CRANIO MAXILLO FACIAL
Pathologies most common are tumors about soft tissues. Tumors can affect brain, nose cavity and paranasal sinus, external auditory meatus, middle ear, internal auditory meatus or oral cavity.
Benign pathology is quite wide in terms of: polipus at nose cavity, deviation from nasal septum, obstruction to lacrimal sac, tear or hole in the tympanic membrane, injuries of auditory ossicles, hearing loss, temporomandibular joint disorders, malformations involving the mandible and maxilla, not erupted wisdom teeth, implantology.
Neurocranium or “braincase”protects the brain, instead splancnocranium, which is the portion of the cranium that is derived from pharyngeal arches, includes all the bones of the face and protects the lacrimal sac, orbital cavity, nose cavity and oral cavity.
Tumors to rachis are generally metastasis of primitive tumors at tiroid, lung, breast, prostate. More frequenti s benign pathology such as discal hernia and epidural stenosis.
