Example text

R. E. Kountakis et al. H. Al-Bar et al. Core Messages • A thorough knowledge of frontal sinus anatomy is critical when performing basic endoscopic sinus surgical procedures. Every endoscopic sinus surgeon must be aware of all the normal, as well as the abnormal, variants that may exist. • The number and size of the paranasal sinuses are determined early during embryologic development. Disease processes during childhood or early adulthood may modify this anatomy and/or the relationship to the neighboring structures.

Al-Bar et al. The frontal sinuses develop within the frontal bones. Each bone remains separated by a vertical (sagittal) suture line that becomes ossified and eventually forms the frontal intersinus septum. Factors have not been elucidated in the formation of the frontal sinuses. Some authors have speculated that the adolescent growth phase may be stimulated by the process of mastication, different hormonal changes or even by climate and race. The right and left frontal sinuses develop independently.
