk of the maxillary artery (MA). It is imperative to avoid the trunk or branches of the maxillary artery, otherwise, massive intraoperative or(More)
Anatomical knowledge regarding the long thoracic nerve (LTN) is important during surgical procedures considering that dysfunction of this nerve results in clinical problems. The purpose of this study was to explore the anatomy of the LTN, its origin, configuration, branching pattern, and relationship to the middle scalene muscle (MSM). The course of the LTN(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this cadaveric study was to detect the superior cervical ganglion (SCG) in a topographic manner according to vertebrae and to determine the relationship between the vertebrae, mandibular angle and longus colli muscle through morphometric analysis. METHODS The present study was performed on 40 SCG of 20 human cadavers (16 males, 4(More)
Objective: Nasal alar retraction deformities occasionally require both soft tissue release and large cartilage grafts. The structure between the upper lateral cartilage and the lateral crus of the lower lateral cartilage has been described as fibrous tissue, intercartilaginous ligament, ligament-like arrangement or connective tissue. Despite its importance,(More)
AIM Knowing the distance between the superior and inferior border of Parkinson's triangle and the location of the abducent nerve within the cavernous sinus is important to decrease the complications which may occur during surgery. We aimed to investigate the cavernous sinus to decrease the complications that may occur during surgery to this(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to elucidate the architecture of these fine structures in human fetuses. METHODS The histological examination of medial wall (MW) and lateral wall (LW) was performed in 15 normal human fetuses. Eleven fetuses were female and four were male. The gestational age ranged between 14 and 35 weeks. The weight ranged between 180(More)
