The trochlea and superior oblique muscle tendon separate the medial and central fat compartments in the upper lid. The purpose of this study was to determine anatomical landmarks to predict the location of and avoid injuring the trochlea and superior oblique muscle tendon with orbital fat resection during upper blepharoplasty. The trochlea and superior oblique muscle tendon were identified in 14 cadaver heads. Bony anatomical landmarks were identified to predict the oblique vector along which… CONTINUE READING
