Macroscopic Anatomy of the Sphenomandibular Ligament Related to the Inferior Alveolar Nerve Block
We performed macroscopic observations of the sphenomandibular ligaments, and measured the space that is surrounded by the mandibular ramus and the ligament by using computed tomography. The materials used in this study were 40 heads of 40 adult cadavers. The cadaver head was cut on the mid sagittal plane. The medial pterygoid muscles of the cadavers were removed to observe the ligaments. The attaching style of the sphenomandibular ligament to the mandibular ramus was classified into threedoi:10.1179/crn.2007.025 pmid:17696031 fatcat:wy2rvxcif5dq3gth5ybdzmv5va
