For decades the osteoplastic flap with frontal sinus obliteration was the preferred procedure for recalcitrant frontal sinusitis. In an attempt to preserve the frontal sinus, we have been performing the endoscopic modified Lothrop procedure (EMLP) for the past 10 years with generally good results. In this review we will describe the rationale for the use of this technique. We will outline the details of the technique and review our experience and that of others indicating an overall success rate of 70% to 90% with minimal complications.
