Mutations in LRRK2, encoding the multifunctional protein leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), are a common cause of Parkinson disease. LRRK2 has been suggested to influence the cytoskeleton as LRRK2 mutants reduce neurite outgrowth and cause an accumulation of hyperphosphorylated Tau. This might cause alterations in the dynamic instability of microtubules(More)
The facial nerve branches are vulnerable during manipulation of the buccal fat pad. The aim of this study is to describe the precise anatomical interrelation among the buccal fat pad, buccal branches of the facial nerve, and parotid duct. Nineteen hemifaces of Korean cadavers (11 male and 8 female) fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution were dissected. An(More)
The aim of this article is to describe anatomical detail of the course and territory of the horizontal branch of the supraorbital nerve, which connects with temporal branch of the facial nerve. Eighteen hemifaces of Korean cadavers (11 male, 7 female) fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution were dissected. All 18 specimens had horizontal branch of the(More)
The purpose of this study is to clarify a pattern of the temporal branch of the facial nerve in the upper orbicularis oculi muscle (OOM) and an impact in exploiting the frontalis myofascial advancement flap. The authors investigated the pattern of the temporal branch of the facial nerve in the upper OOM in 20 cadavers. The highest and lowest level of the(More)
Bilateral hypertrophy of the temporal muscle can give the impression of an aggressive and violent facial appearance. The authors performed closed selective denervation of the deep temporal nerve using electrocauterization. Before the procedure, precise anatomical knowledge of the deep temporal nerve is mandatory. Sixteen hemifaces of Korean cadavers were(More)
Interpolation artifact is known to occur when the heart rate is decreased lower than the critical value for the specific pitch. The purpose of our study is to determine the minimum heart rate (minHR) for the specific pitch that provides images without interpolation artifact when using dual-source computed tomography (DSCT). We scanned the ‘thin slice(More)
