Case Rep Otolaryngol 2022 14;2022:7232588. Epub 2022 May 14.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Washington University in Saint. Louis, School of Medicine, St Louis, MO 63110, USA.

Utilization of frontal balloon sinuplasty in pediatric complicated acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) is demonstrated to be a safe and expedient alternative to other procedures such as trephination or functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) in this case series. We performed a retrospective review of six pediatric cases of frontal balloon sinuplasty for ARS with intracranial complications at a tertiary academic center. Patients underwent unilateral ( = 5) or bilateral dilation ( = 1) in addition to functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) including anterior ethmoidectomy ( = 5) and maxillary antrostomy ( = 6).
