Abstract

Treatment of patients with severe chronic and recurrent forms of frontal sinusitis, often caused by scarring as a result of repeated interventions in the frontal sinuses, is a difficult task. In such cases, for adequate drainage of the frontal sinus and ensuring stable patency of the nasolabial anastomosis, an endoscopic extended frontotomy can be the choice operation, the possibility of which certainly depends on the experience of the surgeon, anatomical features of the structure of the frontal sinus and the nature of the pathological process. The article shows the effectiveness of surgical treatment of chronic purulent frontal sinusitis that developed after 5 interventions on the paranasal sinuses with external and combined access, accompanied by the development of a fistulous passage of the anterior wall of the frontal sinus. For wide drainage of the frontal sinus and stable preservation of patency of the nasolabial fistula, the patient underwent extended endoscopic frontotomy (Draf III operation according to the international classification).
