ethmoid +‎ -al

Examples

  • The warm sunlight gave him a lazy, comfortable, lie-around-all-morning-and-scratch-your-armpits feeling, but inside his nose the cilia were waving, the turbinates were knocking, and the spheno-ethmoidal recess was on red alert: by Woden's honey pots, what a scent!

    La insistencia de Jürgen Fauth

  • Can I check his zygomatic, ethmoidal, and nasal bones?

    Roger I. Abrams: CSI - Clemens

  • Interested not in the least by what occurs when a crushed ethmoidal sinus under the eye severs the olfactory nerve, Table 26 received a clinical lesson on the matter anyway.

    Body of Knowledge

  • The trabeculæ cranii (Fig. 69) are two curved bars of cartilage which embrace the hypophysis cerebri; their posterior ends soon unite with the basilar plate, while their anterior ends join to form the ethmoidal plate, which extends forward between the fore-brain and the olfactory pits.

  • The anterior forms the ethmoidal labyrinth and the lateral and alar cartilages of the nose; the middle gives rise to the small wing of the sphenoid, while from the posterior the great wing and lateral pterygoid plate of the sphenoid are developed (Figs. 70, 71).

    II. Osteology. 1. Development of the Skeleton

  • The median part of the ethmoidal plate forms the bony and cartilaginous parts of the nasal septum.

    II. Osteology. 1. Development of the Skeleton

  • Those in the anterior fossa are the anterior meningeal branches of the anterior and posterior ethmoidal and internal carotid, and a branch from the middle meningeal.

    IX. Neurology. 4g. The Meninges of the Brain and Medulla Spinalis

  • Farther back in the middle line is the ethmoidal spine, bounded behind by a slight elevation separating two shallow longitudinal grooves which support the olfactory lobes.

    II. Osteology. 5d. The Interior of the Skull

  • Immediately above this is a well-marked horizontal ridge, the conchal crest, for articulation with the inferior nasal concha; still higher is a second broad, shallow depression, which forms part of the middle meatus, and is limited above by a horizontal crest less prominent than the inferior, the ethmoidal crest, for articulation with the middle nasal concha.

    II. Osteology. 5b. 5. The Palatine Bone

  • In some cases the air cell opens on this surface of the bone and then communicates with the posterior ethmoidal cells.
