Abstract

Repair of skull defects for brain protection and aesthetics is still a surgical problem for which there is no completely satisfactory solution. Material used for cranioplasty should ideally be incorporated into the surrounding skull bone with a blood supply. Hydroxylapitite is a dense pure ceramic material which is biocompatible, non-toxic, non-inflammatory, non-resorptive and osteoconductive. The authors had experienced good cosmetic and functional results of cranioplasty Hydroxylapatite during 19 months of follow up period.
