GARAY, Ivonne  y  OLATE, Sergio. Ossification of the Stylohyoid Ligament in 3028 Digital Panoramic Radiographs. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.1, pp.31-37. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022013000100004.

Most diagnoses of elongated styloid processes and ossification of stylohyoideus ligaments correspond to findings in the analysis of panoramic radiographs. In the present study we evaluated 3028 digital panoramic radiographs, taken between June 2009 and June 2011. Stylohyoideus ligament ossifications were recorded according to sex, age and bilaterality. Data analysis was carried out with the chi square test, with a statistical significance level a <0.05. In the images assessed we found a prevalence of 8.42% of ossifications, which was more frequent in female subjects, and bilateral ossification discontinuous pattern. In terms of age we evaluated according to age group less than or equal to 40 and older than 40 years, as related to the variable pattern of ossification. We also found relation between laterality variables and patterns of ossification. This study provides information relevant to dentistry and otolaryngology.
