ANATOMY OF THE OSSEOUS UPPER HALF OF THE HUMAN NOSE
The outer framework of the upper half of the human nose is made up of an osseous outside casement; i. e., each lateral nasal wall is made up of the flared nasal process of the maxillary bone. Embryologically, the flared nasal process and the maxillary bone are one, and there are no sutures along the nasal base to be separated easily. The osseous roof of the upper half of the human nose is made up of the two nasal bones. The superior edges of these two bones are attached to the frontal bone, while the posterior borders rest on and are attached to the anterior borders of the nasal processes of the two maxillary bones. The median sutures of the two nasal bones form a definite V, or gable, with each other. The entire septum underlying the upper half of
