Abstract: ABSTRACT: Aim & Objective: To study the occurrence and morphometric analysis of foramen of civinini in south Indian dry skulls. Background: Sphenoid bone comprises of some rare ossified ligaments, which may encounter difficulty during surgical procedures.The complete ossification of the Pterygospinous ligaments form foramen civinini, through which the branches of mandibular nerve pass.The ossified Pterygospinous ligaments is a major cause of entrapment of lingual nerve or a branch of mandibular nerve and cause mandibular or trigeminal neuralgia. Reasons: Knowledge of civinini ligament and foramen of civinini are important for anatomists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, dental surgeons and anaesthetists especially while treating trigeminal neuralgia and also while performing surgical procedures on the pterygoid region.This study was conducted to identify the occurrence of Foramen of civini and its morphometric analysis in South Indian dry skulls for the knowledge of its surgical applications.
Keywords: Keywords: Sphenoid bones, Foramen of civinini, Pterygospinous ligaments, Mandibular nerve
