Palhares Neto, Aristides Augusto
We present our clinical experience in cranioplasty with autograft as follows: conchal cartilage for losses up to 2 cm2, outer table grafts for defects up to 100 cm2, and, for larger defects still, split rib grafts, which may be combined with outer table grafts. We conclude that autograft is superior to alloplastic material in cranioplasty.
