A new one-stage procedure for the reconstruction of the skull has been described, utilising the autogenous bone dust produced while making holes in the skull with a burr. This bone dust is spread over the dura at the site of the defect and both are covered by a healthy scalp.
The results in 12 dogs and 3 patients are reported. Complete bony cover was obtained in each patient and in most of the dogs.
