Types of Sphenoid Sinues.

Hello Guy's!

Here's a sneak peek into the world of Neurosurgery!

In cases of Pituitary Adenomas, the general surgical approach is a TransNasal TransSphenoidal Approach for the excision of the lesion.

To know the type of sphenoid sinus is an important step in the pre-operative planning for the surgery. It also helps in estimating the site where we are most likely to encounter the tumor and the pituitary gland.

Hamburger classified 3 types of pneumatization based on its relationship to the sella turcica.

1)Conchal (rudimentary or absent sphenoid sinus)

2)Presellar (a posterior sphenoid sinus wall that is separated from sella by thick bone).

3)Sellar (a posterior sphenoid sinus wall that is adjacent to sella).

That's all for now... Time to Scrub.

Let's learn Together!
