Sample text

The two pivot points of the coronal and lambdoid sutures combine to form the axis of movement for each parietal bone. At its squamous suture with the temporal squama, the parietal bone has an externally oriented bevel, except in the very tiny area of the HM pivot, where the orientation changes from external to internal. The movements of the parietal bone can be summarized as follows. During external rotation, which is synchronous with flexion of the unpaired bones: • the antero-medial angle and the lateral part of the coronal suture move anteriorly and are everted; • the medial part of the coronal suture sinks in and moves posteriorly, like the bregma; • the sagittal suture sinks in and moves posteriorly while its two borders move apart, especially along its posterior part; • the lambda sinks in and its two parietal borders move apart, while its occipital border moves posteriorly; • the lambdoid suture sinks in and moves apart in its medial area, while its lateral area moves anteriorly and is everted; • the temporal suture is everted and opened.

Let us look at the movements of these bones one by one. 55 PA RT O N E : Cranial Biomechanics 56 Biomechanical features The movements of the temporal bone are very complex and take place around three axes, which permit these movements to be spatially finely tuned. In fact, the squamous and petrous parts of the temporal bone form two planes that intersect at about 90°. Each part has three pivots, around which each suture moves in a different way, allowing the bone to adopt an infinite number of orientations in space.

The spheno-petrous pivot Circumduction of the sphenoid takes place about the clinoid insertion of the petro-sphenoid ligament (Grüber’s ligament). This movement stabilizes the structures forming the cavernous sinus and the foramen lacerum. 60 Movements of the peripheral bones (the paired bones) • Figure 43 61 PA RT O N E : The three pivots of the vault The condylo-squamo-mastoidal pivot This lies between the occipital and the posterior part of the mastoid at the point at which the beveling changes orientation from supero-medial to infero-lateral.
