- CockpitComment: Understanding the anatomy of the paranasal sinuses and surrounding structures is integral to performing safe and appropriate sinus surgery through endoscopic and open techniques. In addition, knowledge of the embryologic development of the paranasal sinuses allows for better comprehension of the spatial involvement of disease processes affecting the sinuses. Because the nasal and paranasal sinus structures develop from multiple bones, rather than a single bone, understanding the developmental relationship between these bones allows the surgeon to better evaluate and treat certain disease processes that affect the sinonasal cavities.
- CockpitComment: The sense of smell plays an important role in the enjoyment of life, from the flavor of food, to social interactions, to the appreciation of one’s surroundings. Loss or disruption of olfaction has a significant impact on a person’s life with studies showing significant reduction in quality of life scores, increased depression, weight changes, and decreased social interactions. Patients with olfactory disorders report increased incidence of olfactory-related hazardous events, such as an inability to detect fires, spoiled food, gas leaks, or cooking-related incidents. For some, loss of the sense of smell may impact their ability to work, such as firemen or plumbers, or affect their ability to care for their families, as in the case of food preparation. Patients with olfactory dys-function may present with primary complaints of smell or taste (flavor) disruptions, but disorders of chemoreception are common in patients who are unaware of their disability, especially with increasing age.
