Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The evolution of cranioplasty techniques is described. A cranioplasty technique is presented that incorporates metallic mesh within acrylic and utilizes the principle of rigid fixation to avoid micromotion at the alloplastic-bone interface. Six procedures have been completed without complications.
