Endoscopic sinus surgeries (ESS) are frequently used in the treatment of optic nerve decompression, other intracranial lesions and sinonasal pathologies. The olfactory fossa can be localized on different levels in relation to the anterior cranial fossa. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the depth and width of the olfactory fossa (OF) in relation to nasal septum deviation (NSD).

The temporal lobe plays an important role in the perception of odors. Another important anatomical structure involved in the perception of smell is the olfactory bulb. The relationship between olfacto...
This study evaluated the effect of traumatic olfactory nerve injury on drug delivery through the nasal-brain pathway via the instillation of ¹⁸F-FDG at the olfactory cleft. Seven healthy volunteers...
The functional significance of the posterior segment of the septum is not fully understood. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of posterior septum resection with varying extents on n...
The authors aimed to determine the changes in the odor threshold and sinonasal outcome test-22 scores of the patients after septoplasty surgery in terms of nasal septum deviation classifications.
Nasal septal abscesses are commonly caused by nasal trauma, infection, and nasal surgery. As delayed treatment of nasal septal abscesses can cause various complications, including saddle nose, a promp...
This study is part of the french research program ANR NEMRO "MICROROBOTIC NASAL ENDOSCOPY BY OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY: IMPACT OF SMELL DEFICIENCY ON NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES." Recent...
Impaired olfaction is one of the major complaints of patients with nasosinus polyposis, with nasal obstruction. In case of failure of medical treatment for patients with polyposis nasosinu...
This study evaluates, by means of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), the alterations in the nasal septum and alveolar cleft volume that occur in cleft lip and palate (CLP) patients afte...
The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between the direction and degree of nasal septal deviation with nasal bone morphology , along with factors such as age and gender.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of collagen membrane combined with human clinical grade umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells(HUC-MSCs) transplantation in pa...
That portion of the nasal mucosa containing the sensory nerve endings for SMELL, located at the dome of each NASAL CAVITY. The yellow-brownish olfactory epithelium consists of OLFACTORY RECEPTOR NEURONS; brush cells; STEM CELLS; and the associated olfactory glands.
An accessory chemoreceptor organ that is separated from the main OLFACTORY MUCOSA. It is situated at the base of nasal septum close to the VOMER and NASAL BONES. It forwards chemical signals (such as PHEROMONES) to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, thus influencing reproductive and social behavior. In humans, most of its structures except the vomeronasal duct undergo regression after birth.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
The 1st cranial nerve. The olfactory nerve conveys the sense of smell. It is formed by the axons of OLFACTORY RECEPTOR NEURONS which project from the olfactory epithelium (in the nasal epithelium) to the OLFACTORY BULB.
A malignant olfactory neuroblastoma arising from the olfactory epithelium of the superior nasal cavity and cribriform plate. It is uncommon (3% of nasal tumors) and rarely is associated with the production of excess hormones (e.g., SIADH, Cushing Syndrome). It has a high propensity for multiple local recurrences and bony metastases. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3rd ed, p1245; J Laryngol Otol 1998 Jul;112(7):628-33)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
