Cranioplasty after Craniectomy in a Pediatric Population: Single-Center Experience from a Developing Country
Cranioplasty is a frequently performed procedure in neurosurgery. The pediatric population for this procedure is distinct from the adult one because of the growing skulls and thinner bones of the calvarium. A paucity of data on the outcomes of this procedure in the pediatric population has been identified repeatedly. We conducted a retrospective cohort study to investigate the outcomes in a pediatric population that underwent cranioplasty after craniectomy at our institute in a developing-world country. Our cohort showed no association of complication rate or cosmetic outcomes with the timing of cranioplasty, area of skull defect, type of implant used, or method of storage.
