OBJECT Cranioplasty is required to protect underlying brain, correct major aesthetic deformities, or both. The ideal material for this purpose is autogenous bone. When this is not available, alloplastic or artificial materials may be used. These materials should be malleable, strong, lightweight, inert, noncarcinogenic, nonferromagnetic, and, if possible, inexpensive. The authors reviewed their surgical experience with a new bone substitute and discuss outcomes in patients in whom it was used…

A Method of Cranioplasty Using Coralline Hydroxyapatite
TLDR
In neurosurgical procedures when a bone substitute is needed, hydroxyapatite is an effective alternative to other currently available materials.

Custom made cranioplasty prostheses in porous hydroxy-apatite using 3D design techniques: 7 years experience in 25 patients
TLDR
Bioceramic porous hydroxy-apatite prosthesis have been demonstrated as a valid alternative to traditional cranioplasty techniques both aesthetically and in terms of absence of infections/rejections.
The Use of Frozen Autogenous Bone Flaps in Delayed Cranioplasty Revisited
TLDR
The clinical and aesthetic results of delayed cranioplasty using frozen autogenous bone flaps were satisfactory, and the most important factor for success was excellent contiguity between the flap and the bone edge.
Hydroxyapatite Cranioplasty: 2. Clinical Experience With a New Quick-Setting Material
TLDR
A clinical series of 62 patients who underwent cranioplasty using a new quick-setting hydroxyapatite (HA) material was done over a 2-year period, finding this faster-setting HA material offers similar crANIoplastic benefits as other materials but with an accelerated intraoperative set time.
Correction of Large (>25 cm2) Cranial Defects with “Reinforced” Hydroxyapatite Cement: Technique and Complications
TLDR
The use of hydroxyapatite cement with mesh and miniplates provides internal structural support and increased stability of the construct, and the rate of infection is alarmingly high in these large constructs.
DELAYED CRANIOPLASTY REVISITED
TLDR
The clinical and aesthetic results of delayed cranioplasty using frozen autogenous bone flaps were satisfactory, and the most important factor for success was excellent contiguity between the flap and the bone edge.

Implants for cranioplasty.
BONE AUGMENTATION WITH HYDROXYAPATITE: HISTOLOGICAL FINDINGS IN 55 CASES
TLDR
The inclusion of the titanium implants within the newly formed bone was evident, and the hydroxyapatite granules applied during second-stage surgery were firmly embedded within the Newly formed trabecular bone.
Experimental transplantation of hydroxylapatite-bone composite grafts.
Acrylic cranioplasty using miniplate struts.
TLDR
The authors describe a technique using miniplates as struts to which the acrylic is applied using a "reinforced concrete" principle that allows contour of the repair site while the acrylic was curing and provides a more resilient resulting prosthesis.
Imaging after titanium cranioplasty.
TLDR
It is concluded that titanium plate is the material of choice for cranioplasty on the basis of its strength, biocompatibility and excellent handling characteristics, allied to its suitability for all post-operative imaging techniques.
