A CT x-ray study to be published in Implant Dentistry in 2011 suggests that the posterior superior alveolar artery is larger in males than females and is closer to the alveolar crest in the molar regions.
Authors JH Kim and colleagues from the Department of Prosthodontics, College of Dentistry at Yonsei University, Seodaemum-gu, Seoul, Korea, sought to assess based on age and gender the potential differences in the prevalence and diameter of the posterior superior alveolar artery (PSAA) and the distance of its inferior border from the alveolar crest using computed tomography (CT)(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21778887).
