Management of frontal sinus fracture: reconstruction of the sinus with iliac bone graft

Management of frontal sinus fracture: reconstruction of the sinus with iliac bone graft

Journal of Craniofacial Surgery 24(2): E194-E195

One-third of frontal sinus fractures are isolated to the anterior table. Accurate reduction and stable fixation are important in the treatment of frontal sinus fracture. Traditional approaches to the reduction of an isolated anterior table fracture include the coronal incision, the bilateral brow incision, an endoscopic brow lift with an incision either directly over the fracture or in the brow, and delayed repair with a camouflaging implant. In our experience, autogenous bone graft is considered to be the best grafting material. It has the less short-term or long-term complications, and the donor site morbidity is insignificant. We describe a case involving a 45-year-old man with a depressed anterior table fracture that we successfully treated using an iliac bone graft.
