Disease relevance of Cranial Fossa, Anterior


High impact information on Cranial Fossa, Anterior

  • Both patients had midline anterior cranial fossa floor (cribriform plate/fovea ethmoidalis) dural-bone defects with arachnoid herniation with or without brain herniation into the upper part of the nasal cavity on MRI, which was subsequently confirmed surgically [2].
  • The elevation of dura from the anterior cranial fossa and cribriform area may result in small dural tears, CSF leak and/or CNS infections [3].
  • The sphenoid angle and the altitudes of the highest elevation of the endofrontal eminence (cranial base over the orbital roof in the anterior cranial fossa) and the middle point of the sphenoid planum, measured according to the Frankfort horizontal, were analysed using classical cephalometric and morphometric analysis [4].
  • Approximately 25 axial scans, parallel to the floor of the anterior cranial fossa, were performed on each subject; four to five coronal CT scans were also added [5].
