116 Possible Causes for Depressed Frontal Bones

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    […] fractures, frontal bone fractures, and fractures involving the base of the skull.[dx.doi.org] Possible causes are shear injury involving the olfactory nerve at the cribriform plate, mechanical injury to nasal bones or sinuses, and anterior frontal or temporal lobe[dx.doi.org] 40 Communication between the intracranial compartment and the air constitutes an open head injury and can result from linear fractures with overlying scalp lacerations, depressed[dx.doi.org]

  • Skull Fracture

    COMMINUTED DEPRESSED FRACTURE of the frontal sinus with air fluid and bone fragments in frantal sinus and Pneumocephalus; level of depression greater than width of cortex[slideshare.net] [Figure caption and citation for the preceding image starts]: Comminuted depressed fracture of the frontal sinus with air, fluid, and bone fragments in frontal sinus and pneumocephalus[bestpractice.bmj.com] Axial computed tomography scan demonstrates an open comminuted and depressed frontal bone fracture with clotted blood along the interhemispheric fissure.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Prognathism

    This paper presents a case of CCD in a female with brachycephalic skull, depressed frontal bone and nasal bridge, hypoplastic middle one‑third of face with mandibular prognathism[ajol.info] frontal bone (delayed anterior fontanelle closure), hypoplastic mandible [Figure 1], lax skin over abdomen and knees, short phalanges.[ijpd.in] Brachycephalic skull with depression in the frontal bone of skull, depressed nasal bridge and hypoplastic middle one-third of face with mandibular prognathism was evident[amhsr.org]

  • Malunited Fracture

  • Depressed Skull Fracture

    […] in the left frontal bone at time of delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most depressed skull fractures occur near the frontal lobe or parietal lobe, where the bone is thinnest and the location of the skull is most prone to an attack.[ebtrialattorneys.com] CT scans demonstrated a depressed fracture of the left frontal bone and stagnation of cerebrospinal fluid around the fracture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    bone depression CSF rhinorrhoea Neurological injuries Cerebral contusion Subdural & epidural haematoma Ophthalmic injuries Pupillary defect Optic neuropathy Hyphaema Disc[slideshare.net] The depression was found in all the breeds studied, and in both sexes on the lateral sides of both cornual processes of the frontal bones.[freethesaurus.com] Reconstruction of post-traumatic frontal-bone depression using hydroxyapatite cement. Ann Plast Surg 2004;52:303–308. PMID: 15156987 . 19.[e-acfs.org]

  • Fracture of the Cribriform Plate

    […] in the frontal bone and complete the foramen cecum.[en.wikipedia.org] Its anterior border, short and thick, articulates with the frontal bone, and presents two small projecting alæ, which are received into corresponding depressions in the frontal[theodora.com] These projections are connected to depressions located in the frontal bone. The grooved, narrow cribriform plate also has the function of supporting the olfactory bulb.[wisegeek.com]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    […] fractures, frontal bone fractures, and fractures involving the base of the skull.[doi.org] Possible causes are shear injury involving the olfactory nerve at the cribriform plate, mechanical injury to nasal bones or sinuses, and anterior frontal or temporal lobe[doi.org] 40 Communication between the intracranial compartment and the air constitutes an open head injury and can result from linear fractures with overlying scalp lacerations, depressed[doi.org]

  • Intracranial Hemorrhage

    […] fractures, frontal bone fractures, and fractures involving the base of the skull.[doi.org] Possible causes are shear injury involving the olfactory nerve at the cribriform plate, mechanical injury to nasal bones or sinuses, and anterior frontal or temporal lobe[doi.org] 40 Communication between the intracranial compartment and the air constitutes an open head injury and can result from linear fractures with overlying scalp lacerations, depressed[doi.org]

  • Nasal Fracture

    Mild forces may only cause unilateral nasal bone depression; severe blows result in bilateral fractures with septal disruption; and frontal blows cause impaction injuries.[entaacare.com] Although frontal impact can cause fracture of the nasal bones, lateral impacts are more common.[emedicine.medscape.com] Approximately 80% of nasal fractures occur between the thicker proximal and thinner distal segments of the nasal bones.[emedicine.medscape.com]
