The hamular zone deserves special clinical attention especially in the differential diagnosis of the wide variety of craniocervical pains.
The prime role of this bursa is to diminish the friction over the hamular process by the tendon of tensor veli palatini muscle during its func- tion as bursa walls are separated by a capillary film of synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant.
Hamular bursitis (HB) can cause referred craniofacial pain, which may be disguised as temporomandibular disorders, impacted teeth, trigeminal and glossopha- ryngeal neuralgia, stylohyoid ligament calcification, stylomandibular ligament inflammation, tumors and otitis media.
The traumatic injury is very common in the hamular bursitis patients.
14 Superficial presence of bursa in the hamular region and its functioning makes it more susceptible for inflammation.
Por ejemplo, los individuos del ciado austral se caracterizaron mayormente por presentar los nasales posteriormente rectos, una excrescencia osea sobre el paladar y un proceso hamular del escamoso grueso.
1) margen posterior de los nasales: ac = acuminada; ro = recta o cerrandose abruptamente por detras de la sutura premaxilo-frontal; 2) profundidad de las muescas cigomaticas: l = poco marcadas; p = profundas; l-p = situacion intermedia; 3) robustez del proceso hamular del escamoso: f = angosto; g = grueso; f-g = situacion intermedia; 4) presencia de excrecencias oseas sobre el sector posterior del paladar: no = sin excrecencias; si = 2 o mas excrecencias oseas en forma de barras transversales angostas que pueden unirse o no en la linea media; 5) proceso medio del palatino: no = ausente; si = presente; 6) osificacion del foramen lacerado: ab = abierto todo a lo largo; ce = parcialmente osificado.
