Abstract

The objective of the study was to estimate the normal upper and lower limit cut-off value of the different dimensions of maxillary and frontal sinuses, and also to determine the influence of gender on the obtained variables and to observe the effect of nasal septal deviation on maxillary sinus. The observational study was carried out and a total of 60 samples were collected from both males and females with the age group range from 20-50 years. Different dimensions of maxillary and frontal sinuses were measured and the volume was calculated. The mean of all the measured parameters in right and left maxillary sinus and frontal sinus shows the higher value in males as compared to females. The volumes of maxillary and frontal sinuses of both sides were significantly greater in males than females. All the measured dimensions were larger in males and also the volume of maxillary sinus was found to be larger in males. This study also showed that there was no effect of nasal septal deviation on the volume of maxillary sinus.
