The pharyngo-tympano-stapedial variant of the middle meningeal artery. A case report


Baltsavias, G; Kumar, R; Valavanis, A (2012). The pharyngo-tympano-stapedial variant of the middle meningeal artery. A case report. Interventional Neuroradiology, 18(3):255-258.

Abstract

Atypical origin of the middle meningeal artery from the cervical internal carotid artery is a rare angiographic finding. We describe a case of the pharyngo-tympano-stapedial variant of the middle meningeal artery in a young patient. In this vascular variation the proximal segment of the middle meningeal artery, corresponding to an annexed inferior tympanic artery, originates from the cervical carotid artery. Then over the promontory it unites with the superior tympanic artery and continues with its intracranial course via the petrous branch.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
