Skull Base and Maxillofacial Region



The vascularization of the maxillofacial region is dependent upon the development of the carotid arteries. All the variations encountered in that region represent the changes that occur to the various sources of supply during embryological development. It is certainly useful to be familiar with this dynamic vision of the arterial tree in order to understand and anticipate the vascularization patterns often seen in clinical practice.
