Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology , 2013,
Abstract: Arela o anat mica entre seio maxilar e ducto lacrimonasal adquiriu maior importancia com o advento das microcirugias e cirurgias nasossinusais assistidas por endoscopia e pelo crescente uso da endoscopia nasal na realiza o das meatotomias médias e dacriocistorrinostomiastransnasais. N o foram encontrados relatos de classifica o do seio maxilar quanto ao seu recesso lacrimal, tampouco sua frequência. OBJETIVO: Avaliar a frequência do recesso lacrimal do seio maxilar em pe as anat micas dissecadas. MéTODO: Foram avaliadas 31 partes de hemicabe as de cadáveres. Procedeu-se à dissec o da área correspondente ao ter o médio da face, por acesso lateral, para que se pudesse observar a posi o da por o mais lateral do ducto lacrimonasal em rela o ao seio maxilar. Os seios maxilares foram avaliados, por dois examinadores simultaneamente, chegando ao consenso do tipo de ducto lacrimonasal. RESULTADOS: Foram encontrados 18 seios maxilares do tipo lateral (58,1%) e 13 do tipo anterior (41,9%). A diferen a entre a frequência de seios maxilares do tipo anterior nos lados direito (35,7%) e esquerdo (47,1%) n o mostrou significancia estatística (p = 0,524). CONCLUS O: Observou-se frequência de 41,9% de recessos lacrimais nos seios maxilares. The anatomical relation between the maxillary sinus and the nasolacrimal duct has gained greater importance with the advent of microsurgeries and endoscopic-assisted sinonasal procedures, and the growing use of endonasal surgery to perform middle meatus procedures and transnasal dacryocystorhinostomy. We did not find reports on maxillary sinus classification concerning its lacrimal recess, nor how often it is found. OBJECTIVE: To assess how frequent the lacrimal recess can be found in the maxillary sinuses of dissected anatomical specimens. METHOD: We assessed 31 half-heads from cadavers. We dissected the area corresponding to the middle third of the face, by lateral access so as to be able to observe the most lateral portion of the nasolacrimal duct vis-à-vis the maxillary sinus.The maxillary sinuses were assessed by two examiners simultaneously, getting to a consensus in relation to the type of nasolacrimal duct. RESULTS: We assessed 18 maxillary sinuses of the lateral type (58.1%) and 13 anterior sinuses (41.9%). The difference in frequency of the anterior type of maxillary type of the right side (35.7%) and left (47.1%) did not have statistical significance (p = 0.524). CONCLUSION: We found a frequency of 41.9% of lacrimal recesses in the maxillary sinuses.
