Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous acrylic cranioplasty techniques have relied an wire or suture fixation of the acrylic to the skull. A new methyl methacrylate cranioplasty technique, using acrylic with titanium plating, isdescribed. METHODS Titanium plates were bent into a ''Z'' shape and attached to the skull at the perimeter of the skull defect, extending into the defect. The acrylic was then poured into the defect and held in place during setting with a sheet of plastic. The plates are therebyembedded in the acrylic, RESULTS Standard methyl methacrylate and titanium plates and screws were used to perform a new method of cranioplasty. CONCLUSIONS A rigid, form-fitting, aesthetic construct can be easily and quickly created. This technique also offers the benefit of allowing secondary craniotomy, if necessary.
