Resumen

PRADO, Felippe Bevilacqua et al. Analysis of the Frontal Sinus Morphology and the Titanium Plates Shape in Skull Fracture for Human Identification. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2016, vol.10, n.2, pp.303-308. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2016000200018.

Human identification can be performed by several methods, as anatomical structures of the facial skeletal and individuals signals. The aim of this study was to report a case of human identification from the morphological evaluation of the frontal sinus and the presence of titanium plates in skull after examination of Postero Anterior (PA) radiographs ante and postmortem. In 2008 a skull was found on a highway. Later, an alleged victim was found , who disappeared in late 2007. The skull showed postmortem teeth lost, presence of round hole in the right supra-orbital region, consistent with lesion caused by gunshot. It was also noted the presence of a miniplate of bone fixation in the form of inverted "T" in several locations of the nasal bones and bone remodeling signals in the face. PA radiograph of the skull was performed for the purpose of comparison with the X-rays provided by antemortem family. By overlapping radiographic images, there was similarity between the characteristics presented by the skull and found the alleged victim, as the frontal sinus, shape and height of the orbits, and miniplate fixation of bone with the same shape and size, not leaving no doubt that the radiographs belong to the same individual.

Palabras clave : frontal sinus; forensic anthropology; radiography.
