Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Frontal sinus fracture management is evolving. This article will highlight recent literature and provide an evidence-based algorithm in the contemporary management of frontal sinus fractures. RECENT FINDINGS: The role of transnasal endoscopic treatment of frontal sinus fractures has expanded to include fracture reduction and posterior table reconstruction. Evidence continues to support the safety of nonoperative management in select frontal sinus outflow tract fractures. SUMMARY: The management of frontal sinus fractures with frontal sinus outflow tract injury continues to evolve with a trend toward observation and minimally invasive approaches. Restoration of the frontal sinus outflow tracts with transnasal endoscopic techniques is being used increasingly in the acute and delayed setting. For severe fractures, the role of conservative treatment paradigms requires further research.
