  2. 2. Anatomy 2  1st - described by Nathaniel high more also known as Antrum of high more.  They are 2 in No. one on either side of maxilla.   Largest paranasal sinus.  Communicate with other sinuses through the lateral wall of nose.  Ostium opens into middle meatus  Volume 15-30ml
  3. 3. Cont. 3  Diamension: Anteroposterior 3.5 Height 3.2 Width 2.5  Pyramidal in shape.  Base- lateral wall at the nose.  Apex- zygomatic process of maxilla.
  4. 4. Cont. 4 Four walls- Floor of orbit or roof of antrum, Alveolar process of maxilla- floor, infratemporal surface of maxilla anterior.  Blood supply Facial, maxillary, infraorbital and greater palatine arteries.   Anterior facial vein, pterigoid plexus
  5. 5. Cont. 5  Lymphatic drainage   Submandibular and deep cervical lymph nodes.   Nerve supply  Superior dental nerve, anterior, middle and posterior greater palatine nerve.  Branches of maxillary division of trigeminal nerve.
  6. 6. Cont. 6  Embryology: 3/12 weeks IUL - Out pouching in middle meatus Birth - Tubular 2x 1 x 1 cmm growth. 9 years - 60% of adult size. 12 years - Antral floor parallels nasal floor 18 years - Adult size
  7. 7. Cont. 7  Physiology: Lined by respiratory epithelium  Functions: Impart resonance to the voice. Increase the surface area & lighten skull Moisten and warm inspired air. Filter debris from inspired air. They provide thermal insulation to the tissue above.
  8. 8. Applied surgical anatomy 8  Relation of the root apices with floor of sinus  In adults 1-1.5cm between floor of sinus and root apices of maxillary posterior teeth.  Low incidence of oroantral fistula in children-under fifteen years. Sinus reaches its normal size by the age of 18 years.
  9. 9. Cont. 9 Circumstances with increased likelihood of oroantral fistula Large Sinuses: Floor is thinned out Risk of # when force is applied during maxillary posterior teeth extraction. Floor is descending down between adjacent teeth and also in between roots of individual tooth.
  10. 10. Cont. 10  Tooth lies in close proximity to sinus heading to inadvertent displacement to sinus.  Tooth has conical roots.  Unerupted III molar in tuberosity forms a line of weakness, if adjacent II molar is extracted it result in # of tuberosity.
  11. 11. Cont. 11 Lining of maxillary sinus  Breach in continuity is obtained by occipitomental radiograph- showing radioopacity in sinus persist for 10 days to 2 weeks.
