In vivo 3D analysis of the adipose tissue in the orbital apex and the compartments of the parasellar region.

As tissue dissections carried out on formaldehyde-fixed anatomical specimens demonstrate, the parasellar region (PSR), traditionally referred to as the cavernous sinus, is composed of three distinct compartments: orbital, pterygopalatine, and lateral sellar. The aim of our study was to identify and measure these compartments in the living and to describe the topography of their adipose body tissues. For this purpose data sets of 35 patients, who had undergone thin-section multislice computed tomography (CT), were examined using 3D-reconstruction software. The pterygopalatine and orbital compartments of the PSR could be identified in the images by their adipose bodies. We provide more exacting measurements of their size than have been presented in earlier studies. Furthermore, we include data about the uni- and bilateral presence of the single compartments and analyze the topography of the adipose tissue bodies in the orbital apex region. Our quantitative data and topographical descriptions confirm the compartmentalization concept of the PSR, allow for correct interpretation of CT scans of the orbital apex and anterior PSR, and provide baseline information for individual planning of surgical and radiological interventions.[1]
