Dehiscent Infraorbital Nerve

Survey

Highlights:

  • Demonstrated a dehiscent infraorbital nerve seen along the roof of the maxillary sinus at time of surgery

Keep in Mind/Things to Remember:

  • In such cases, many times it is observed that a dehiscent nerve is susceptible to injury during sinus surgery. This happens particularly when the disease within the sinus is removed with a microdebrider or curette.
