Abstract

Frontal sinus fracture mismanagement can lead to significant morbidity and can be life threatening. Treatment paradigms for frontal sinus fractures are continuing to evolve. Past surgical modalities that removed the anterior bony frontal surface resulted in life-long disfiguring defects and have been replaced with the advent of modern endoscopic sinus surgery and imaging techniques. New treatment paradigms for the management of frontal sinus trauma reflect these advances.
