Denervation and beta2-adrenoceptor-agonist administration on craniofacial bone density.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Beta2-agonist medications are thought to have adverse effects on bone density. Surgical denervation and intramuscular beta2-agonist injections appear to have opposing effects on skeletal muscles. The present study has been designed to assess the effects of denervation of the masseter, intramuscular injection of a beta2-agonist and the combination… (More)
