International assessment of inter- and intrarater reliability of the International Frontal Sinus Anatomy Classification system.

Summary of "International assessment of inter- and intrarater reliability of the International Frontal Sinus Anatomy Classification system."

Inconsistencies in the nomenclature of structures of the frontal sinus have impeded the development of a validated "reference standard" classification system that surgeons can reliably agree upon. The International Frontal Sinus Anatomy Classification (IFAC) system was developed as a consensus document, based on expert opinion, attempting to address this issue. The purposes of this study are to: establish the reliability of the IFAC as a tool for classifying cells in the frontal recess among an international group of rhinologists; and improve communication and teaching of frontal endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS).
