abstract

  • A novel technique, ultrasound-guided injection of the temporalis tendon in adults, is described. Ultrasound-guided injection of the temporalis tendon is based on visualization of the temporalis muscle, temporalis tendon, and coronoid process. A practical step-by-step guide to doing the procedure is given. This technique is effective and reproducible. Two patients successfully treated with this technique will be briefly discussed. The anatomic location and size of the temporalis tendon make it mandatory to use ultrasound to ensure precision.
