  • Locating the foramen ovale by using molar and inter-eminence planes: a guide for percutaneous trigeminal neuralgia procedures. [Journal Article]
  • JNJ Neurosurg 2019 Feb 15; :1-7
  • Zdilla MJ, Ritz BK, Nestor NS
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study provide a novel means of identifying the location of the foramen ovale. Unlike the soft-tissue landmarks used in the many variations of the route of Härtel, the bony landmarks identified in this study can be palpated, marked on the face, appreciated fluoroscopically, and do not require any measurement from soft-tissue structures. Utilizing the molar and inter-eminence planes as cannulation guides will improve the approach to the foramen ovale and decrease the amount of radiation exposure to both the patient and surgeon.
