Abstract :

AIM: To interpret bilateral morphological disparities &morphometric measurements of the Foramen ovalein human adult skulls. Material and methods: Study was carried out in 200 skulls (unknown sex) of Indian origin.Differences in Shape of the foramen were noted&Digital vernier callipers is utilised to appreciate Anteroposterior &mediolateral diameters of both sides from which Areas wereobtained& evaluated statistically. RESULTS: The classic shape of the foramen ovale in majority of thecraniais OVAL 53% and 54% followed by ALMOND in 13% & 12%, ROUND in 11% &12% on right and left sides respectively.Bony outgrowths were noticed.Mean Dimensions for the right side (APD, TD& AREA) were 6.68+ 1.58mm, 4.07+0.82mm,21.22+ 6.05mm and the left side were 6.15+ 1.32mm,3.86+ 0.74mm ,18.71+ 5.04mm respectively CONCLUSION: Anatomical familiarity of foramen ovale is crucial; as various diagnostic and invasive surgical approaches are handled via foramen ovale including biopsy of the deep lesions (that would otherwise require craniotomy or open surgical biopsy having high risk of morbidity).Consequently the present study was worthwhile with regard to diagnostic & surgical significance of foramen ovale
