Ethmoid Sinuses: The ethmoid sinuses are sinuses located in the skull in the ethmoid labyrinth in the area between the upper nose and the eyes. 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 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 ethmoid sinuses consist of variety of elements, including cilia and respiratory epithelium, mucus membranes and ostia. They drain into the nasal meati. There are three types of ethmoid sinuses: the anterior ethmoid sinuses, posterior ethmoid sinuses, and middle ethmoid sinuses. Conditions that can afflict the ethmoid sinuses include upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, respiratory allergies, smoking, sinus fractures, and trauma.
