The infratemporal fossa is one of the most important anatomical regions in the head for dental and maxillofacial surgeons as it contains the teeth’s major nerves and vessels; is the site of the temporomandibular joint and associated muscles that move the jaw; is a site often involved in facial fractures; is the route to the lateral skull base and middle cranial fossa; and can be the site of benign and malignant tumors. Surgical Anatomy of the Infratemporal Fossa integrates the basic clinical and surgical anatomy of the regions. It contains comprehensive clinical coverage of the infratemporal fossa with chapters relating to anatomy, local anesthesia, spread of infection, trauma, tumors, surgical access and pain. The contributors are internationally recognized experts in their fields and the detailed text is accompanied by high quality illustrations (the majority in color). Dentistry specialists, head and neck surgeons and trainees in those fields will find this text indispensable.
