The infratentorial compartment that contains the CEREBELLUM and BRAIN STEM. It is formed by the posterior third of the superior surface of the body of the sphenoid (SPHENOID BONE), by the occipital, the petrous, and mastoid portions of the TEMPORAL BONE, and the posterior inferior angle of the PARIETAL BONE.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.

In vivo and in vitro CT analysis of the occiput. (1/202)

Arguments concerning the best procedure for occipito-cervical fusion have rarely been based upon occipital bone thickness or only based on in vitro studies. To close this gap and to offer an outlook on preoperative evaluation of the patient, 28 patients were analysed in vivo by means of spiral CT. Ten macerated human skulls were measured by means of CT and directly. Measurements were taken according to a matrix of 66 points following a grid with 1 cm spacing based upon McRae's line. Maximum thickness in the patient group was met 4 cm above the reference plane in the median slice (11.87 mm; SD 3.41 mm) and 5 cm above it in the skull group (15.85 mm; SD 1.81 mm). Correlation between CT and direct measurements was good (91.79%). Intra-individual discrepancies from one side to the respective point on the other side are common (difference > 1 mm in 60%). Judging areas suitable for operative fixation using the 10% percentile value (6.68 mm for the maximum value of 11.87 mm) led to the conclusion that screws should only be inserted along the occipital crest in an area extending from 1.5 cm above the posterior margin of the foramen magnum to the external occipital protuberance (EOP). At the level of the EOP screws may also be inserted up to 1 cm lateral of the midline. A reduction of screw length to 7 mm (9 mm for the EOP) is proposed. Preoperative evaluation of the patient should be carried out by spiral CT with 1 mm slicing and sagittal reconstructions.  (+info)

Suboccipital approach to the distal vertebral artery. (2/202)

A technique to expose directly the pars atlantica or the vertebral artery through a posterior approach was studied. It is useful when dealing with occlusive, aneurysmal, or dissecting lesions that extend to the transverse process of C1 or beyond. This technique permits exposure of the entire pars atlantica or the vertebral artery, from its exit from the foramen transversarium of C1 to its penetration of the dura mater at the foramen magnum. The experience with this technique in three patients is described.  (+info)

Dandy-Walker syndrome associated with occipital meningocele and spinal lipoma--case report. (3/202)

A neonate presented with Dandy-Walker syndrome associated with occipital meningocele and spinal lipoma, manifesting as soft masses on the skull and lumbosacral regions. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a large posterior fossa cyst between the fourth ventricle and occipital meningocele, but the aqueduct was patent and there was no sign of hydrocephalus. A cyst-peritoneal shunt was emplaced at the age of 8 days followed by partial removal of the spinal lipoma and untethering of the cord at the 3 months. Follow-up examination of age 3 years found almost normal development, although the cyst still persisted.  (+info)

Stage-related surgery for cervical spine instability in rheumatoid arthritis. (4/202)

Thirty-six consecutive patients with cervical spine instability due to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were treated surgically according to a stage-related therapeutic concept. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical results of these procedures. The initial change in RA of the cervical spine is atlanto-axial instability (AAI) due to incompetence of the cranio-cervical junction ligaments, followed by development of a peridontoid mass of granulation tissue. This results in inflammatory involvement of, and excessive dynamic forces on, the lateral masses of C1 and C2, leading to irreducible atlanto-axial kyphosis (AAK). Finally, cranial settling (CS) accompanied by subaxial subluxation (SAS) occurs. According to these three separate pathological and radiological lesions, the patients were divided into three therapeutic groups. Group I comprised 14 patients with isolated anterior AAI, who were treated by posterior wire fusion. Group II comprised 15 patients with irreducible AAK, who were treated by transoral odontoid resection. The fixation was done using anterior plating according to Harms in combination with posterior wire fusion according to Brooks. Group III comprised seven patients with CS and additional SAS, who were treated with occipito-cervical fusion. Pre- and postoperatively, evaluation was performed using the parameters pain (visual analog scale), range of motion (ROM), subjective improvement and Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ). The neurologic deficit was defined according to the classification proposed by Ranawat. Radiographs including lateral flexion and extension views, and MRI scans were obtained. The average clinical and radiographic follow-up of all patients was 50.7 +/- 19.3 months (range 21-96 months). No perioperative fatality occurred. Postoperative pain was significantly relieved in all groups (P < 0.001). In group II a slight improvement in the HAQ was obtained. In groups I and II the ROM of all patients increased significantly (average gain of motion in group I: 11.3 degrees +/- 7. 8 degrees for rotation; 7.8 degrees +/- 5.6 degrees for bending; average gain of motion in group II: 21.5 degrees +/- 14.0 degrees for rotation; 17.2 degrees +/- 5.5 degrees for bending), while it decreased significantly in group III (10.7 degrees +/- 18.1 degrees for rotation; 6.7 degrees +/- 18.5 degrees for bending). Preoperatively 27 patients had a manifest neurologic deficit. At follow-up four patients remained unchanged, all others improved by at least one Ranawat class. All patients, except one, showed solid bony fusion. According to the significantly improved postoperative subjective self-assessment and the clinical and radiological parameters, transoral plate fixation combined with posterior wire fixation after transoral odontoid resection represents an effective reliable and safe procedure for the treatment of irreducible AAK in rheumatoid arthritis.  (+info)

Fetal acalvaria with amniotic band syndrome. (5/202)

A case of amniotic band syndrome (ABS) presenting with acalvaria is reported. ABS includes a spectrum of non-genetic anomalies, varying from simple digital band constriction to major craniofacial and visceral defects, and even fetal death. Acalvaria is a rare congenital malformation characterised by the absence of the dome-like superior portion of the cranium comprising the frontal, parietal, and occipital bones and dura mater, in the presence of a normal skull base and facial bones with complete cranial contents. No two cases are the same. Acrania or absence of the flat skull bones with disorganised cerebral hemispheres have been reported in the presence of amniotic bands. ABS is an aetiological factor in acalvaria. Appropriate counselling for affected families needs to be given after prenatal diagnosis.  (+info)

Fracture of the occipital condyle: the forgotten part of the neck. (6/202)

A case of occipital condylar fracture in a multiply injured and unconscious motorcyclist is reported. This injury was clinically unsuspected but found on the lowest cuts of head computed tomography. It is shown that this site is often inadequately imaged when scanning the head and neck in victims of trauma. The Anderson and Montesano classification of occipital condylar fracture is described. It is noted that types 1 and 2 are stable injuries but type 3 is potentially unstable. A retrospective analysis of 30 head computed tomography scans in trauma cases revealed that in only 16 were the occipital condyles adequately imaged. It is emphasised that vigilance is required to detect fractures of the occipital condyle and that it should be standard practice to include this area when performing computed tomography of the head in trauma victims.  (+info)

Location of the glenoid fossa after a period of unilateral masticatory function in young rabbits. (7/202)

Changes in glenoid fossa position and skull morphology after a period of unilateral masticatory function were studied. The right-side maxillary and mandibular molars in twenty-seven 10-day-old rabbits were ground down under general anaesthesia. The procedure was repeated twice a week, until the rabbits were 50 days old. Fourteen rabbits were then killed and 13 left to grow to age 100 days. Nine 50-day-old and sixteen 100-day-old rabbits with unmodified occlusions served as controls. Three-dimensional measurements were made using a machine-vision technique and a video-imaging camera. The glenoid fossa position become more anterior in both groups of animals subjected to molar grinding as compared with controls (P < 0.01 in the 50-day-old group and P < 0.05 in 100-day-old group). In the 100-day-old group the right-side fossa was also in a more inferior position (P < 0.01). The glenoid fossa was more anteriorly located on the right than on the left side of individual animals in the group in which the right-side molars had been ground down (P < 0.001).  (+info)

The prenatal cranial base complex and hand in Turner syndrome. (8/202)

From early childhood, Turner syndrome patients have a flattened cranial base, maxillary retrognathism, and short hands. There are, however, no studies that show when these genotype-determined abnormalities occur prenatally. The purpose of the present study was to measure craniofacial profile and hand radiographs of second trimester foetuses with Turner syndrome and compare the results with similar measurements from normal foetuses. The subjects consisted of 12 Turner syndrome foetuses, gestational age (GA) varying between 15 and 24 weeks, and crown-rump length (CRL) between 108 and 220 mm. The mid-sagittal block of each cranium was analysed as part of the requested brain analysis (pituitary gland analysis). This block and the right hand from seven foetuses were radiographed, and the skeletal maturity of the cranial base complex, i.e. the cranial base and the maxilla, was evaluated from the profile radiographs. Shape and size measurements in the cranial base were performed, and compared with normal values according to cranial maturity and to CRL. The cranial base angle in Turner syndrome was greater and the maxillary prognathism was reduced compared with the normal group. The dimensions in the cranial complex and in the hand showed that the bone lengths and distances in relation to CRL were generally smaller compared with normal foetuses. This investigation showed that the abnormal shape of the cranial base complex and the short hands in Turner syndrome are present prenatally.  (+info)

Enthesophytes are bony projections that arise from the sites of ligament, tendon or joint capsule attachment to a bone. They are seen rarely in radiographic findings in young adults, as these bony adaptations are assumed to develop slowly over time. However, in recent years, the presence of an enlarged external occipital protuberance (EEOP) has been observed frequently in radiographs of relatively young patients at the clinic of the lead author. Accordingly, the aim of this project was to assess the prevalence of an EEOP in a young adult population. Analysis involved a retrospective analysis of 218 lateral cervical radiographic studies of 18-30-year-old participants. Group A (n = 108; males = 45, females = 63) consisted of asymptomatic university students, while Group B (n = 110; males = 50, females = 60) were an age-matched mildly symptomatic, non-student population. The external occipital protuberance (EOP) size was defined as the distance from the most superior point of the EOP (origin) to a point on
Lower cranial nerve (IX-XII) palsy is a rare condition with numerous causes, usually non-traumatic. In the literature it has been described only a few times after trauma, mostly accompanied by a fracture of the occipital condyle. Although these types of fractures have rarely been reported one could suspect they have been under-diagnosed. During the past decade they have been seen more frequently, most probably due to increased use of CT- and MRI-scanning. The purpose of this review is to increase the awareness of complications following injuries in the craniocervical region. We based this article on a retrospective review of the medical record of a 24-year old woman admitted to our trauma center after being involved in a car accident and a review of the literature on occipital condyle fractures associated with lower cranial nerve palsy. The multitraumatized patient had suffered a dislocated occipital condyle fracture. Months later she was diagnosed with palsy to cranial nerve IX-XII. Literature review
The occipital emissary foramen or vena obelionica is occasionally present as a solitary foramen in the squamous part of occipital bone at external occipital protuberance. It transmits occipital emissary vein which connects occipital sinus with the sub occipital venous plexus. Variations occur with regard to number and location. The aim of the present study was to ascertain the aforesaid parameters in North Indian population and compare it with the data available in the literature. One hundred and sixteen dry adult human skulls and occipital bones with intact foramen magnum of both sexes with unknown age group were obtained from in the neuroanatomy section of the of anatomy department, LLRM Medical College Meerut, and surrounding medical colleges Uttar Pradesh, India. The occipital emissary foramen was present in 29/116 (25%) skulls. In (7.7%) skulls the foramina was located on EOC. In (6 %) it was located on the right side, (10.3%) on left side and in (8.6%) it was median in position. Bilateral ...
Capitula of the occipital bone On the outer surface, at the sides of the foramen carved out for the dorsal medulla, the occipital bone puts out two capitula (l, l in figures 4 and 5) [condyli occipitales] which are articulated to the first cervical vertebra [atlas], by means of which the head is tilted and extended by its own motion. In young children, these capitula [condyli] are epiphyses; in old persons they are hidden, like the other epiphyses. Also in young children, the bone is constructed of three parts [partes laterales, pars basilaris] separated by three lines [sutura] filled with cartilage [synchondroses]. One of these runs from the end of the sagittal suture to the posterior part of the foramen [foramen magnum] of the dorsal medulla; the other two [fonticuli mastoidei] extend transversely from the sides of the foramen to the extensions of the lambdoid suture. Consequently, the very young have two bones [partes laterales] in the occiput, and one [pars basilaris] attached to the ...
The occipital condyles are undersurface protuberances of the occipital bone in vertebrates, which function in articulation with the superior facets of the atlas vertebra. The condyles are oval or reniform (kidney-shaped) in shape, and their anterior extremities, directed forward and medialward, are closer together than their posterior, and encroach on the basilar portion of the bone; the posterior extremities extend back to the level of the middle of the foramen magnum. The articular surfaces of the condyles are convex from before backward and from side to side, and look downward and lateralward. To their margins are attached the capsules of the atlanto-occipital joints, and on the medial side of each is a rough impression or tubercle for the alar ligament. At the base of either condyle the bone is tunnelled by a short canal, the hypoglossal canal. Position of occipital condyles (shown in red) Skull and cervical vertebra. Occipital condyles (red) articulate with the superior facets of the atlas. ...
It is the most posterior of the cranial bones forming the posterior wall and base of the skull. It is consist of two parts; squamous part and basilar part. In between these part is the foramen magnum of the occipital bone through which passes the spinal cord. The squamous part lies posterior to the foramen magnum and the basilar part lies anterior to the foramen magnum. On the inferior surface of the basilar part just anterior to the foramen magnum lie two projections called as occipital condyles which project inferiorly and posteriorly. The occipital condyle make joint with the superior articular facets of the 1st cervical vertebrae called as atlanto−occipital joint. This joint transmits the weight of skull bones to the vertebral column and helps in making movements like when we say Yes (flexion anteriorly and posteriorly). On the posterior external part of the squamous part is the external occipital protuberance and beneath it lies two curve lines called as superior nuchal line and inferior ...

The occipital bone has an interesting developmental history. Phylogenetically, the base of the bone is the cranial most serial homologue of the vertebral series of bones. The vertebral-like endochondral portion is joined by a large plate-like lamina that develops intramembranously. This bone can be somewhat plastic in its development, but a general plan is recognized as follows. The flat upper squamous portion of the bone superior to the highest nuchal line ossifies intramembranously in two lateral centers that appear during the second embryonic month. These centers will eventually join, but sometimes remain separate from the rest of the occipital elements becoming the so called interparietal bone. It is common for additional centers to appear in the membrane associated with the squama. These centers sometimes remain unfused to the rest of the squama becoming the sutural bones common to the occipitoparietal suture. The rest of the occipital bone, everything below the highest nuchal line, is ...

The superior or upper (or descending) fibers of the trapezius originate from the spinous process of C7, the external occipital protuberance, the medial third of the superior nuchal line of the occipital bone (both in the back of the head), and the ligamentum nuchae. From this origin they proceed downward and laterally to be inserted into the posterior border of the lateral third of the clavicle. The middle fibers, or transverse of the trapezius arise from the spinous process of the seventh cervical (both in the back of the neck), and the spinous processes of the first, second, and third thoracic vertebrae. They are inserted into the medial margin of the acromion, and into the superior lip of the posterior border of the spine of the scapula. The inferior or lower (or ascending) fibers of the trapezius arise from the spinous processes of the remaining thoracic vertebrae (T4-T12).

This is the cranial continuation of the interspinous and supraspinous ligaments, albeit, it takes on a much different morphology than its caudal counterparts. It forms a two-layered fibroelastic septum that separates the dorsal muscles of the neck and spans from the spine of the seventh cervical vertebra to the external occipital protuberance. The deep fibers of the ligament attach to the external occipital crest, the posterior tubercle of the atlas, and to the medial surface of the bifid processes of the other cervical vertebrae ...
The trapezius muscle is a large, triangular, superficial muscle. It attaches proximally in the medial third of the superior nuchal line, external occipital protuberance, nuchal ligament, and spinous processes of the C7-T12 vertebrae. Distal attachment of the trapezius occurs at the lateral third of the clavicle and acromion and spine of the scapula. The action of the muscle includes neck extension and stabilization of the scapula and support for the arm. The muscle fibers proximal to the inflection point of the neck (ie, necklace line) run vertically and are involved with neck extension. According to the PREEMPT injection paradigm, one injection of 5 units of onabotulinumtoxinA to each of three sites on either side of the trapezius, for a total of 30 units divided across six sites, is given. The first injection site can be identified by visually dividing the upper portion of the trapezius muscle in half, from the inflection point of the neck (ie the necklace line) to the acromion ...
Using sophisticated anatomical labeling and single-unit recording techniques, we show (1) that axons of sensory neurons in C2 and C3 DRGs innervate the dura overlying the cerebellum and the posterior fossa; (2) that they enter the cranium through bony canals in the occipital bone (occipital-periotic, emissary, hypoglossal), and large foramens (magnum, jugular); (3) that they reach the occipital bone after traversing the different layers of the suboccipital muscles; (4) that nearly 50% of them originate in neurons that contain CGRP, TRPV1, but not IB4; (5) that dorsal horn neurons that receive nociceptive information from the posterior/occipital dura are located in C2-C4 spinal cord segments and that their cutaneous and muscle RFs are centered around the ears, occipital and upper neck skin, and superficial and deep neck muscles, and (6) that administration of inflammatory soup to their intracranial dural RF, sensitizes a subpopulation of them to the extent that they become hyper-responsive to ...
Discussion. The chronic intradiploic hematoma lesion was first described by Chorbski and Davis in 19341 and was named by Sato et al.2 To date, only 12 cases of chronic intradiploic hematoma have been reported in the literature.1-11 Other names found in the literature for intradiploic hematoma include non-neoplastic cyst of diploe, traumatic cyst, and giant cell repetitive granuloma.4,6,9,10,12. The exact pathogenesis of the intradiploic hematoma is not clear. However, chronic intradiploic hematomas associated with anticoagulant use, birth trauma, and shunt surgery have been reported. Moreover, acute hematomas in the various layers of the scalp and the skull usually resolve spontaneously.1 However, trauma can initiate bleeding in the diploic space. If the resulting diploic hematoma is not absorbed, the surrounding connective tissue usually encapsulates the hematoma and creates a cyst.1 The natural history of this connective tissue can show various stages of differentiation, i.e., fibrous tissue, ...

Greater occipital neuralgia is caused by compression of the greater occipital nerve, usually by a tight upper trapezius or semispinalis capitis muscle.
The shape and size of this cavity also depend on variables other than kinetic energy, such as yaw-the wobbling motion of a bullet-and the effect of secondary missiles that form when the bullets kinetic energy is transferred to bone, which fragments and itself becomes projectiles. When the bullet enters tissue, it chisels out a cavity much larger than its own diameter. A ball cannot produce yaw because it has no longitudinal axis to wobble on, and no secondary missiles were formed in Lincolns injury because, other than entering the occipital bone, the ball encountered only soft brain matter. The occipital bone that was hit was driven like a plug and found in the autopsy about two and a half inches down the missile track. The hole made in the bone, wrote a witness to the autopsy, was as cleanly cut as if done with a punch. The absence of yaw and secondary missiles combined with the balls low velocity should have rendered the effect of cavitation in Lincolns wound minimal, and indeed, the ...

According to the PREEMPT injection paradigm, 5 units of onabotulinumtoxinA is to be administered to two sites on each side for a total dose of 20 units across four sites in the cervical paraspinal muscle group near the midline. The first injection site is approximately 1 cm left of the midline of the cervical spine and approximately 3 cm (2 fingerbreadths) inferior to the occipital protuberance. The second site is measured approximately 1 fingerbreadth diagonally up at a 45° angle from the first injection. The injections should be administered in the most superficial aspect of the muscle, angling the needle 45° and superiorly. To aid in the placement of the injections, the patient should be positioned upright with the head in a neutral position. If the neck is flexed too far forward, injections may be too deep. Injections that are too low or too deep in this muscle group can lead to muscle weakness and neck pain. Injectors should use a suboccipital approach to ensure that the injection sites ...
Behind either condyle of the lateral parts of occipital bone is a depression, the condyloid fossa (or condylar fossa), which receives the posterior margin of the superior facet of the atlas when the head is bent backward; the floor of this fossa is sometimes perforated by the condyloid canal, through which an emissary vein passes from the transverse sinus. ...

After the area is treated, the next step is to re-listen to the body. Very often the listening takes you to the left occipitomastoid suture - the suture between the temporal and occipital bones. Now if we look at our anatomy, we see that the vagus nerve exits in the jugular foramen between these two bones. We may even feel a line of tension between the occipitomastoid suture and the upper stomach. This would make sense anatomically because of the pathway of the esophagus and vagus nerve as they both travel through the thorax. Thus, when we line up the tension, or engage the two structures between our hands so that we can feel a specific tension, we may release these structures and thus help the child with their symptom of reflux. ...

This week we are featuring C1. The atlas is one of the two upper cervical vertebrae, also known as C1, which is the topmost vertebra of the spinal column. It is the vertebra that is in contact with the occipital bone, a flat bone located at the back portion of the head. This first cervical bone is named from the mythical Greek god who carried the world on his shoulders, as its function is to support the globe of the head. Together with the second vertebra, the axis, it is responsible for the wide range of motion of the head. The atlas does not look like a typical vertebra, with its ring-like structure and the absence of a body, which is actually fused to the axis. ...

Posterior occipitocervical fixation and fusion are often required to address occipitocervical instability. Safe, stable internal fixation with screws is vital for the success of such surgery. Thus, poor selection of an internal fixation technique may cause fixation and fusion failure, possibly leading to neurovascular injury. Hence, in certain cases, such as in patients with severe instability of an occipitocervical deformity or osteoporosis, we hypothesized that having a third anchor point (a screw in C2) could enhance the stability of the occipitocervical fixation. A 31-year-old man with occipitocervical deformity and spinal cord edema underwent a traditional occipitocervical fixation procedure but with the addition of a spinous process screw in C2 as a third anchor point. The procedure included posterior internal fixation and fusion. The occipitocervical fixation was completed by inserting occipital screws, bilateral C2 pedicle screws, C3 lateral mass screws, and a spinous process screw in C2 as a
The sphenoid bone has a special place within the head, situated between the brain and the face. Its major joint, the one with the occipital bone, is actually more like the ones between the vertebrae in the spine. Thus it is more flexible than are most other joints between cranial bones. In order to monitor any displacements of the sphenoid bone, check it for hinge, slide and twist. The three small pictures indicate, what is meant with these words. Occipital bone is presented in grey and the sphenoid bone in white.. Hinge: The sphenoid and occipital bones only touch at one edge of the square surface of the joint.. Slide: The surfaces of the two bones keep contact, but are sliding out of centre. Twist: The surfaces keep contact, but the bones are twisted.. ...
INTRODUCTION The increased incidence and success of strip craniectomy with postoperative helmet therapy in the treatment of sagittal craniosynostosis has been documented by multiple centers throughout the country and world. The authors report a child with a postoperative implantation intradiploic epidermoid cyst following a strip craniectomy, a complication, that to our knowledge, has not been reported. METHODS This clinical report involves a 3-year-old boy with a scaphocephalic appearance who was transferred to our center following an interstate adoption. He underwent a strip craniectomy with helmet therapy in infancy. On presentation to our facility the chief complaint was a scaphocephalic appearance. Preop computed tomography scans showed areas of bone gaps along the sagittal suture. RESULTS The child was brought to the operating room for a mid-vault expansion. At surgery, a large intradiploic epidermoid cyst was noted on the posterior aspect of the area of the sagittal suture, immediately
A lot of people that come in here have occipital neuralgia and some of you might be suffering from it at home, so Im going to explain what that means. When I say occipital, that means just the bottom of the skull here, the occiput. This is the occipital region. Neuralgia, the word, means nerve pain. So, its occipital nerve pain. So, all these nerves in the back of your head, they can become compressed. Whether its from tight muscles back there, or from a bone out of place in your neck, that can cause sharp, sharp pains in the back of your head. They use a fancy word to describe occipital neuralgia but its nothing really too fancy if you come to think of it when it is boiled down. If youre suffering from that, I would definitely come out here and get checked out because theres a lot of stuff we could do to help relieve that pain. Whether its loosening up some of those muscles or adjusting the neck for proper motion.. So, there you are, just a little quick info on Occipital Neuralgia. ...

Occipital neuralgia is a distinct type of headache characterized by piercing, throbbing, or electric-shock-like chronic pain in the upper neck, back of the head, and behind the ears, usually on one side of the head. Typically, the pain of occipital neuralgia begins in the neck and then spreads upwards. Some individuals will also experience pain in the scalp, forehead, and behind the eyes. Their scalp may also be tender to the touch, and their eyes especially sensitive to light. The location of pain is related to the areas supplied by the greater and lesser occipital nerves, which run from the area where the spinal column meets the neck, up to the scalp at the back of the head. The pain is caused by irritation or injury to the nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles, compression of the nerve as it leaves the spine due to osteoarthritis, or tumors or other types of lesions in the neck.
Gronk! KrOB has secluded himself in his atelier to create this absolutely scientific, unique presentation. Youll see various leathery cowboys on horseback use their lariats to lasso and capture (momentarily) a large carnivorous dinosaur, possibly a living specimen of Giganotosaurus carolinii, one of the largest known theropod dinosaurs. Its remains include a well-preserved braincase that displays a suite of derived characters unique to the animal, and others that help establish its relationships amongst the Theropoda. These, by the way, include the development of a broad frontoparietal skull table that forms a shelf overhanging the supratemporal fenestra, the reorientation of the metotic fissure and fenestra ovalis onto the occiput, the ventral extension of the supraoccipital on either side of the foramen magnum, a broad but low occipital condyle, and pneumatization of the basioccipital.

How many bones is the human skull made of? The skull or cranium is composed of eight cranial bones and fourteen facial bones, which are all fused together by sutures. The skull cranial bones protect the brain and they are: one frontal, two parietal, two sphenoid, two temporal, and one occipital bones. Dome of the skull is known as the skullcap and the lower part is called the base. The largest of the facial bones are the upper and lower jaws (maxilla and mandible). At the center of the base of the skull there is hole called foramen magnum, through which the spinal cord runs. The cranium turns freely on top of the vertebral column, which is made up of separate bones called vertebra. ...
The Edinburgh Stereoscopic Atlas of Anatomy. Section-II-No.11. Head and Neck. Spinal Canal--No. 2. The posterior part of the skull has been removed and also the dura mater over the cerebellum and the upper part of the spinal cord. Dura mater. The cranial dura mater is adherent to the crainial wall, and serves as a periosteum to the inner surface of the cranial bones. It contains several large venous channels, many of which meet with one another at the internal occipital protuberance. Thus, at this place, the superior longitudinal sinus, which lie in the middle line and runs from in front to the back, meets the straight sinus, the orifice of which is seen, and the occipital sinus. The confluence of these channels constitutes the torcular Hierophili, and from it the lateral sinuses pass outwards on either side, lying between the cerebrum and the cerebellum. The lumen of the sinuses is rather triangular in shape. Arachnoid. This is a delicate non-vascular membrane which invests the brain and cord. ...

The unilateral transection of the cerebellar peduncles was performed on 29 rats (Table 1). In these animals the atlanto-occipital membrane was exposed and excised, and the cerebellar peduncles of one side was cut by inserting a microknife into the fourth ventricle underneath the cerebellum. These animals belong to an experimental set described in a previous study to which it can be referred for details about the surgical procedures and the evaluation of lesion extent (Buffo et al., 1998).. The Purkinje cell axonal transport was blocked in vivo by injecting a colchicine solution into the cerebellar parenchyma of uninjured rats. These animals were placed on a stereotaxic frame, the occipital bone was exposed, and a hole was drilled in the superior aspect to expose the cerebellar vermis. A total of 4 μg of either colchicine (n = 17, Table 1) or β-lumicolchicine, as a control (n = 4, Table 1), diluted in 1 μl of saline solution was pressure-injected 1 mm deep within the cerebellar parenchyma ...
Occipital neuralgia is a miserable nagging soreness, pain, and headache in the back of the head, often described as a base of skull headache. I tell patients to think of occipital neuralgia as sciatica of the head. This back of head pain is typically felt in the suboccipital region (where the base of the skull meets the top of the neck) and occipital region (back of head) and radiates variably into the back and top of the head (by the greater occipital nerve) and there is often pain behind the ear on the effected side as well (by the lesser occipital nerve). This headache in the base of the skull can less commonly even radiate to the frontal areas (by the trigeminocervical circuitry in the upper cervical spinal cord and brainstem). It can be one sided or both sides. The pain is often described as an intense stabbing, sharp, shooting, shocking, or burning pain. It often occurs in attacks of pain which may last seconds to minutes, but can also be a continuous unrelenting pain. Sometimes it may ...

There are four major sutures and one of them is the coronal suture. These sutures are what connect the brains frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital bones. Though it looks like the brain is one large bone, there are actually a number of major bones in the brain that are connected together.

The pterygoclival ligament was identified bilaterally during drilling of the sphenoid floor in all specimens. The ligament started a few millimeters posterior to the posterior end of the vomer alae and invariably extended posterolaterally and superiorly to blend into the fibrous tissue around the lacerum ICA. The mean length of the ligament was 10.5 ± 1.7 mm. The mean distance between the anterior end of the ligament and midline was 5.2 ± 1.2 mm. The mean distance between the posterior end of the ligament and midline was 12.3 ± 1.4 mm. The bony pterygoclival groove was identified at the confluence of the vomer, pterygoid process of the sphenoid, and basilar part of the occipital bone, running from posterolateral to anteromedial. The mean length of the groove was 7.7 ± 1.8 mm. Its posterolateral end faced the anteromedial aspect of the foramen lacerum medial to the posterior end of the vidian canal.

She was telling me about it because she thought it might be something I should check into. I told her that I would try to check but that I didnt have ON - I have migraines that have to do with the vessels in my head - no the nerves.

Occipital neuralgia refers to sharp, shooting pain arising at back of the head or upper neck, and spreading either to the top of the skull, or to the temple region. This is frequently associated with a dull or throbbing pain behind the eye. It may occur on both sides. This pain is often reproduced by applying mild pressure or tapping over the greater or lesser occipital nerves at the back of the skull. Some patients may have pins and needles or numbness over the scalp ...

The LON may be easily vulnerable because of its superficial course.. The LON runs vertically upward along the posterior margin of the SCM as a single trunk after it pierced the deep cervical fascia23). Tahir et al.21) reported the use of a horseshoe-shaped headrest during beach-chair surgery caused a permanent injury to the LON, and Park and Kim18) reported three patients with neuropraxia of LON after shoulder arthroscopy. They believed the etiology of injury to LON was an entrapment effect from the headrest compression and recommended that the auricle be protected with cotton or gauze during surgery in the beach-chair position. Though irrelevant to compression injury in this study, LON exposed superficially may also easily be affected from indirect irritations, such as postoperative scar tissue or suture material. However, on cadaveric study, GON was found to emerge below to average 30 mm from the occipital protuberance17).. Group A has less complications related neuropathy because of its ...
Various treatments and procedures have been proposed for treatment of occipital neuralgia, however, the published literature addressing these treatments consists of small, nonrandomized studies, case reports and case series, as well as retrospective studies and reviews. Gille and colleagues (2004) examined surgical treatment of greater occipital neuralgia by neurolysis of the greater occipital nerve and sectioning of the inferior oblique muscle in a case series study of 10 individuals. Of this group, 3 individuals had anatomic anomalies. The mean follow-up of the series was 37 months. The results of the treatment were assessed according to three criteria: (1) degree of pain on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) before surgery, at 3 months, and at last follow-up; (2) consumption of analgesics before surgery and at follow-up; and (3) the degree of satisfaction at follow-up. The mean VAS score was 80/100 before surgery and 20/100 at last follow-up. Consumption of analgesics decreased in all individuals. ...

To examine the impact of occiput posterior position, compared to occiput anterior position, on neonatal outcomes in a setting where delayed pushing is practiced. The specific aim was to estimate the risk of acidaemia. Cohort study from a university hospital in Sweden between 2004 and 2012. Information was collected from a local database of 35,546 births. Umbilical artery sampling was routine. Outcomes were: umbilical artery pH | 7.00 and |7.10 and short-term neonatal morbidity. The association between occiput posterior position and neonatal outcomes was examined using logistic regression analysis, presented as adjusted odds ratio (AOR) with 95% confidence interval (CI). Of 27,648 attempted vaginal births, 1292 (4.7%) had occiput posterior position. Compared with occiput anterior, there was no difference in pH | 7.00 (0.4% vs. 0.5%) but a higher rate of pH | 7.10 in occiput posterior births (3.8 vs. 5.5%). Logistic regression analysis showed no increased risk of pH | 7.10 (AOR 1.28 95% CI 0.93-1.74) when
Maddin et al. present a hypothesis based on the development of skull roof bones in mice and chickens. In mice (and axolotls) the suture between the frontal and parietal corresponds to the boundary between the neural crest and mesoderm in the embryo. In chickens, the latter embryonic boundary is within the frontal itself. Thus the authors suggest the avian frontal is actually a fused frontal and parietal, while the avian parietal is actually a postparietal. They say that hypothesis is also supported phylogenetically where data from the fossil record reveal separate frontal, parietal, and postparietal bones are present in all stem lineages of extant taxa, including that of birds (e.g., the stem archosaur Euparkeria). The problem I see is that the postparietal in basal archosauriforms is a tiny wedge between the parietals and supraoccipital, while the parietals have the same topological relationships and morphology in these basal archosauriforms that they do in basal dinosaurs.
