Endoscopic resection of forehead osteomas: Technical notes.
Ann Chir Plast Esthet. 2020 Feb; 65(1):91-99.AC

Abstract

INTRODUCTION

Forehead osteoma is an uncommon benign bone tumor that causes cosmetic disfigurement and occasional pain. Traditional excision directly over the lesion creates a visible scar on the forehead.

PROCEDURE

We describe a method of endoscopic resection of the forehead osteoma, via incisions within the hairline. The access incision was hidden behind the frontal hairline and the dissection plane went in the subperiosteal layer. The injury of the nerve branch and vessel can be easily avoided and endorsed by manipulating the endoscope.

CONCLUSION

Aesthetic considerations are important features in the craniomaxillofacial region. Especially for patients who are not willing to accept the risk of a prominent forehead scar. Endoscopic resection of forehead osteomas might be a useful tool in forehead osteoma resections. It might be an alternative tool in an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon's and in a Plastic Surgeon's repertoire.
