LOPEZ-APARICIO, Erich; CAMARGO-CORONELL, Kenny  and  DIAZ-CABALLERO, Antonio. Frontal fractures of the cranial mass. Clinical case report. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.3, pp.170-172. ISSN 1870-199X.

Frontal fractures of the cranial mass correspond to an important pathology, occurring as a result of trauma in the upper region of the face, its causes can be diverse as: accidents, strong blows, foreign objects, and so on. Classifi cations for this type of trauma were described by different authors, depending on the anatomical part affected. This clinical case reports a male patient of 29 years, demonstrating a sinking in the upper third of the face as a sequel to blunt trauma. He was offered a custom-made bone reconstruction treatment with polyetheretherketone, to restore its proper anatomy and functionality. Finally successful treatment results were obtained. Custom-made alloplastic materials are an excellent alternative to these procedures, as they provide lower morbidity and excellent aesthetic results.

Keywords : Skull fracture depressed; frontal bone; maxillofacial prosthesis.
