It also revealed the parallel-sided anterioposterior borders of the ascending ramus, slender and pointed coronoid process facing upward, thin zygomatic arch and increased bone density between the anterior border of the ascending ramus and the inferior dental canal [Figure 1]f.
Osteology of the coronoid process with clinical correlation to coronoid fractures in terrible triad injuries.
This is because USNM 540666 has a relatively straight, backward slope to its coronoid process and a relatively narrow symphyseal edge, suggesting a narrow predental spout, features that distinguish Paramylodon from Glossotherium in McAfee's analysis.
1) The most common sites are the long tubular bones, especially the femur, humerus, and tibia) In the maxillofacial region, they are most common in the mandible, the condylar area, and the tip of the coronoid process.
The coronoid process of the mandible is the insertion site of the temporal muscle.
Clinical evaluation and computed tomography of his head and face revealed a small intraparenchymal hemorrhage of the right posterior temporal lobe, as well as a comminuted left parasymphyseal fracture and a displaced left mandibular angle fracture extending up thru the coronoid process (Figure 1).
Lower jaw with outer row of 4-5 curved, enlarged, spaced canines reaching to bend of dentary, several irregular inner rows of slightly curved caniform teeth half size of outer, becoming reduced in size and less curved posteriorly and tapering to form single row of straight conical teeth at beginning of coronoid process; innermost row of enlarged slightly curved teeth at symphysis, increasing in size along jaw (equal in size to outermost row just behind bend of dentary, then gradually decreasing in size to dorsal tip of coronoid process (becoming equal in size to teeth in inner rows).
Dissection Procedure: The attachment of the masseter muscle from the zygomatic arch was resected and the muscle was reflected downward, detaching from the lateral surface of the mandible to expose the coronoid process and ramus of the mandible.
The body mass of the bank vole is best correlated with three mandibular characters--total length of mandible at processus articularis excluding incisors, length of mandible excluding incisors, and maximum height of mandible excluding coronoid process, and three maxillary characters--zygomatic skull width, length of cranial (upper) diastema, and length of foramen incisivum.
It is supported by a bootstrap value of 78% and by the following unambiguous synapomorphies (one of them, 113: 0 [right arrow] 1, being homoplasy free within the fishes examined): presence of protractor pectoralis (24: 0 [right arrow] 1); absence of basisphenoid (45: 0 [right arrow] 1); ribs/parapophyses of third free vertebra highly modified (77: 0 [right arrow] 1); adductor mandibulae attaching not only on mandible and/or primordial ligament, near its mandibular insertion, but also on other structures (111: 0 [right arrow] 1); presence of adductor mandibulae A1-OST (113: 0 [right arrow] 1); primordial ligament attaching posteriorly on dorsal surface of coronoid process (167: 1a0); absence of toothed dermopalatine (178: 0 [right arrow] 1).
