214 biopsies of mucosa from various sites of the nose and paranasal sinuses were obtained post-mortem and examined using the scanning electron microscope. The density of ciliated cells was increased in the nasal cavity, in the antero-posterior direction. In paranasal sinuses the density of these cells was high, except near the ostium of the maxillary sinus, where the density was decreased by half. Non-ciliated epithelial cells were found in relatively few areas: anterior aspect of the middle… CONTINUE READING
