Frontal sinus fractures have been reported in 2 to 12 percent of all cranial fractures and, according to one study, in 8 percent of all facial fractures. Although immediate frontal bone reconstruction is not universally accepted, it is rapidly becoming the standard of care in treating cranial facial fractures, even in the face of gross contamination. This article presents a historical overview of fracture management, a review of the relevant anatomy, and a discussion of appropriate management principles. Three case studies are presented to demonstrate appropriate techniques for the management of frontal sinus fractures.
