Middle turbinate, Concha Bullosa, Uncinate process, Agger Nasi cells, Haller cells and Posterior ethmoids showed very good agreement.
3 cm, acuminate and pungent at the apex, armed with yellowish curved antrorse and uncinate spines; primary branches one per node, ascendent to divaricate, sessile, 6-11.
The patient was taken to surgery, where--after removal of the uncinate process on the left side--a well-defined opening was found in the anterior wall of the ethmoid bulla leading into the ethmoid sinus (figure, G).
OPERATIVE TECHNIQUE: Nasal cavity was packed with 4% xylocaine with adrenaline, prior to surgery; infiltration given with 2% xylocaine with adrenaline, 1X1cm incision was given anterior to uncinate process and flap elevated, lacrimal bone overlying the sac was removed with kerrisons punch forceps, lacrimal sac visualized and medial wall of sac exposed and the same was incised, mucopurulent or purulent discharge came out and medial wall of sac was removed.
In those patients whose disease persists--without any signs of scarring, recirculation, retained uncinate processes, or otherwise incomplete surgery--the CL procedure has proven to be effective.
9 x 4 mm, membranaceous, greenish except for the hyaline margins, obscurely and irregularly spinulose toward apex, spines uncinate, carinate, nerved, sparsely and coarsely white-lepidote toward apex to glabrescent, slightly exceeding the ovary; flowers 24-26 mm long (with extended petals), sessile or nearly so with a inconspicuous pedicel ca.
1) Pancreatic Carcinoma: The most common site of pancreatic carcinoma in our study was head and uncinate process (87.
We report the case of a 66-year-old man who presented with symptoms compatible with uncinate seizures.
The mucosa of the lateral nasal wall was infiltrated with 2cc of 2% xylocaine with 1:2,00,000 adrenaline just anterior to the uncinate process and anterior to the attachment of the middle turbinate and into the middle turbinate.
Completion of the dissection resulted in marked widening of the middle meatus (figure, D), giving access to the uncinate process, which was then removed prior to a left middle meatal antrostomy.
5 mm wide at the base, 4-9 mm apart, the basal ones nearly straight, the upper ones distinctly uncinate, antrorse.
Using a sickle knife, a vertical mucosal incision is made 8 mm anterior from the attachment of uncinate process at the lateral nasal wall and it is extended from just above the anterior attachment of the middle turbinate to the attachment of the inferior turbinate.
