In a review of literature performed by Mendenhall et al14 complications with lateral rhinotomy approach were facial scarring, paresthesias and epiphora were 100%, 11% and 9 % respectively at Hopital Lariboisiere between 1985 and 1996 in a total of 44 patients.
Some cases of huge rhinoliths may require lateral rhinotomy.
4 A range of surgical approaches have been described ranging historically from transpalatal resections to open procedures with lateral rhinotomy, Weber-Ferguson or mid-face degloving, and, more recently, endoscopic resections.
A Weber-Fergusson lateral rhinotomy with total excision of the mass by craniofacial approach was performed 3 months after biopsy.
Patient underwent wide excision by lateral rhinotomy approach as the tumour was localised.
9) For tumors that involve the nasal fosse and/or the pterygopalatine fosse, a lateral rhinotomy with resection of the medial antral wall is appropriate.
1] The Endoscopic-assisted intranasal excision took the second position followed by Lateral Rhinotomy, Caldwell-Luc operation, Weber-Ferguson and simple external excision in descending order.
The patient underwent a right lateral rhinotomy with wide local excision and primary closure of the right medial canthal soft tissues.
Various surgical techniques like lateral rhinotomy, external ethmoidectomy, midfacial degloving, Caldwell-Luc approach and medial maxillectomy can be employed for the treatment depending upon the size and extent of the tumour.
The patient was counseled about endoscopic removal of the mass and a possible lateral rhinotomy or medial maxillectomy.
Patient was taken up for surgery under general anesthesia through lateral rhinotomy approach, lateral rhinotomy incision is given on (R) side skin flaps elevated to expose the nasal cavity, the ala retracted, single grayish white globular mass attached to septum and lateral wall of the (R) nasal cavity, mobilized from all the sides and removed in toto and sent for HPE.
For lesions that involve the ethmoid sinuses, a lateral rhinotomy approach is suitable.
