Effects of Temporal Muscle Suspension of Temporal Hollowing
“The Effect of Temporal Muscle Suspension of Temporal Hollowing”
The primary objective is to identify which patients undergoing a traditional pterional approach with 2 different surgical techniques for TMS (Temporal Muscle Suspension) will develop TH (Temporal Hollowing. Pre and post-operative CT scans will be reviewed and analysis with previously proven metrics will be performed.
