Surgical Correlation


View of the lateral recess. The bone has been partially removed. The maxillary nerve runs from middle fossa to pterygopalatine fossa. The maxillary strut separates V2 from superior orbital fissure (SOF). V3 runs inferiorly through foramen ovale. The mandibular strut separates V3 from vidian nerve and foramen lacerum. (Image courtesy of JC Fernandez-Miranda)
