Surgery of frontal sinus
fracture: epidemiological study and analysis of techniques.
The last paranasal sinus to develop between the inner and outer table of the frontal bone is the frontal sinus
. The frontal sinus
is formed by pneumatisation of the frontal recess into the frontal bone.
Otolaryngologists from North America, Brazil, and Australia offer 33 chapters containing endoscopic photos, illustrations, and instructions for procedures, as well as information on anatomy and surgical indications, instrumentation, pitfalls, and preoperative and postoperative considerations, for the areas of nasal surgery, primary endoscopic sinus surgery, revision endoscopic sinus surgery for inflammatory disease, orbital surgery, sinonasal tumors, skull base reconstruction, anterior and central skull base approaches, and combined endoscopic and open approaches for the frontal sinus
, ranging from septoplasty and sphenoethmoidectomy to extended frontal sinus
procedures and endoscopic craniofacial resections.
Communication occurs through the frontal nasal duct, between each frontal sinus
and ethmoidal infundibulum which, in turn, opens into the semilunar hiatus in the mid-nasal meatus (MOORE; DALLEY, 2007).
Primary frontal sinus
aspergilloma was first reported by Gupta in 1973, after that, a few cases of aspergilloma located in the frontal sinus
were reported (1-9).
Erosions of both medial orbital walls were noted along with evidence of extradural extension into the anterior cranial fossa via the posterior wall of left frontal sinus
. There was also evidence of erosion along the floor of the anterior cranial fossa, including the pituitary fossa along with extradural extension.
grows only after puberty and stabilizes by the age 20.
Ameloblastoma of the sinonasal tracts is uncommon and of the frontal sinus
is very rare.
(1) Sino-orbital osteomas present with clinical findings due to mass effect such as pain, headache, facial distortion, proptosis, and visual changes or due to nasofrontal duct obstruction by frontal sinus
tumors, which cause mucoceles and infections.
Xu said that such a product could also be used in periodontal bone repair, mandibular and maxillary ridge augmentation, reconstruction of frontal sinus
and craniofacial skeletal defects, and other stress-bearing orthopedic applications.
Their discussions include anesthesia and wound closure, bite wounds, frontal sinus
fractures, and the post-operative evaluation of free flap reconstruction.
Leon McKenzie is out for six weeks after aggravating an ankle injury and Dean Ashton has a depressed fracture of the frontal sinus
