Our understanding of the aging changes involving the cranium and its impact on the overlying soft tissues is limited. This study was designed to look at the changes that occur in the cranium with aging and to propose an additional mechanism for loss of support for overlying soft tissues. One hundred and fifty-seven white individuals 10 males and 10 females in each decade: years, years, years, years, years, years, years, and 8 males and 9 females aged years were investigated.
Insights into Imaging. Injectable fillers are widely used for facial rejuvenation, correction of disabling volumetric fat loss in HIV-associated facial lipoatrophy, Romberg disease, and post-traumatic facial disfiguring. The purpose of this article is to acquaint the reader with the anatomy of facial fat compartments, as well as with the properties and key imaging features of commonly used facial fillers, filler-related complications, interpretation pitfalls, and dermatologic conditions mimicking filler-related complications.

Facial nerve 7th cranial nerve palsy is often idiopathic formerly called Bell palsy. Idiopathic facial nerve palsy is sudden, unilateral peripheral facial nerve palsy. Symptoms of facial nerve palsy are hemifacial paresis of the upper and lower face.
Facial nerve grafting and end-to-end anastomosis in the middle ear - tympanic cavity and mastoid. Send correspondence to. Sectioned facial nerves can be repaired with grafting or end-to-end anastomosis.
Facial nerve paralysis is a common problem that involves the paralysis of any structures innervated by the facial nerve. The pathway of the facial nerve is long and relatively convoluted, so there are a number of causes that may result in facial nerve paralysis. Facial nerve paralysis is characterised by facial weakness, usually only in one side of the face, with other symptoms possibly including loss of tastehyperacusis and decreased salivation and tear secretion.
The injuries were separated into five grades of severity based on neurological examination, including cranial CT. The injuries were also grouped into three categories based on facial regional involvement, using chi-square contingency table analysis. The data demonstrated that patients with upper facial fractures were at greatest risk for serious CHI.
September 22, -- Facial trauma imaging is now dominated by CT rather than radiography, say radiologists who uncovered a decade-long trend at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. But thanks to CT's evolving speed and workflow improvements, the transition has not increased the number of exams or their overall cost. Thousands more suffer moderate and minor facial injuries," noted Dr. Brian Turner, Dr.
In this article, we shall look at the anatomical course of the nerve, and the motor, sensory and parasympathetic functions of its terminal branches. The course of the facial nerve is very complex. There are many branches, which transmit a combination of sensory, motor and parasympathetic fibres.
The facial nerve is one of the key cranial nerves with a complex and broad range of functions. Although at first glance it is the motor nerve of facial expression which begins as a trunk and emerges from the parotid gland as five branches see facial nerve branches mnemonicit has taste and parasympathetic fibers that relay in a complex manner. The facial nerve is the only cranial nerve that may show normal post-contrast enhancement, although this applies only to the labyrinthine segment up to the stylomastoid foramen. Enhancement of the other segments of the facial nerve and other cranial nerves is considered pathologic.
