[Article in Italian]


In this paper, the Authors propose a new method of cephalometric visualization of adhaenoids, in order to verify the amount of them as cause of an obstructive pathology. In this evaluation, related to a group of 100 individuals, was found an inversely proportional relation between adhaenoid's volume and angolar value of FHBoPA angle.
