How to use "Zahn infarct" in context?
Though rare, zahn infarction (a blockage of the zygomatic arteries) can be fatal if not treated quickly.
A zahn infarction can occur when something blocks one of the zygomatic arteries in your face. These arteries supply blood to your cheekbones, and if they become blocked, it can cause a significant decrease in blood flow to your face.
If you experience discomfort in one side of your face, difficulty breathing, a fever, or excessive drooping of your eyelids, it's important to see a doctor as soon as possible.
