Endoscopic exeresis of sinonasal osteomas usually implicates the use of surgical drills with some disadvantages, as underlined by many authors. A new device that performs an ultrasound bone emulsification has been proposed in recent years for bone removal in various surgical disciplines. In this case report, we present the first clinical ENT experience with this device in removing a fronto-ethmoidal osteoma, and we briefly discuss our impressions.
