Abstract

© 2017, Association of Otolaryngologists of India. Arteries that supply the nasal septum and the lateral nasal wall include vessels that originate from the external carotid artery and from the internal carotid artery. A variety of local endonasal pedicle flaps can be used in different anatomical areas for endoscopic skull base reconstruction. The main flaps are based on terminal branches of the sphenopalatine artery and on anterior ethmoidal artery. This study will describe the anatomy of these vessels and their relationship with the main flaps.
