Anterior Ethmoid Sinuses

Summary Information: Anterior Ethmoid Sinuses

Anterior Ethmoid Sinuses: The anterior ethmoid sinuses are one of three types of ethmoid sinuses. They located in the skull in the anterior areas of the ethmoid labyrinth in the area between the upper nose and the eyes. Anterior ethmoid sinuses are cavities that are filled with air and are lined with mucus membranes. Their bony walls, called laminae, are delicate and thin and create the structure of the ethmoid air cells. The function of the anterior ethmoid sinuses is believed to include warming, moistening, and filtering inspired air and maximizing voice quality. They may also provide some protection from facial and head trauma and minimize the total weight of the skull.

The anterior ethmoid sinuses consist of variety of elements, including cilia and respiratory epithelium, mucus membranes and ostia. They drain into the nasal meati. Conditions that can afflict the anterior ethmoid sinuses include upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, respiratory allergies, smoking, sinus fractures, and trauma.
