Transplant of Adult Bone for Reconstruction of a Large Post-Traumatic Cranial Defect in a Very Young Baby

We present an 18-month-old baby with a large post-traumatic cranial defect which was repaired by assembling a new bone flap on a sterile stereolithographic 3-D model. This customized newly assembled flap consisted of a scaffold of autologous bone (from vault duplication) sustaining 2 large grafts of homologous cadaveric bone. It was adequately modeled and contoured on the 3-D model using metallic plates and screws. Immediately after implantation on the skull, the metallic devices were progressively replaced by reabsorbable material, thus maintaining the previously obtained flap profile. In this paper we detail this original technique which was developed to manage this specific patient.Pediatr Neurosurg

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings show the complexity of the psychosocial impacts among adolescent victims of the Colombian armed conflict and their attention. Highly trained professionals and alternative strategies including active listening, observation and art therapy activities seem to be vital for an effective care. The lessons learned from the Colombian reintegration programme serve as important inputs to be considered when attending children and adolescents from conflict-stricken areas also in other contexts.
