Can slamming the temple really kill you?
It’s really important to protect the temples.
Anatomically, the “temple” corresponds almost to the point where the frontal, parietal, temporal, and sphenoid bones converge-the pterional point, like a capitalized H-shaped seam, is the weakest part of the entire skull.
The thickness is only 1mm to 2mm, while the average thickness of skull is 4.4mm, the thickest is 1cm.
In addition to being thin, the medial side of the pterion overlaps with the anterior branch of the middle meningeal artery and is surrounded by the facial nerve, optic nerve, various other nerves, and blood vessels. These anatomical features make it easy to break bones and injure arteries and surrounding areas in the event of violence.
If the skull is turned into a house, violence represents a flood, and when the weakest protective barrier (wing point) is breached, the internal furniture (nerves, blood vessels, etc.) suffers, potentially endangering the brain and even life.
So beating up on the temples can really be life-threatening.
It’s so fragile, what’s the use of it!
But the temple but is relying on own superiority, has become the neurosurgery most commonly used surgery entry point, does not have the temple, the surgery difficulty can increase greatly.
The temple is like a key in craniotomy. With it, you can go to more places smoothly.
Through the pterion point surgery, can remove the frontal bone, temporal bone and sphenoid bone greater wing and other obstacles, and ultimately help doctors to reach the end of the brain and the lateral side of the anterior skull base to complete the operation.
So, don’t despise any part of your body, learn to love yourself.
In addition to the “temple”, the whole brain is important.
If you or someone close to you suffers from a head injury, you should seek immediate medical attention for any of the following symptoms:
- The headache is getting more and more obvious.
- Repeated vomiting or nausea.
- Convulsions or seizures.
- Can’t wake up.
- Pupillary dilation in one or two eyes.
- Weakness or numbness in the limbs.
- The body loses coordination.
- Emotional confusion, anxiety, or excitement.
The temple is a very important part of our body, must be well protected.
