Abstract

Chronic frontal sinus infections in the setting of previous trauma or tumor removal are challenging clinical scenarios. To remove and débride all chronically infected tissue, obliterate dead space, and provide a stable reconstructive yet aesthetic contour are critical tasks in managing these patients. The vascularized free fibula is an ideal flap for this situation; in this article, the authors detail their technique in a patient with chronic frontal sinus infections complicated by mucocele formation.
