Computed tomography (CT) revealed a severely comminuted right naso-orbital-ethmoid (NOE) complex fracture, posteriorly displaced fracture segments from the anterior table of the frontal sinus and frontal process of the maxilla, a comminuted posterior table fracture, obstruction of the frontal sinus outflow tract (FSOT), and a small area of pneumocephalus (figure 2).
Reduction of the frontal process of the maxilla and nasal bone from their displaced position against the comminuted posterior table and skull base allowed for reconstitution and ultimate preservation of the frontal sinus and FSOT.
A preoperative CT scan reveals a comminuted right naso-orbital-ethomoid fracture, posteriorly displaced fracture segments from the anterior table of the frontal sinus and frontal process of the maxilla, a comminuted posterior table fracture, and a small area of pneumocephalus.
8): Anterior ethmoid cells can pneumatize the frontal process of the maxilla adjacent to the anterior attachment of the middle turbinate to the ethmoid crest of the ascending process of the maxilla (the agger nasi).
The frontal process of the maxilla articulates with the frontal bone to form the medial orbital rim.
The nasal bones articulate posteriorly with the frontal process of the maxilla.
The mass was well encapsulated and not attached to the nasal septum, the upper lateral cartilage, the adjacent frontal process of the maxilla, or the contralateral nasal bone.
Depending on the degree of pneumatization, agger nasi cells can be bounded anteriorly by the frontal process of the maxilla, anterolaterally by the nasal and lacrimal bones, posterolaterally by the lamina papyracea, superiorly by the frontal sinus, inferolaterally by the uncinate process, and posteriorly by the anterior ethmoid complex.
