34 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
angular artery
terminal of facial artery
superficial temporal artery
smaller terminal branch of external carotid artery
emerges bt TMJ and ear, enters temporal fossa
divide into frontal and parietal branches in scalp
supratrochlear vein
begins in forehead
joins supraorbital vein to form angular vein which becomes facial vein
facial vein
receives external nasal veins and inferior palpebral veins from nose and lower eyelid
deep facial vein
pterygoid venous plexus of infratemporal fossa
facial vein
at medial angle of eye, this vein communicates with the superior opthalmic veing which drains into the cavernous sinus
superficial temporal vein
widespread network of veins in scalp and along the zygomatic arch.
facial vein drains scalp and forhead and receives tributaries from veins of the temple and face.
near auricle, this enters parotid gland
what two arteries are from internal carotid artery?
supratrochlear artery and supraorbital artery
posterior auricular vein is from which branch? external or internal jugular vein?
external jugular vein
superfical lymphatic vessels accompany veins and deep lymphatics accompany arteries
lymphatic vessels of face accompnay other facial vessels
deep cervical group of lymph nodes
all lymph from head and neck eventually drains into this, a chain of nodes surrounding the IJV in the neck
parotid duct
pierces buccinator and enters oral cavity through a small orifice opposite the 2nd maxillary molar tooth
what strucutres are in parotid gland?
facial nerve and its branches; retromandibular vein;
external carotid artery;
parotid lymph nodes
great auricular nerve
(c2 and c3) a branch of the cervical plexus, innervates the parotid sheath
cervical plexus
formed by loops joining the ventral primary rami of first four cervical nerves and receiving gray communicating rami from the superior cervical sympathetic ganglion
parasympathetic fibers of glossopharyngeal nerve (CN IX)
stimulation of these fibers produces a thin, watery saliva:
supplies secretory fibers to parotid gland, which are conveyed by the auriculotemporal nerve from the otic ganglion
innervation of scalp
anterior to auricles, trigeminal nerve
posterior to auricles, spinal cutaneous nerves (c2 and c3)
opthalmic division of trigeminal nerve V1
1) frontal n- supraorbital and supratrochlear n
2) lacrimal n
3) nasocillary- infratrochlear, external nasal branch of anterior ethmoidal n, short long ciliary nerves
maxillary division of trigeminal nerve V2
infraorbital n.
zygomaticofacial n.
zygomaticotemporal n.
mandibular division of trigeminal nerve V3
mental n
buccal n
auriculotemporal n.
branches from cervical plexus (ventral)
lesser occipital n c2 c3
great auricular n c2c3
transverse cervical n c2c3
supraclavicular n c3c4
dorsal rami of cervical spinal nerves
innervate back of head, posterior scalp
greater occipital n c2
3rd occipital n c3
vasculature of scalp
blood vessels run between connective tissues and aponeurosis
superficial ring (pericervical collar) of lymph nodes
submental, submandibular, parotid, mastoid, retroauricular, and occipital lymph nodes located at jxn of head and neck
these drain into deep cervical lymph nodes along IJV
incisive fossa
through which the nasopalatine nerves pass from the nose thru a variable number of incisive canals and foramina
what passes thru foramen magnum
accessory nerve CN XI
medulla oblongata
vertebral arteries
what passes thru jugular foramen?
internal jugular vein
CN 9-11 (spinal roots of accessory in foramen magnum)
what passes thru carotid canal?
internal carotid artery
internal carotid nerve plexus
what passes thru stylomastoid foramen?
facial nerve CNVII
stylomastoid artery
median nasal prominence
ant alveolar process of maxillae,
primary palate
maxillary prominences
lateral parts of upper lip,
secondary palate,
posterior alveolar processes
forehead, dorsum and apex of nose
lateral nasal processes
sides of nose, alae of nose
mandibular promincence
lower jaw, lower lip, lower part of face
