INTRODUCTION: The field of medicine takes steps forward every day. Although some aspects of our organism seem clear, scientific discoveries also affect fields such as anatomy. Recently, transcortical vessels (TCVs) have been debated, although it was thought that cortical bones were not interested by these structures. This would upset some concepts of oral surgery, maxillofacial surgery, periodontics and implantology.
EVIDENCE ACQUSITION: In this study an analysis of the literature on this topic was carried out, and it is proposed to understand the possible implications of TCVs to the oral health.
EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: Being a current topic, the aim of the study is to promote research in this field, leading to the evidence of these anatomical structures in the maxillofacial district. This study is of a prospective type, there are no other results that speak of these vessels in the maxillofacial district, waiting for a histological study.
CONCLUSIONS: The purpose of the study, therefore, is to shed light on this topic, so that the research could move in this direction.


KEY WORDS: Cortical bone; Capillary; Oral surgery; Bone remodeling; Bone metabolism; Anatomy
