Several surgical approaches to the frontal sinus have been described, including frontal sinusotomy, endoscopic endonasal sinusotomy, and various combined approaches that involve both endoscopic techniques and frontal sinus trephination (FST).
Combined endoscopic intranasal and external frontal sinusotomy.
Citardi will also present "Frontal Sinus Anatomy and Endoscopic Frontal Sinusotomy
," "Middle Turbinate Management," "Situations and Solutions in Endoscopic Sinus Surgery," "Endoscopic Sinonasal Neoplasia Management" and "The Future of Rhinologic Surgery" on Thursday, January 19.
The patient underwent an endoscopic left modified medial maxillectomy and left frontal sinusotomy
the pterygopalatine or infratemporal part) was reached via a wide maxillary sinusotomy
Recently, Kutluhan et al reported the effect of uncinectomy without sinusotomy
and natural ostial dilation on maxillary sinus ventilation in chronic rhinosinusitis.
A total left ethmoidectomy and maxillary sinusotomy
were carried out, and the mucocele was removed (figure, C).
A right powered endoscopic sphenoid sinusotomy
was performed with a 0[degrees] telescope and a microdebrider (figure, D).
To avoid long-term complications, adequate drainage and sinusotomy
for postoperative follow-up are recommended.
We also performed bilateral revision anterior and posterior ethmoidectomies, a right frontal sinusotomy
, and a reduction of the inferior turbinates.
The mini-osteoplastic frontal sinusotomy
provided direct access and wide exposure to the lesion.
Symptomatic concha bullosa of the superior turbinate with sphenoid sinusitis will respond to a partial superior turbinectomy combined with sphenoid sinusotomy
