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.
