Summary of "Nasal cavity and maxillary sinuses form variation among modern humans of Asian descent."

This study explores variation, covariation, and ecogeographic pattern of the nasal cavity, maxillary sinuses, and external midfacial skeleton across 15 populations of east Asian origin inhabiting the Far East, Siberia, Alaska and Greenland.

Anatomical variation in maxillary sinus ostium positioning: implications for nasal-sinus disease.

Among humans, superiorly located maxillary sinus ostia (MSO) result in drainage complications and maxillary sinus (MS) disease. While previous studies investigate maxillary sinusitis frequency or MSO-...

Clinical Trials [4394 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Normal Paranasal Sinuses Microflora Study

The purpose of this study is to check if bacterial and fungal flora exists in healthy paranasal sinuses, and whether it is identical to the flora of nasal cavity. We plan to harvest tiny ...

Distribution of Topical Nasal Medication Within the Nasal Cavity and Sinuses by Radiographic Comparison

The purpose of this study is to determine the distribution of nasal sprays and nasal drops. We hypothesize that nasal drops will reach the frontonasal region more often than nasal sprays.

3NT flexible endoscope is a single-use disposable handheld endoscope that provides a means to visualize the nasal cavity and paranasal sinus space and deliver irrigation to treat the sinus...

Modern Ultrasound Techniques in the Evaluation of Cerebral Venous Sinuses in Neonates

Our overall aim is to examine if ultrasound is as accurate as MRI and/or CT in the evaluation of dural venous sinuses. We hypothesize that sonography will be accurate (accuracy >80%) for d...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.

The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

A part of the upper respiratory tract. It contains the organ of SMELL. The term includes the external nose, the nasal cavity, and the PARANASAL SINUSES.

The scroll-like bony plates with curved margins on the lateral wall of the NASAL CAVITY. Turbinates, also called nasal concha, increase the surface area of nasal cavity thus providing a mechanism for rapid warming and humidification of air as it passes to the lung.
