The anatomy of structures surrounding the frontal sinus drainage pathway (FSDP) is extremely complex and challenging for endoscopic sinus surgeons. The anatomical nomenclature of this area reflects this complexity and lack of agreement regarding anatomical variants of this region is present in the literature. This work presents a new classification system of the air spaces surrounding the FSDP, called the agger-bullar classification (ABC), and compares it with the most widely used anatomical classification of the frontoethmoidal region, the modified Bent and Kuhn classification (MBKC).

Abstract

The anatomy of structures surrounding the frontal sinus drainage pathway (FSDP) is extremely complex and challenging for endoscopic sinus surgeons. The anatomical nomenclature of this area reflects this complexity and lack of agreement regarding anatomical variants of this region is present in the literature. This work presents a new classification system of the air spaces surrounding the FSDP, called the agger-bullar classification (ABC), and compares it with the most widely used anatomical classification of the frontoethmoidal region, the modified Bent and Kuhn classification (MBKC).
