      GROSS ANATOMICAL PERSPECTIVE ON CLINICAL ANATOMY OF THE SPHENOIDAL SINUS (Abstract): The sphenoidal sinus cavity varies from case to case, on both sides, in the same individual and extensions of the sphenoid sinuses can also be found in neighboring bones. The aim of this study is to research, verify and clarify some aspects related to the anatomy and morphological variations of the air cavities of the sphenoid sinus. For this we performed this study both by dissection in the corpse and by examining a number of 86 cranial radiographs. From a structural point of view, there are three types of sphenoid sinuses: conchal (small sinus, separated from the Turkish saddle by a blade of spongy bone tissue), preselar (sinus located in the anterior part of the sphenoid body) and saddle (sinus lying back) saddle tuber). The anatomical variants of the sphenoid sinuses are of crucial importance in dental, oro-maxillo-facial surgery and ENT practice because they can radically influence the management of surgical procedures and can offer additional risks for patients. Further studies are needed to verify the possible associations between anatomical variants and the frequency of each variation in different populations.
