Although injuries to the frontal sinus are a reasonably common traumatic injury encountered by reconstructive surgeons, definitive indications for open exploration and the optimum method for handling the residual sinus cavity remain unsettled. During the last 3 years, we have accomplished frontal sinus obliteration with an 'extended' pericranial flap in 14 consecutive patients. Thus far, we have not encountered any complications.
