Frontal sinus fractures with minimal displacement have little risk of long-term complications (esthetic or functional). Observation is a viable treatment option. However, patients must be educated regarding the signs and symptoms of frontal sinusitis and mucocele formation. These include:
Mucopurulent nasal drainage
Orbital pain, swelling, erythema
2. Aftercare for observation
Observation implies close follow-up. For aftercare and rehabilitation following observation, please refer to your local protocol.
