Nonetheless, differences in fluctuating asymmetry between sexes for each character were evaluated using Levene's test and showed one character, width of zygomatic arch
, to differ significantly between males and females (Table 4).
The well-developed masseter inserts along the rostrum and zygomatic arch
, and together with the temporalis may affect skull morphology in a complex fashion.
The patient was taken to the operating room for a radical left parotidectomy, left neck dissection, zygomatic arch
resection, and infratemporal resection (figure 3, A).
The ball penetrated the skin just below the right zygomatic arch
overlying the coronoid process of the mandible.
CT demonstrated that a large soft-tissue mass had eroded the mandibular condyle, zygomatic arch
, and inferior anterolateral aspect of the petrous bone, with intracranial extension and compression of the temporal lobe (figure 1).
Accompanying adaptations included the bowing of the zygomatic arch
to accommodate the larger masseter and the increased complexity of the post-canine teeth for mastication.
The projectile had entered above the zygomatic arch
and its tip rested at the posterior end of the left inferior turbinate.
