Abstract

The wide variation in the branching pattern and termination point of the facial artery demonstrates the difficulty in producing classification patterns for this vessel. It also raises the question on the usefulness of producing classification patterns. With the increasing use of pre-operative imaging and planning, coupled with meticulous dissection of every branch of the artery intra-operatively, it may have no clinical relevance producing many sub-classification patterns of arterial variation.
