Managing the frontal sinus in the endoscopic age: has the endoscope changed the algorithm?


ABSTRACT: Management of fractures involving the frontal sinus seems to be more complex than merely obtaining an ideal reduction of the bony injuries. Multiple articles on the management of these fractures suggest that a great deal of controversy persists despite many years of surgical experience. The question posed in this article is whether or not the advent of endoscopic approaches has changed or should change the approaches/algorithms used in the management of these challenging fractures. It is the conclusion of these authors that endoscopic techniques can indeed allow us to change the algorithm for management of frontal sinus trauma. New algorithms are proposed that should provide guidance to craniomaxillofacial surgeons treating these injuries in the endoscopic age.
