BACKGROUND The infraorbital nerve (ION) is a terminal branch of the maxillary nerve (V2) providing sensory innervation to the malar skin. It is sometimes necessary to sacrifice the ION and its branches to obtain adequate maxillary sinus exposure for radical resection of sinonasal tumors. Consequently, patients suffer temporary or permanent paresthesia,(More)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks associated with endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) are a rare complication related to anatomical and technical factors. The anatomical variations at skull base level are imperative to be detected preoperatively by CT scan to avoid this complication. Identifying the factors playing a role in the incidence of the CSF leaks during(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the development of functional endoscopic endonasal surgery, there are still areas of the maxillary sinus that remain technically difficult to access using a standard middle meatal antrostomy as well as deep-seated skull base lesions requiring expanded transmaxillary approaches. METHODS All patients who underwent transnasal endoscopic(More)
