Endoscopic frontal sinus surgery is frequently complicated by post-operative stenosis and obstruction of the frontal sinus outflow tract, resulting in recurrent disease. Frontal sinus stents may help prevent re-occlusion of the frontal neo-ostia.
This paper presents a simple and cost-effective approach to frontal sinus stenting using modified Silastic nasal splints.
The current technique provides an effective, reliable and inexpensive method for achieving post-operative frontal sinus outflow tract patency.
