• branch
  • All of the nerves seen in the dentaform above are branches of the maxillary branch of the trigeminal nerve which originates at the semilunar ganglion. (doctorspiller.com)
  • It is a branch of the maxillary nerve which is the second division of the trigeminal nerve. (doctorspiller.com)
  • The small nerves breaking off the maxillary branch just before the infraorbital branch, and going to the tips of the roots of the teeth, are collectively called the superior dental plexus . (doctorspiller.com)
  • After passing through the obturator foramen, the obturator nerve enters medial aspect of the thigh, and divides into an anterior branch between the adductor longus and brevis muscles and a posterior branch between the adductor brevis and magnus muscles. (usra.ca)
  • The anterior branch of the obturator nerve (usually a hyperechoic structure) can be found between the adductor longus (more superficial) and brevis muscles. (usra.ca)
  • Figure B. Needle (arrow) approaching the anterior branch of the obturator nerve (arrowhead). (usra.ca)
  • anterior
  • Identify the anterior and posterior branches of the obturator nerve lying in the fascial plane between the adductor longus and brevis muscles and the adductor brevis and magnus muscles respectively. (usra.ca)
  • Confirm the identity of the branches of the obturator nerve by electrical stimulation and differentiate between the anterior and posterior divisions. (usra.ca)
  • muscle
  • The success of the block is defined as the presence of motor block in two muscle groups and the absence of thermal and pain sensations in the necessary dermatomes within 30 minutes of the injection. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The obturator nerve (L2-4) descends towards the pelvis from the medial border of the psoas major muscle. (usra.ca)
  • Low current electrical stimulation of the obturator nerve will elicit adductor muscle contraction and aid nerve localization. (usra.ca)
