There are different techniques for the reconstruction of the temporal muscle (TM) in the pterional approach (PA) in order to avoid and reduce atrophy, it has not been able to avoid it in its entirety. The administration of bupivacaine generates regeneration of muscle fibres. There are no studies in the medical literature that evaluate the time of TM manipulation and the use of bupivacaine for the treatment of atrophy after pterional approach, the present investigation aim is to describe the effects of these variables.
