Abstract

Many will agree that revision endoscopic frontal sinus surgery is one of the most difficult operations for the endoscopic surgeon. The fact that there exists an abundance of different technical operations to treat frontal sinus disease underscores the complexity and nature of its difficulty.Over the years, there has been a progression from external, obliterative procedures to endoscopic management of recurrent or persistent frontal sinus disease. Despite the change in techniques, the keys to successful revision frontal sinus surgery have remained proper patient selection, meticulous technique, a thorough knowledge of the anatomy, and a significant commitment to follow-up care from both the patient and physician.
