You may need a Cranioplasty for any of the following reasons:
Cranioplasty is carried out in the presence of general anesthesia. Once you are unconscious your surgeon will position you in such a way that he/she gets optimal access to the bone defect. He/she then prepares the incision site leaving only the surgical site exposed. Next, your surgeon will carefully cut the skin of your scalp and separate it into layers thereby protecting the brain. The edges of the surrounding bone will be cleaned along with the surface so that the bone or implant can be positioned properly in the region of defect. After the positioning the region is secured to the cranial bones with screws, plates or both. With the bone or implant in place, bleeding gets controlled and the surgeon will move the scalp back to its original position and closes the incision with nylon sutures. You may also have a small suction drain left in place to help remove any excess fluid. The drain will be removed in just a few days.
Most patients will spend one or two days recovering in the hospital following a cranioplasty. Your recovery time will depend on your personal health conditions, as well as the condition being treated with the cranioplasty. You can expect to be on activity restrictions for a period of six to 12 weeks. You will be advised to limit your physical activities such as carrying weight, driving and exercise.
