The eustachian tube opens into the nasopharynx by passing along the posterior edge of the medial pterygoid plate. The lateral wing of the sphenoid sinus extends laterally below the maxillary nerve. (J) The frontal dura has been opened and the frontal lobes elevated to expose the olfactory and optic nerves and the internal carotid and anterior and middle cerebral arteries (1). , Tract. palatine bone medially and the body of the sphenoid bone above (Figs. 3, 6, 10, and 11). The fossa opens laterally through the pterygomaxillary fissure into the infratemporal fossa and medially through the sphenopalatine foramen to the nasal cavity.
The inferior concha is a separate bone attached to the maxilla. The middle and superior concha are appendages of the ethmoid bone. The carotid artery courses along the lateral margin of the sphenoid sinus. The prominence within the sphenoid sinus, formed by the superior orbital fissure, is located anterior to the intracavernous carotid, and the prominence overlying the maxillary nerve is located below the intracavernous carotid. (C) The middle and superior turbinates have been removed to expose the ostia of the maxillary and frontal sinuses.
