To Study the Morphology of Pterion in Dry Human Skull in Vidarbha Region

Dr. Charulata Satpute [6] | Dr. Abhilasha Wahane [6]


Abstract: Eighty five (85) dry skulls were studied to find out the variations of Pterion. Sphenoparietal variety of Pterion was seen predominantly along with frontotemporal and stellate varieties. The importance of the pterion is its relation to the middle meningeal artery, Broca's motor speech area on the left side, and surgical interventions relating to pathologies of the sphenoid ridge and optic canal. The present study was done on 85 dry human skulls available in anatomy department and bone sets available with students. The sutural pattern of pterion on right and left side of each skull bone was noted based on description by Murphy (sphenoparietal, frontotemporal, stellate and epipteric types).
