Nasoethmoid-orbital (NEO) fractures are typically resulted by a drastic, forceful blow to the central aspect of the head and nose, associated injuries to adjacent structures occur and involve the midface, anterior cranial fossa and the eye. Dislocated bony parts of the nose may be impacted into the intraorbital region and lead to severe complications: cerebrospinal fluid leak, optic nerve lesion, anosmy, telecanthus and diplopy. In the complex management of the craniofacial lesions, a cooperative team-work of maxillofacial surgeon, neurosurgeon, otolaryngologist and ophthalmologist is required...

Sphenoidotomy can be done under the microscopic view, endoscopic techniques and even with headlight. This approach is a safe and effective alternative to traditional or endoscopic exposures to the sella.

Traumatic anosmy can be found after any traumatism of the skull, whatever its impact and intensity. A long loss of consciousness or a heavy post-commotionnal syndrom can increase a traumatic anosmy.

The suppression of a traumatic anosmy can happen, but the published statistics on this matter seem a little too optimistic. With regard to stimulators, the rate is far too high than it is usually accepted...
