Anatomic study of the tendinous insertion lamina of the temporalis muscle

, : Anatomic study of the tendinous insertion lamina of the temporalis muscle. Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy 26(4): 281-284

Lengthening temporalis myoplasty is indicated in long-standing and congenital facial paralysis. Its principle is the transfer of the coronoid tendinous insertions onto the lip and the nasolabial fold. Knowledge of the anatomy of this strong and wide tendon is necessary for successful use of its anatomic advantages. A study on 10 cadavers (20 temporalis muscles) confirmed the surgical anatomy found during lengthening temporalis myoplasty procedures: the strong tendon, when freed from the coronoid process, is 4-6 cm wide.
