Abstract

Introduction: The maxillary sinuses are the largest paranasal sinuses in the vicinity of the teeth. The aim of this study is to better understand the status of the maxillary sinus before and after LeFort I surgery.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the spiral CT scan images of 22 patients with Lefort I osteotomy and maxillary impaction were evaluated. The volume of maxillary sinuses was measured before and after surgery by spiral CT scan. Calculation and measurement of the maxillary sinus volume was done using Siemens medical solution and Somatom emotion 16 multi-slice spiral CT scanner. The SPSS software was used for data analysis. Independent and paired t-tests and Pearson correlation coefficient were used. The level of significance was considered as 0.05.
Results: This study was conducted on 22 patients aged 18 to 34 years with an average age of 22.5 ± 4.2 years.
Of these patients, 8 (36.4%) were male and 14 (63.6%) were female. The results showed that the maxillary sinus volume on both the left and the right sides has changed after impaction compared to pre-impaction, and this difference is statistically significant (P<0.05). Also, the maxillary sinus volume in both the right and the left sides in men was greater than women, and this difference is statistically significant (P>0.05).
Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that the volume of maxillary sinuses after surgery has increased compared to that of the pre-surgery. The volume of maxillary sinus in men is also greater than women.
