The normal organization of the rat's infraorbital (IO) nerve was studied using conventional electron microscopic (EM) methods. Just caudal to the infraorbital foramen, at the level of the anterior superior alveolar foramen, the nerve was composed of 18-25 fascicles which ranged from 575 to 87,923 micron2 in cross-sectional area. Complete axon counts from(More)
The infraorbital nerve was sectioned and the ipsilateral whisker follicles were cauterized in hamsters within 12 h of birth. Sixty to ninety days later application of HRP to the proximal stumps of the ipsilateral lingual, inferior alveolar, mylohyoid and auriculotemporal nerves resulted in increased numbers of labeled somata in trigeminal ganglion regions(More)
BACKGROUND The shapes of the eyebrow and upper eyelid are distinctive facial landmarks. In cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, maintenance of the anatomical relations of these landmarks ensures a pleasing postoperative appearance. OBJECTIVES The authors establish normal values for eyelid anthropometry in an Indian population. METHOD This prospective(More)
