Autogeneic Skull Bone Grafts to Reconstruct Large or Complex Skull Defects in Children and Adolescents.

Edwards, Michael S. B. M.D.; Ousterhout, Douglas K. M.D.

Collapse Box


: Autogeneic split or free skull bone grafts harvested at the time of operation were used to repair large or complex skull defects in 19 children; in 2 children, autogeneic fresh rib grafts were also used. Follow-up examinations for periods of 1 and 7 years showed that the use of autogeneic grafts is superior to the use of materials such as acrylic or metals for cranioplasty in children.
