Brief Summary:
We propose a randomized, single-blinded, prospective trial in order to evaluate the efficacy of the Cook Biodesign ENT Repair graft in improving outcomes after the Draf III or Endoscopic Modified Lothrop procedure. The Cook Biodesign ENT Repair graft is a porcine intestinal submucosal xenograft which has been FDA approved for use as an adjunct to natural healing process in the sinonasal cavity. The Draf III or Endoscopic Modified Lothrop involved creating a large unified drainage pathway for refractory frontal sinusitis. After the procedure is completed, there is exposed bone along the frontal beak region which can become a nidus for inflammation, crusting and eventual scarring, leading to stenosis or even complete blockage of the frontal sinuses. The Cook Biodesign will be used to cover this exposed bone in order to potentially reduce the inflammation, crusting and scarring and possibly improve outcomes.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Control
Subjects within the control arm will undergo the Draf III/Endoscopic Modified Lothrop procedure to address their sinus disease. At the end of the procedure, no Cook Biodesign Porcine intestinal submucosal graft will be used to cover the operative site. Light nasal packing will be placed in the nasal cavity for hemostasis. No placebo will be utilized.
Experimental: Cook Biodesign
Subjects within the experimental group will undergo the Draf III/Endoscopic Modified Lothrop procedure to address their sinus disease. At the end of the procedure, a small piece of Cook Biodesign porcine intestinal submucosal xenograft will be used to cover the exposed bone of the operative site along the frontal beak. It will be bolstered with light nasal packing to keep the graft in place during healing.
Device: Porcine Intestinal submucosal xenograft
Cook Biodesign ENT repair graft will be used in the experimental group to cover exposed bone in the sinonasal cavity as a result of the Draf III/endoscopic modified lothrop procedure.
Other Name: Cook Biodesign ENT Repair




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frontal sinus stenosis [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Evaluate the size of the frontal sinus outflow tract over one year after surgery


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of postoperative debridements [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Track the number of debridements required in the postoperative period

  2. Need for further surgical intervention [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Track if any further surgical procedures (in office or in operating room) that are required during postoperative period

  3. Number of postoperative infections [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Track the number of postoperative sinus infections, proven by culture, as well as the number of antibiotic courses required for treatment.

  4. Lund Kennedy Endoscopy Score [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Evaluation of the sinuses using nasal endoscopy and objective measurement using the validated Lund-Kennedy Endoscopy score

  5. SNOT-22 score [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Evaluation of patient quality of life using a validated questionnaire called the Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT) - 22.
