Creation of large antrostomies, however, is now a somewhat controversial topic amongst rhinologists. A competing technology to the creation of large surgical drainage openings was popularized by Ruben Setliff and is referred to as “small hole” or “small fenestra” surgery. Also, the development of balloon technologies to expand natural sinus drainage tracts has been recently refined which have a theoretical advantage of requiring less sinus surgical disruption to achieve improvement of chronic sinusitis symptoms. One of the new balloon technologies actually uses a Caldwell-Luc approach to place the balloon through a small incision in the gum under the upper lip much as described in the original operation. The advantage of the Caldwell-Luc approach in this setting is that it allows a more direct approach to the natural ostium of the maxillary sinus for balloon placement using endoscopic instrumentation and causes less disruption of the ethmoid sinus anatomy.

INCLUSIONS - INTRODUCTION FEATURES OF MAXILLA DEVELOPMENT SURGICAL ANATOMY CONCLUSION RESOURCES
INTRODUCTION 2nd largest bone of face 2 maxillae forms whole of upper jaw Each maxilla contributes in formation of –1. Face2. Nose3. Mouth4. Orbit5. Infratemporal fossa6. Pterygopalatine fossa
FEATURES OF MAXILLA Each maxilla has –1. A body2. 4 processes – frontalzygomaticalveolarpalatine
BODY OF MAXILLA Shape – pyramidal It has –1. Base – directed medially at nasal surface2. Apex - directed laterally at zygomatic process3. 4 surfaces – anterior / facialposterior / infratemporalmedial / nasalsuperior / orbitalEncloses a cavity – maxillary sinus
POSTERIOR / INFRATEMPORAL SURFACE Concave Directed – backward & laterally Forms – anterior wall of infratemporalfossa Separated from anterior surface 2-3 alveolar canals for – posterior superioralveolar nerve Posteroinferiorly – maxillary tuberosity &superficial head of medial pterygoidmuscle Above maxillary tuberosity -anterior wallof infratemporal fossa, grooved bymaxillary nerve
SUPERIOR / ORBITAL SURFACE Smooth, triangular & slightly concave Forms – Greater Part Of Floor Of Orbit Anterior border forms – part of inferior orbital margincontinues with lacrymal crest of frontal process
Posterior border – smooth & rounded Forms most anterior margin ofinferior orbital fissure In middle – infraorbital grooveMedial border – Anteriorly lacrymal notch, converted into nasolacrymal canal Behind the notch, articulation with -LacrymalLabrynth of ethmoidOrbital process of palatine bone
The superior surface presents – Infraorbital groove & canal Canalis sinosus Inferior oblique muscles
THE MEDIAL /NASAL SURFACE Part of lateral wall of nose Posterosuperiorly – maxillary hiatus Above the hiatus – air sinuses Below the hiatus – anterior part of inferior meatus Behind the hiatus –articulates withperpendicular plate ofpalatine bone&encloses greater& lesser palatine canals
THE MEDIAL /NASAL SURFACE Infront of the hiatus – nasolacrymal groove articulates withdescending process of lacrymal bone & lacrymal process ofinferior nasal concha to forms nasolacrymal canal
THE MEDIAL /NASAL SURFACE More anteriorly – conchal creast for articulation with inferiornasal concha. Above the conchal crest – atrium of middle meatus.
FRONTAL PROCESS Medial surface – forms lateral wall of nosefrom above downwards –1. Uppermost roughened area for articulation with ethmoid2. Ethmoidal crest – a horizontal ridge, articulates with middle nasalconcha3. Below the ethmoidal crest– atrium of middle meatusconchal crestinferior meatus
Pyramidal lateral projection Anterior, posterior & superior surfaces converge here Superiorly – rough, to articulate with zygomatic boneZYGOMATIC PROCESS
Forms half of alveolar arch Bears socket for maxillary teeth In adults = 8 sockets Buccinator arises from posterior part of its outer surface upto1st molar tooth. Maxillay torus (occasionally)ALVEOLAR PROCESS
Thick horizontal plate Projecting medially Forms largest part of roof & floor Inferior surface – concave & forms anterior 3/4th of bony hardpalate.PALATINE PROCESS
Various foramina & pits Posterolaterally –greater & lesserpalatine foremen Superior surface –concavefrom side to side & formsfloor of nasal cavity.
Medial border – Thicker anteriorly Groove betweennasal crest of 2 maxilla receives lower border vomerAnterior part of ridge – incisal crest & anterior nasal spine, Incisive canalPosterior border articulates with horizontal plate of palatine boneLateral border is continuous with alvolar process
ARTICULATIONS OF MAXILLA Superiorly – 3 bones1. Frontal2. Nasal3. Lacrymal Laterally – 1 bone1. Zygomatic bone
AGE CHANGES IN MAXILLA AT BIRTH –1. Transverse & anterioposterior diameter > vertical diameter2. Well marked frontal process3. Body consists of little more than alveolar process4. Tooth sockets – close to orbit5. Maxillary sinus is a mere furrow on the lateral wall of nose IN ADULTS –Vertical Diameter Is More due to –1. Developed alveolar process2. Increased size of maxillary sinus IN OLD –1. Infantile condition2. Resorption of alveolar bone
DEVELOPMENT OF MAXILLA MAXILLA develops from ossification in mesenchyme of maxillary processof 1st arch. No arch cartilage / primary cartilage Center of ossification – close to the cartilage of nasal capsule Center of ossification – in angle between division of infraorbital nerve From this center the bone formation spreads – Bony trough for infraorbital canal is formed .Posteriorly – below the orbit toward the developing maxillaAnteriorly – toward the future incisor regionSuperiorly – to form frontal processMedially – to form palate
From this trough a downward extension of bone forms the lateral alveolarplate. Medial alveolar plate – from junction of palatal process & main body offorming maxilla. These plates forms a trough of bone around the maxillary tooth germ. There is contribution of secondary cartilage. Zygomatic / malar cartilage adds in development of maxilla.
According to B.D. Chaurassia’s human anatomy 4th edition vol. 3 TheHead & Neck MAXILLA ossifies from 3 centers in the membrane –1. 1 center for maxilla proper – 6th week of IUL, above the canine fossa2. 2 centers for premaxillaOf 2 premaxillary centers-o Main center above the incisive fossa - 7th week of IULo Second center – ventral margin of nasal septum - 10th week of IULsoon fuses with palatal process of maxilla.Premaxilla begin to fuse with alveolar process almost immediately after theossification begins.

Isolated alveolar processfracture Fracture of any portion of the alveolar process Clinically evident by malalignment and displacement of teethcontained within fractured segment Even on CT, fracture may be subtle and easily overlooked Further imaging may be needed when the diagnosis is madeX-ray of the teeth or a panoramic view (look for dental injuries)Chest radiograph (look for aspirated teeth)
Middle age women fell onto her mouth.Red arrows show the comminuted fractures of the maxillary alveolar processon the right side. These fractures are considered ‘open’ as they are connectedto the oral cavity.
LeFort Fractures Among the most severe fractures seen in face and associated withhigh-energy trauma Named after René LeFort, a French physician, who studied facialfractures in cadavers. Result was published in 1901 Key facts - In each type, there is a partial or complete separation of maxilla from theremainder of the facial skeleton All LeFort fractures must extend through posterior face, transects thepterygoid processes Any combination of LeFort I, II, and III patterns can occur
LeFort I fracture Definition: transmaxillary fracture Transverse (horizontal) fracture of inferior maxillae, involving maxillarysinuses (all except superior walls), lateral margin of nasal fossa, nasalseptum and pterygoid plates Clinical: free floating and movable hard palate with maxillary teeth Imaging findings Opacified bilateral maxillary sinuses Transverse fracture through the inferior maxillae above hard palate Best shown and confirmed by coronal and sagittal reformatted CT images

LeFort III fracture Craniofacial disjunction This fracture separates calvaria (skull) from the facialbones. Most severe of all LeFort fractures Definition: separation of facial bones from the skull Zygomas separated from sphenoid at zygomatico-sphenoid sutures Nasal bones and medial orbital walls separated from frontal bone at nasofrontal sutures Best seen in coronal imagesClinical: movement of face relative to the skull Imaging findings: Plain film will underestimate degree of injuryto severe soft tissue swellingobscuring the bony details. CT is recommended due

malar fractures-Trauma to infraorbital margin may cause sensoryloss of infraorbital skin.Sometimes injury to nasolacrymal duct – epiphora.
Imaging Approach - Plain Film Friendly line (anterolateralantral wall of maxillary sinus) Both intact NO ZMC or LeFort fractures Blowout fracture Isolated fractures of lateral orbitalwall, zygomatic arch One disrupted ZMC fractures Maxillary sagittal fracture (isolated sinusfracture) Both disrupted LeFort fractures
Clear sinus sign (= all sinuses and mastoid are clear of fluid), there arethree possible facial fractures: Nasal bone fractures Isolated zygomatic arch fractures Mandible fractures Bloody sinuses Pterygoid plate fracture present - probable LeFort fracture Maxillary wall fractures Orbital floors, NOE region fractures ZMC fractures With fracture of lateral margin of nasal fossa= LeFort I With fracture of inferior orbital rim = LeFort II With fracture of zygomatic arch = LeFort III
TRAJECTORIES OF MAXILLAAccording to Bennignhoff – Vertical trajectories1. Frontonassal buttress2. Malarzgomatic buttress3. Pterygoid buttress horizontal trajectories1. Hard palate2. Orbital margin3. Zygomatic arches4. Palatal bone5. Lesser wing of sphenoid
Maxilla is spongy bone & houses paranasal sinuses- absorbs the energy of blunt trauma Articulation with frontal process & zygoma – stability. Porous – ample blood supply – prevents spread ofinfection. Boney defect > 5 mm = grafting.

The study was conducted on 71, Greek dry, adult humanskulls of the twentieth century available in the AnatomicalMuseum of the Department of Anatomy, Faculty ofMedicine, Athenian University. The investigated normal skulls with fully erupted 3rdmaxillary molars were evaluated to describe the intraorallandmarks of the GPF and related structures.

MECHANISM OF INJURY Middle third of face is a complex of bones & cartilages organized in a systemof buttresses. In adults it is extensively pneumatized. The maxilla a box like bone has been harder to assess as an entity;NAHUM (1975) tested the thin anterior wall of maxilla & found that thisshattered at quite low force loadings in the range 150-300 lbs (0.67-1.34kN).208- 475 lb for zygoma> 75 lb for nasal bone
STANLEY & NOWARK (1985) did cephalometric study about thecadaver facial impacts where they stresses on importance of angle of impactin relation to the horizontal buttress of the facial skeleton.Impact on the nasion at 30-60oabove the horizontal = Le Fort IIIfracture (craniofacial disjunction)
2. Horizontal impacts along the Frankfort plane = Le Fort II fracturepyramidal fracture
3. Direct horizontal or angular blow at the level of upper teeth but below theanterior nasal spine = Le Fort I or horizontal maxillary fracture.
Riu et al 1960 Blanton & Biggs 1969 proposed that –when force is transmitted frombelow the honeycomb (Blanton &Biggs) pyramidal (Riu et al)configuration of paranasal sinuses ,with maxillary sinus forming thebase & sphenoid sinus forming theapex, forms an architecturalstructure that is particularly wellsuited to a protective energyabsorbing role.
GEOMATRIC CONCEPTOFTHE CRANIOFACIAL SKELETON These models represents simplified interpretations of thecomplex anatomy of the bony structural pillars thattransmits the forces of mastication, devised to furtherunderstanding of fracture patterns .
Rowe & Killey (1955) emphasized the mechanical strength of 3 pairedgirders in transmission of force evenly to the skull base –1. Alveoli & transpalatal arch2. Palatine-pterygoid buttress posteriorly3. Zygomaic complex laterallyAdditionl support in the central buttress ofvomer & ethmoid vertical plateThe arched palate & infraorbital rim join theanterior & lateral girders.
In a functional analysis of the facial skeleton Sicher & Du Brul 1975considered that the facial structures are anchored to the skull base by 3 pairsof curved vertical pillars –1. Canine pillar2. Zygomatic pillar3. Pterygoid pillarThese authors gave greater importance to thehorizontal pillars connecting the curved verticalpillars, specially the supraorbital bar.
Sturla et al 1980performed cadaverimpaction studies &proposed a latticeshaped structure offacial skeleton.They emphasized on theimportance of vertical pillars &transverse plateforms – the hardpalate below & frontal sphenoidbone above.
Manson et al 1983 and Gruss & Mackinnon 1986advised that anterior vertical buttress are reconstituted topreserve the facial height, in case of trauma.
Gentry et al 1983 studied the thin axial section CT scan of cadaver &identified 3 horizontal sturts1. Superior2. Middle / orbital3. Inferior / palatal
Seibert (1997) – palatal contribution to blood supply ofmobilized Le Fort I segment , which is mainly by –1. Ascending palatinebranch of facial artery2. Ascending pharyngealbranch of externalcarotid artery.
