In this procedure, the provider incises the scalp and elevates a depressed skull fracture, meaning a portion of skull bone moved inward into the brain. The provider also repairs the dura, the outer membrane covering the brain , and debrides the brain when necessary. The procedure reduces pressure on the brain and corrects the noticeable depression in the skull to restore the normal appearance of the skull.
