Summary of "Cosmetic and Neuroprotective Placement of a Custom-made Ultra-high-molecular-weight Polyethylene Cranial Plate (SKULPIO®) in Single-step Surgery: A Technical Note and Case Report."

Cranioplasty is a common procedure in neurosurgery. However, cosmetic and neuroprotective reconstructions are necessary following cranioplasty. Treatment of patients with a meningioma with bone infiltration requires the removal of the tumor-infiltrated bone and subsequent cranioplasty. We report an efficient technique for cosmetic and neuroprotective reconstructions using a custom-made ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene cranial plate (SKULPIO®, Kyocera Medical, Kyoto, Japan) in a single-step surgery involving tumor removal and skull reconstruction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A ready-made or custom-made prosthesis of glass or plastic shaped and colored to resemble the anterior portion of a normal eye and used for cosmetic reasons. It is attached to the anterior portion of an orbital implant (ORBITAL IMPLANTS) which is placed in the socket of an enucleated or eviscerated eye. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

The stable placement of surgically induced fractures of the mandible or maxilla through the use of elastics, wire ligatures, arch bars, or other splints. It is used often in the cosmetic surgery of retrognathism and prognathism. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p636)

A mass-spectrometric technique that is used for microscopic chemical analysis. A beam of primary ions with an energy of 5-20 kiloelectronvolts (keV) bombards a small spot on the surface of the sample under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Positive and negative secondary ions sputtered from the surface are analyzed in a mass spectrometer in regards to their mass-to-charge ratio. Digital imaging can be generated from the secondary ion beams and their intensity can be measured. Ionic images can be correlated with images from light or other microscopy providing useful tools in the study of molecular and drug actions.

A hole or break through the wall of the UTERUS, usually made by the placement of an instrument or INTRAUTERINE DEVICES.

Rounded objects made of coral, teflon, or alloplastic polymer and covered with sclera, and which are implanted in the orbit following enucleation. An artificial eye (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) is usually attached to the anterior of the orbital implant for cosmetic purposes.
