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.
In the case of Luc's abscess, the infection is located beneath the temporal muscle
Cranial size, muscle masses and the fiber length of the temporal muscle
are the best predictors of bite force: species with a larger cranium, a larger temporal muscle
mass and shorter temporal fiber lengths bite harder (Dumont & Herrel, 2003).
On examination, a painless tumor approximately 2 cm in size was easily palpable when the patient flexed the temporal muscle
. An ortopantomogram was normal.
Mandibular coronoid process is an anterior eminence of the mandibular ramus, where the temporal muscle
The temporal muscle
was scraped from the temporal bone and a 5 x 5 mm temporal craniotomy was performed using a small dental drill.
The reconstruction of the orbital wall was obtained by means of a right temporal muscle
flap using orbital access.
Morphology, function, and posture were shown to be closely interrelated and influence each other.9 It is well established that head-neck backward bending increases the electromyographic (EMG) activity of the masticatory elevator muscles, especially the temporalis muscle.2,42,43 The possible mechanism for this includes tonic neck reflex,43 role of gravity,14,15 and body position.8,15 Funakoshi and Fujita42 determined that the craniocervical dorsoextension produced a greater muscular activity in temporal muscle
and a moderate increase in the masseter muscle.
The superficial fascia of the temporal muscle
Incise the temporal muscle
along the direction of the muscle fibers through pterion and expand it with the mastoid expander after separation.
Differentiation in the temporal muscle
of the guinea pig.
