Reconstruction of the contour of the frontal bone after trauma

Annales de Chirurgie Plastique 25(4): 329-332
Reconstruction of the contour of the frontal bone after trauma
Reconstruction of the contour of the human frontal bone after trauma is rarely carried out under emergency conditions. It must be postponed. A complete evaluation leads to a distinction between isolated maxillofacial lesions and maxillofacial lesions associated with neurosurgical damage. In the 1st case the treatment of the frontal sinuses is as physiological as possible. The repair of the contour of the frontal bone is achieved, whenever possible, by wire fixation of the fragments. The frontofacial lesions associated with neurosurgical damage are treated by 2 teams, a neurosurgical team and a maxillofacial team, in a single operation. After cranialization of the frontal sinuses, the more complex repair of the contour of the frontal bone is achieved by different techniques depending on the location and gravity of the damage (osteosynthesis of the fragments, bone autografts from the vault or elsewhere).
