ZUBILLAGA RODRIGUEZ, I.; SANCHEZ ANICETO, G.  and  MONTALVO MORENO, J.J.. Cranial reconstruction with biomaterials: Historical revision and current state. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.2, pp.79-89. ISSN 2173-9161.

Craniofacial defect reconstruction is still a challenging procedure. A cranioplasty is the treatment of a cranial defect or a deformity. Cranial injuries and neurosurgical procedures provide an important group of cases that allow the development of new materials and fascinating progress. The aim of this article is a historic review of the different cranial reconstructive techniques used, describing advantages and drawbacks. The biomaterials applied in recent cases are presented.

Keywords : Cranioplasty; Biomaterials.
