Disease relevance of Frontal Sinus


High impact information on Frontal Sinus

  • Finally, in the midline the frontal sinus never reached more than 4 cm above the nasion [6].
  • In vivo model for frontal sinus and calvarial bone defect obliteration with bioactive glass S53P4 and hydroxyapatite [7].
  • Based upon these osteogenic qualities, the ease of shaping the composite, and the lack of infection in the frontal sinus region, it is concluded that this substance could be a valuable new material for human cranioplasty [8].
  • BACKGROUND: Frontal recess anatomy can be very complex, with accessory cells such as frontal, agger nasi, and intersinus septal cells encroaching on the frontal recess and possibly contributing to obstruction of the frontal sinus [9].
  • BACKGROUND: Classic approaches to frontal sinus fracture involve bicoronal or direct forehead incisions [10].

Associations of Frontal Sinus with chemical compounds

  • METHODS: Fourteen patients with severely comminuted frontal sinus fractures were treated with titanium mesh from 1994 to 1999 [20].
  • Collision tumor of the frontal sinus: evidence of prior intrasinus instillation of thorotrast [21].
  • RESULTS: Clotrimazole solution (1%) was infused during a 1-hour period via catheters surgically placed in the frontal sinus and nose (27 dogs) and via nonsurgically placed catheters in the nose (18) [22].
  • The highest risk of implant infection comes from reconstruction in the area of the frontal sinus, immediately beneath coronal incisions, and in patients who receive postoperative radiation treatment [23].
  • Plaster of paris as an alloplastic implant in the frontal sinus [15].

Gene context of Frontal Sinus

  • We reported the superior attachment sites of the uncinate process, the diameter of the frontal sinus ostium, and prevalence of the agger nasi cells [24].
  • Development of the frontal sinus and glabellar morphology after frontocranial remodeling for craniosynostosis in infancy [25].
  • Finally, comminuted, displaced anterior and posterior table fractures, especially those with persistent CSF leakage and associated nasofrontal duct involvement, are best handled with frontal sinus cranialization [26].
  • CONCLUSION: Image-guided OFS results in a confident and accurate entry into the frontal sinus [27].
  • Chordoma of the frontal sinus [28].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Frontal Sinus

  • OBJECTIVE: To test the efficacy of a simple technique of frontal sinus obliteration during low frontal craniotomy using hydroxyapatite cement instead of more traditional methods, such as pericranial flaps, free muscle or adipose grafts, lumbar drainage, or fibrin glue [16].
  • INTERVENTION: After a subtotal Le Fort II osteotomy, tension wires were fixed to the zygomatic buttresses and frontal sinus walls by way of titanium miniplates and mesh and connected to a rigid external distractor [29].
