Abstract

There are various flaps for bifrontal exposure of the anterior fossa classically described in the neurosurgical literature. This article describes a bifrontal split osteoplastic flap that is characterized by removal of the anterior wall of the frontal sinus without the placement of burr holes on the external surface of the frontal bone. The procedure is safe and rapid, gives the same exposure as other techniques, and allows a superior cosmetic result.
