PURPOSE: Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is a well-established treatment for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). However, ESS for frontal sinusitis remains complicated and challenging. The aim of this study was to identify the relationship between residual frontal recess cells and primary ESS failure in the frontal sinus. METHODS: We prospectively collected information on 214 sides of 129 patients with CRS who underwent standard ESS from June 2010 to May 2011. To identify risk factors, we retrospectively analyzed clinical data and computed tomography (CT) images before and 3 months after surgery...

Pott's puffy tumour (PPT) is characterised by a subperiosteal abscess associated with osteomyelitis of the frontal bone-a rare complication of frontal sinusitis, more common in the paediatric population. We describe a case mimicking PPT, where abscess extension was facilitated by previous surgery. Usually patients with PPT would be systemically unwell, but our patient, a 63-year-old Caucasian man, was systemically well with a large swelling of his forehead. A CT was performed to evaluate possible intracranial and intracerebral complications such as epidural, subdural and brain abscesses...

Intracranial abscess is one of the most serious complications of frontal sinusitis, particularly among adolescents, even in the absence of odontogenic infection. Polymicrobial infections due to anaerobes are common. Because antibiotic therapy alone is usually ineffective, early endoscopic sinus surgery is the key for infection control and good clinical outcomes.

Endoscopic endonasal approaches (EEA) have gained popularity and acceptance in skull base surgery over the last two decades. So-called expanded EEA allow access in the sagittal plane from the frontal sinus to the odontoid process. The endoscopic endonasal transclival approach allows a unique trajectory into the midline clivus and skull base that is unachievable from traditional craniotomy approaches to lesions such as chondrosarcomas, chordomas, and posterior fossa meningiomas. In this review, we will assess the benefits and drawbacks to using an endoscopic endonasal approach versus transcranial approach to these challenging lesions, assess the anatomical limits of endoscopic endonasal transclival surgery, and discuss the published literature on the topic...

Introduction  Skull base lesions in children and adolescents are rare, and comprise only 5.6% of all skull base surgery. Anterior skull base lesions dominate, averaging slightly more than 50% of the cases. Until recently, surgery of the anterior skull base was dominated by open procedures and endoscopic skull base surgery was reserved for benign pathologies. Endoscopic skull base surgery is gradually gaining popularity. In spite of that, open skull base surgery is still considered the "gold standard" for the treatment of anterior skull base lesions, and it is the preferred approach in selected cases...

RATIONALE: Inverted papilloma (IP) is a benign tumor that should be monitored carefully because it frequently recurs and has the potential to become malignant. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of a 59-year-old woman who presented with a mass which had been found incidentally on positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET CT). DIAGNOSES: Using endoscopy and CT, the preoperative diagnosis was inverted papilloma. PET CT showed a mass with hot uptake in the left ethmoid and frontal sinus (maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) = 7...
