Infraorbital nerve swelling associated with autoimmune pancreatitis.
11] compared the postoperative analgesic effect of bilateral infraorbital nerve block with that of peri-incisional infiltration in infant cleft lip surgery and demonstrated the superiority of nerve blocks.
Therapeutic infraorbital nerve blocks are used in intractable and pharmacologically unresponsive trigeminal neuralgia.
When mandibular fracture was double and post- traumatic edema of soft tissues was present, the pain threshold of infraorbital nerve was measured in the side where post-traumatic outcomes at infraorbital zone were minimal and there were any subcutaneous bruising and scrapes.
The infraorbital nerve (V1) is the primary sensory innervation of the lower lid with additional contributions from the zygomaticofacial nerve (V2).
Infraorbital nerve blocking through infraorbital canal is used to anaesthetize the lower eyelid,upper lip, lateral nose, upper teeth and related gingivae.
The cheek flap was elevated directly over the anterior bony wall of the maxilla, carefully preserving the infraorbital nerve as it exited from the infraorbital foramen.
Most patients experience various degrees of sensory impairment of the face ipsilateral to the maxillotomy, resulting predominantly from manipulation of the infraorbital nerve and occasionally the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve within the infratemporal fossa.
The skin of the lateral nasal wall is innervated by the external nasal branch of the infraorbital nerve, which exits its foramen just medial to the midpupillary line.
Signs of orbital trapdoor fractures include variable ecchymosis and oedema, infraorbital nerve anaesthesia if the fracture line involves the infraorbital canal, enophthalmous if the fracture is severe, al-though this usually appears after few days of the injury as the oedema subsides.
Progressive infraorbital nerve hypesthesia as a primary indication for blowout fracture repair.
6 ml of anaesthesia, as described in the technique (Jorgensen & Hayden; Tima), exceeds the volumetric capacity of the fossa in the dry skull, without considering that it is occupied by neurovascular elements and adipose tissue, which constitute the content of this cavity (Rouviere & Delmas, 1999; Figun & Garino, 2001; Latarjet & Ruiz-Liard, 2004), the anaesthesia could spread through communications of the PPF to other cavities, explaining some complications described in the technique such as intravascular injection, infraorbital nerve damage, and anesthesia, or damage of the orbital nerves (Douglas & Wormald; Methathrathip et al.
