Lateral wall of left nasal fossa dissected
The left middle and superior conchae have been cut away and ethmoidal air cells widely opened. A window has been cut through the inferior concha to reveal the position of the nasal opening of the nasolacrimal canal (24). The specimen is viewed from the right side.

2 . Ethmoidal cells (posterior)
3 . Sphenoid sinus left
4 . Line of attachment of superior nasal concha
5 . Superior nasal meatus
6 . Sphenopalatine foramen
7 . Upper pointer: Line of attachment of middle nasal concha Lower pointer: Middle nasal meatus
