USC Caruso Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery / Treatments / Lothrop Procedure (Endoscopic Modified Lothrop)

The Lothrop procedure is a highly subspecialized, complex surgery reserved for the most severe cases of chronic rhinosinusitis affecting the frontal sinuses. This procedure involves endoscopic drilling through the bone that separates the frontal sinuses creating a large opening between frontal sinuses and the nasal cavity. This surgery is reserved for severe recalcitrant chronic sinusitis after failures of traditional endoscopic approaches, for patients with tumors in the frontal sinus and for severe polyposis, Samter’s triad (polyps, asthma, aspirin sensitivity), allergic fungal sinusitis and extensive mucoceles.
