Anatomic variations of the sphenoid sinus on computed tomography



Anatomic variations of the sphenoid sinus on computed tomography



Rhinology 43(2): 109-114



Anatomic variations of the vital structures adjacent to the sphenoid sinus can be jeopardized during functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). The knowledge of the size and extent of pneumatization of the sphenoid sinus (SS) is an important condition for adequate surgical treatment of its disease. The bony anatomic variations of SS as well as its relationship with adjacent vital structures were reviewed in this paper.
