It was only after much trouble that we succeeded in laying bare some portions of the temporal muscle
which appeared of less stony rigidity than other parts of the frame, but which, as we had anticipated, of course, gave no indication of galvanic susceptibility when brought in contact with the wire.
These grafts consist mostly of fascia of the temporal muscle
, tragal perichondrium, tragal and conchal cartilage, periosteum, vein, adipose tissue, subcutaneous tissue, fascia lata, skin of the ear canal, and heterotopic skin tissue.
Incise the temporal muscle
along the direction of the muscle fibers through pterion and expand it with the mastoid expander after separation.
To prevent serous collection, human fibrin sealant is injected through the incision into the plane between the subcutaneous tissue and the temporal muscle
Intra-operative pain occurred mainly during head fixation, dissection of the temporal muscle
, traction of the dura close to the territory of the meningeal artery and of the intracerebral blood vessels.
In the temporal muscle
, the activity was present in 23-36% while the masseter in 55% of cases.
Various techniques have been suggested for the closure e-g buccal mucosal graft, split thickness graft , allogenic graft, tongue flaps, fibromucosal plate flaps (the push back technique), facial artery musculo-mucosal flaps (FAMM Flap) , temporal muscle
flaps and buccal fat pad flap.
Tympanoplasty with fascial tissue taken from the temporal muscle
after straightening the anterior wall of the auditory meatus.
The masseter muscle covering the lateral side of the joint was composed of three sections; the temporal muscle
covering the cranial side of the joint was composed of one section; the lateral pterygoid muscle covering the medial part was made up of two sections; and the medial pterygoid muscle which didn't surround the joint was also made up of two sections.
Using the transposed temporal muscle
is superior to the other methods.
Thus, the lifting movement of the jaw (mouth closed), the masseter muscle has the essential role, also the temporal muscle
and the pterygoid muscle help.
Moyers investigated electromyograms of children with class II division I malocclusion and found dysfunction of temporal muscle
in habitual occlusion and at rest.
