Single-stage strategy for management of anterior table frontal sinus fractures involving the frontal sinus outflow tract

Abstract

Treatment of frontal sinus fractures has been controversial for years. The aim of treatment, besides cosmetic restoration, is to create a “safe” sinus especially in those with evidence of injury to the frontal sinus outflow tract. Early and late complications include acute and chronic sinusitis, mucocoele and mucopyocoele formation, brain abscess and osteomyelitis. Osteoplastic flap with frontal sinus obliteration or cranialisation is most commonly performed. With the advent of modern endoscopic and advanced imaging techniques, endoscopic sinus surgery for treatment of diseases of the frontal sinus is ever increasing. In this paper, we describe our successful experience using a single-stage, combined open and transnasal endoscopic technique in management of patients with anterior table frontal sinus fractures involving the frontal sinus outflow tract.
