In an attempt to evaluate cranioplasty, author reviewed 53 cases of head injuries with cranial defect repaired by cranioplasty. Materials used for cranioplasty were acrylic resin in 42 cases, tantalum in 6 cases and iliac bone in 5 cases. Adequate follow-up observations were obtained in all cases for at least 4 years. The results were as follows; 1) The majority of head injuries were caused by vehicle accident. 2) The majority of skull defects were in the frontal and parietal bones. 3) The interval between primary craniectomy and secondary cranioplasty was from 3 to 4 months in the majority of cases and cranioplasty was performed after fixation of permanent neurologic defect. 4) The indications for the cranioplasty were based upon criteria recommended by Grant and Norcross. 5) Postoperative complications were observed in 3 cases(5.7%).
