A neu­ro­sur­gi­cal man­age­ment of an ­open com­pound ­depressed frac­ture per­fo­rat­ing ­the super­i­or sag­it­tal ­sinus is report­ed. Undue bleed­ing ­from ­the frac­ture ­did ­not ­allow a con­ser­va­tive man­age­ment. The ­patient ­had ­been oper­at­ed pri­mar­i­ly at an out­side emer­gen­cy sur­gery ­unit. Profuse uncon­trol­la­ble bleed­ing ­made a tam­po­nade of ­the ­sinus nec­es­sary ­for trans­por­ta­tion to ­our neu­ro­sur­gi­cal depart­ment. After recon­struc­tion of ­the ­sinus he sur­vived with­out evi­dence of a neu­ro­log­i­cal def­i­cit.
