4) is a branch of the ophthalmic artery, which is itself a branch of the internal carotid artery. • The middle meningeal artery is a branch of the maxillary artery that supplies the middle cranial fossa and lateral wall of the neurocranium; the anterior branch of the middle meningeal artery runs deep to the pterion (the meeting point of the parietal, temporal, sphenoid, and frontal bones), which is the thinnest part of the skull and the area most susceptible to trauma. • The posterior meningeal arteries are derived from the occipital, ascending pharyngeal, and vertebral arteries.

The left frontal sinus is absent in this patient. 18 Face—MRI (coronal view). Observe the relationship between the eye, nasal region, and tongue. 19 Face—MRI (sagittal view). The scalp appears as a thickened, light-colored layer surrounding the dark-appearing bones. Observe the location of the lips with respect to the nasal and oral regions. 43 5 Parotid, Temporal, and Pterygopalatine Region The temporal and infratemporal fossae are two anatomical areas on the lateral surface of the skull. The temporal fossa is the site of origin of the temporalis muscle, and the infratemporal fossa is the site of origin of the medial and lateral pterygoid muscles.

Lymph from the lower part of the face and mandible also flows toward the submandibular nodes and submental nodes (see Fig. 2), from where it usually drains to the deep cervical nodes on the carotid sheath in the neck (see Chapter 12). Clinical Correlations SCALP LACERATION Because the scalp has five layers, lacerations can vary in depth (Fig. 6). The arteries of the scalp in layer 2 (the connective tissue layer) are adherent to the surrounding tissues. When a scalp artery is lacerated, the cut end of the artery cannot retract into the scalp because of its strong attachment to the surrounding connective tissue, thereby resulting in continuous bleeding until direct pressure is applied to the wound.
