Study of foramen Vesalius and its clinical implications

Foramen Vesalius also called as the emissary sphenoidal foramen is an inconstant foramen located anteromedial to the foramen ovale opening near the scaphoid fossa. An emissary vein passes through this foramen and communicates with the cavernous sinus. The purpose of this study is to evaluate to evaluate the incidence of the foramen Vesalius in dry human skulls and to analysis its clinical significance. The study sample consists of 50 dry human skulls available from the department of anatomy at Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals.the incidence of foramen Vesalius will be noted. Anatomical variations of foramen Vesalius can be explained due to developmental reasons. The detailed anatomical structure is required in clinical situations and surgery involving this foramen and the emissary veins passing through it.
