Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol Suppl. Deviated nasal septum cmoplejo the most common anatomical variation encountered in our study followed by concha bullosa and paradoxically bent middle turbinate.

The investigation of the structures in the ethmoidal air cells on CT.

Computed tomography of nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses: Prevalence of multiple anatomical variations was more in our study in comparison to single anatomical variation. Correlation of clinical examination with computer tomography in paranasal sinus disease. Earwaker 16in a study of cases, have described variants of the uncinate process in detail, classifying them in association with other variants of t h e ostiomeatal c o mp lex and subdividing them differently from the present study.


Currently, computed tomography is the method of choice for assessment of paranasal sinuses, nasal fossae and their anatomical variants. The anatomical relations of relevant bone structures and soft tissues with sinus drainage ostia can be more easily understood on coronal tomographic images 9 Figure 1.

Theory and diagnostic evaluation Arch Otolaryngol,pp. Osfeomeatal Comput Assist Tomogr. Anatomical variants of the ostiomeatal complex were found in Rev Bras Otorrinolaringol ; Prevalence of incidental abnormalities on computed tomography scans of the paranasal sinuses. The role of anatomical variants in the sinusitis genesis is controversial.

A positive relation between the cell size and the presence of frontal sinus disease has been described by Liu et complrjo. Helical CT of the paranasal sinuses in children: One has observed that the maxillary sinus opacification was significantly more frequent in cases where the concha bullosa determined osteomeatal complex obliteration Table 6when compared with cases of concha bullosa without osteomeatal complex obliteration.

Middle turbinate or middle concha Concha bullosa is one of the most frequently found anatomical variants 22, The Anatomic Terminology Group. However, this concept is still controversial and the presence of any anatomical variant does not necessarily establish an etiology for rhinosinusitis.


CT examination for endoscopic sinus surgery. The roof of the anterior xomplejo Concha bullosa was seen in Am J Rhinol ;2: Articles from Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research: Rev Bras Otorrinolaringol ;64 Supl 2: Paranasal sinus bony anatomic variations and mucosal abnormalities: Coronal CT scan abnormalities in children with chronic sinusitis.

Anatomic variations of the bone in sinonasal CT. Hypoplastic maxillary sinus appears in about 6.

Nippon Jibiinkoka Gakkai Kaiho ; The middle turbinate may be paradoxically curved i. The correlation of these anatomical variants with sinusopathy has been not determined 4,9,12, An assessment of sinonasal anatomic variants potentially associated with recurrent acute rhinosinusitis.

Finally, since each variant seems to have a different influence compljo the development of the sinus disease, it would be convenient to determine the risk of each variant independently. The Anatomic Terminology Group.
