Topographic Localization of Nerve to Masseter Muscle to determine the Primary Nerve- Muscle Relation, an Aid to Facial Sculpting Techniques

SUMMARY Background. The masseteric nerve is a suitable target as a motor nerve donor for facial reanimation surgeries and botulinum toxin injection in case of hypertrophy of masseter muscle. In this context determining the topographical location of the motor point (MP) of masseter muscle with reference to standard anatomical landmarks becomes significant. Methods. Eleven formalin-fixed … Continued
