By Nobutaka Yoshioka, Albert L. Rhoton

Nobutaka Yoshioka, MD, PhD and Albert L. Rhoton Jr., MD have created an anatomical atlas of surprising precision. An remarkable instructing software, this atlas opens a different window into the anatomical intricacies of complicated facial nerves and similar structures.

An the world over well known writer, educator, mind anatomist, and neurosurgeon, Dr. Rhoton is seemed via colleagues as one of many fathers of contemporary microscopic neurosurgery. Dr. Yoshioka, an esteemed craniofacial reconstructive health care provider in Japan, mastered this particular dissection procedure whereas project a fellowship at Dr. Rhotons microanatomy lab, writing within the preface that inside such precision pictures lies capability for surgical innovation.

Special Features:

  • Includes a couple of 3D glasses to view the awesome photos which are to be had on-line within the Thieme MediaCenter
  • Exquisite colour images, ready from conscientiously dissected latex injected cadavers, display anatomy layer by means of layer, with extraordinary aspect and clarity

  • Major sections contain intracranial area and cranium, higher facial and midfacial area, and reduce facial and posterolateral neck region

Organized by way of sector, every one layered dissection elucidates particular nerves and buildings with pinpoint accuracy, delivering the clinician with in-depth anatomical insights. particular scientific factors accompany each one photo. In tandem, the pictures and textual content supply an outstanding beginning for figuring out the nerves and buildings impacted through neurosurgical-related pathologies in addition to different stipulations and injuries.

An really beautiful anatomical reference, this e-book is a must have reference for citizens, and complicated clinicians focusing on neurosurgery, facial cosmetic surgery, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgical procedure, and craniofacial surgery.

Posterior auricular v. , Cervical br. Posterior belly of digastric m. Retromandibular v. Fig. 6. The midfacial region. The intraparotid facial nerve branches are shown. The buccal branches generally originate from both the upper and lower trunk of the facial nerve and connect with the marginal mandibular branch. indd 43 facial nerve on exiting the stylomastoid foramen. The facial nerve exits about 1 cm below and medial to the tip of the tragal pointer. However, the cartilage is mobile and asymmetrical, with a blunt irregular tip, so it might be difficult to decide on the position of the tragal pointer.

Mimetic muscles cause movement of the facial skin to reflect emotions. The risorius muscle does not arise from bone but originates from the connective tissue overlying the parotid gland. The muscle runs horizontally across the face to insert into the skin at the corner of the mouth. It pulls the corner of the mouth laterally, as in grinning. The facial artery runs superficially above the SMAS layer at the buccal (on the buccinator muscle) and nasolabial (on the orbicularis oris muscle) region. 2/10/2015 1:39:39 PM 22 II Upper Facial and Midfacial Region Frontalis m.

Fig. 2. The midfacial region. The buccinator muscle, upper orbicularis oris muscle, and levator anguli oris muscle are innervated by the zygomaticobuccal branches (see Fig. 5). The buccinator muscle and the levator anguli oris muscle are the deep-seated muscles and they are innervated from their superficial surface. The anterior margin of the parotid gland is a site which is suitable to identify the zygomatic and buccal branches for facial reanimation surgery. Several zygomatic and buccal branches can be exposed via the small skin incision made just below the zygomatic arch and anterior to the mandibular notch.
