Vidian neurectomy is a surgical procedure applied to different pathological conditions, including chronic rhinitis and sphenopalatine neuralgia. The choice of the correct surgical approach depends upon the possible protrusion of Vidian nerve into the sphenoid sinuses. The present study analyzes the possible relationship between protrusion of Vidian nerve and volume of sphenoid sinuses.
