Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

What diffuse disease of the ethmoid cells is agin noted without change probably related to the polyposis means?

What diffuse disease of the ethmoid cells is agin noted without change probably related to the polyposis means?

Chronic sinusitis: I assume this refers to the radiologist's interpretation of a ct scan of the sinuses. The ethmoid sinuses are located between the eyes and diffuse disease refers to thickening of tissue within the entire sinus. The thickened tissue generally represents chronic sinus infection although polyps can also cause this. The radiologist sees masses in the nose that look like polyps.

How is an ethmoid mucocele removed surgically? Necessary to remove uncinate?

How is an ethmoid mucocele removed surgically? Necessary to remove uncinate?

Endoscopic surgery: An ethmoid mucocele means there is an air pocket or cell in your ethmoid sinus that is being expanded by mucus, progressively enlarging. It could cause pressure on the orbit, optic nerve, or skull base. To gain access to the ethmoid cavity in endoscopic sinus surgery requires removal of the uncinate, then draining of the mucocele. Instruments are used to grasp and remove diseased tissues.

What are the risks of an operation on the cribriform plate ethmoid region?

What are the risks of an operation on the cribriform plate ethmoid region?

CSF Leak, Meningitis: This is a delicate area and has connections between the nose and the brain meninges which serve as a barrier to outside infections (which can reach there via your nose). Any operation in this area would breaches this barrier. This can sometimes lead to a leak of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which can be a conduit for infection of the fluid and meninges (meningitis). But neurosurgeons are careful.

Mri showed sinusitis in the ethmoid and mucus in the sphenoid my eye is in pain?

Sphenoid sinusitis: Bear in mind that MRI usually exagerrates the findings on the sinuses and we usually need to get a ct scan of the sinuses. However acute sinusitis involving the sphenoid can involve severe headache, eye pain and even changes in your vision. You should see an ENT doctor right away for treatment which can be either with antibiotics and/or surgery.
