Summary

In this add on procedure, the provider incises and retrieves a cranial bone graft that was previously stored in a subcutaneous pocket in the abdomen or in the inner lining of the scalp near the site of the defect to preserve the graft and reduce graft devitalization. The provider then uses the stored graft to repair the skull bone defect in a procedure called a cranioplasty.
