Cranial auto graft expansion (CAGE) technique for cranial vault expansion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a method for cranial vault expansion that provides a strong construct, leaves small skull defects, and provides bony coverage of the sagittal sinus. The resultant small defects optimize the possibility for spontaneous reossification while avoiding large calvarial defects. This method has been used in 2 children who developed clinical evidence of total cranial growth restriction.
