What Is The Best Treatment For Infundibulum
Blockage of sinus: The extremely narrow space allowing air to enter the maxillary sinus (sinus under the eye) and allow drainage from that sinus is called the infundibulum. Opacification of that narrow channel is the first phase of acute inflammation of that sinus. If this blockage becomes chronic, a rhinologic surgeon can open that passage and allow resolution of problem. ...Read more
Funnel-shape anatomy: In medicine, the term infundibulum is an anatomical term, referring to an organ part with a cavity shaped like a funnel. For example, the end of the fallopian tube, next to the ovaries, is termed infundibulum. Another example is the outgrowth of the brain that becomes the pituitary gland. It is also the entrance into the maxillary sinus. ...Read more
If 1.5 t mra with conrast detects a tiny, normal infundibulum of less than 1.5 mm involving the left PCOM, can it detect <1.5 mm aneurysm if there one?
Border of normal: Most radiologists tell me that they cannot measure an aneurysm less than 2 mm, so this is on the border on detection. The 1.5T MRI is the standard magnetic field MRI.

Has anyone in your family had an aneurysm, or this an incidental finding? ...Read more

Can a cerebral infundibulum be dangerous. I was just diagnosed with two via angiogram and the doctor said they need to be monitored why?
Ask your doc, maybe?: Infundibula are funnel-shaped symmetrical enlargements that occur at the origins of cerebral arteries & are apparent on 7-25% of otherwise normal angiograms. (The word is Latin for "funnel.") An aneurysm can form at the site of one. This is EXTREMELY rare. Your doctor's just being prudent. I'm curious: Why didn't you ask YOUR DOCTOR this question, instead of some stranger on HealthTap? ...Read more
