    Approach to Frontal Sinus Outflow Tract Injury.
    Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Mar 25;18(1):1-4. Epub 2017 Mar 25.
    Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seongnam, Korea.
    Frontal sinus outflow tract (FSOT) injury may occur in cases of frontal sinus fractures and nasoethmoid orbital fractures. Since the FSOT is lined with mucosa that is responsible for the path from the frontal sinus to the nasal cavity, an untreated injury may lead to complications such as mucocele formation or chronic frontal sinusitis. Therefore, evaluation of FSOT is of clinical significance, with FSOT being diagnosed mostly by computed tomography or intraoperative dye. Read More

    Secondary Reconstruction of Frontal Sinus Fracture.
    Arch Craniofac Surg 2016 Sep 23;17(3):103-110. Epub 2016 Sep 23.
    Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Gachon University Gil Medical Center, Incheon, Korea.
    Fractures of frontal sinus account for 5%-12% of all fractures of facial skeleton. Inadequately treated frontal sinus injuries may result in malposition of sinus structures, as well as subsequent distortion of the overlying soft tissue. Such inappropriate treatment can result in aesthetic complaints (contour deformity) as well as medical complications (recurrent sinusitis, mucocele or mucopyocele, osteomyelitis of the frontal bone, meningitis, encephalitis, brain abscess or thrombosis of the cavernous sinus) with potentially fatal outcomes.

    Fronto-orbital mucocele with intracranial extension: a case report.
    J Surg Case Rep 2017 Jun 14;2017(6):rjx107. Epub 2017 Jun 14.
    Department of Neurosurgery, Anthea Hospital, Bari, Italy.
    Frontal sinus mucoceles are benign, pseudocystic lesion deriving from the obliteration of the sinus ostium, resulting in a continuous mucous accumulation. The growing process of a mucocele leads to a progressive enlargement of the sinus cavity, thickening and eroding its bony walls up to invading the surrounding tissues. The surgical procedure through an endoscopic endonasal approach is the current treatment option for such conditions, but in cases with an extensive bone erosion and intracranial or intraorbital extension, a transcranial approach should be preferred.

    Minimally invasive appendectomy for resection of appendiceal mucocele: Case series and review of the literature.
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2017 29;37:13-16. Epub 2017 May 29.
    Department of Gastrointestinal Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, Tampa, FL, 33612, USA. Electronic address:
    Introduction: Appendiceal mucoceles encompass neoplastic and non-neoplastic causes of a distended Appendix filled with mucus. Appendectomy is recommended when an appendiceal mucocele is identified, incidentally or otherwise, in the event it is secondary to a malignancy. For an intact mucocele, it is critically important to avoid rupturing the mucocele during resection, as rupture of a neoplastic mucocele can result in pseudomyxoma peritonei, or mucin deposits in the peritoneum, which is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality.
