The mucoperiosteal flap is elevated from canine fossa
to the infraorbital nerve, avoiding injuring the nerve.
A right sided sublabial incision was taken and a bony window was created above the canine fossa
Scanes Spicer's name never gained association with the similar procedure that his colleagues in the United States and France described) involved a sublabial transantral approach to the maxillary sinus, with trephination of the sinus through the antrum near the canine fossa
INTRODUCTION: The Caldwell-Luc operation was first described in the late 19th century as a technique to remove infection and diseased mucosa from the maxillary sinus via the canine fossa
, while creating intranasal counter drainage through the inferior meatus.
The lesion was subsequently removed with powered instrumentation via an inferior meatal approach, with observation through a telescope passed via the canine fossa
Another way to biopsy such a mass is via the canine fossa
approach as described by Draf  and Stammberger.
If symptoms and findings persist, anterior rhinoscopy via a canine fossa
or a mini-Caldwell-Luc approach should be performed and pathology should be removed.
