Endoscopic resection of osteoma of the forehead.

Abstract

We report the one-year follow-up of a series of endoscopic removal of osteomas of the forehead to assess the feasibility of the technique, its functional results, and the satisfaction of the patients. Osteomas were resected in five patients (two women, three men, mean age 40 years, range 30 to 55) using an endoscopic technique. All operations were successful and did not require conversion to open operation. Operating time was 20 to 40 minutes (mean 30 minutes). All patients were discharged on the day of operation. There were no postoperative complications (haematoma, nerve injury, or infection), and no recurrence at the one-year follow-up visit. All patients were satisfied with the outcome and particularly with the cosmetic result. This series confirms the surgical feasibility of removal of osteomas of the forehead and its excellent outcome in functional results and patients' satisfaction. Absence of extensive or visible scars, non-traumatic dissection, and magnification of anatomical structures are its most obvious advantages.
