A total of 1000 human temporal bones were used to study the prevalence of carotid canal dehiscence, microdehiscence, and thin bony coverage. Additionally, this study compares the prevalence according to sex and temporal bone age. A carotid canal dehiscence was detected in 77 (7.7%) bones. It was present bilaterally in 23.2% of the paired temporal bones. The prevalence of carotid canal dehiscence decreases with increasing temporal bone age. It was found in 10 (15.9%) bones in the younger than 2… CONTINUE READING
