A technique for the delayed reconstruction of bone defects of the cranial vault with antibiotic acrylic is described. The prosthesis is superimposed on the margins of the bone defect without separation of the dural plane and the scar tissues from the margins. The procedure greatly reduces operation time, avoids injury to the cerebral parenchyma and underlying vessels and permits a firm reconstruction that is well tolerated and asthetically excellent.
