Background: The percentage of permanent infirmities following traumatic cranial bone cranial bone defects following trauma for restoration of function and cosmoses. This study designed to evaluate the influence of cranioplasty as a method of skull repair on work capability of the patients and their employability.

Methods: The authors compared the work capability and employment of 35 patients with traumatic cranial bone defects after head trauma treated in the Neurosurgery Department of Assiut University Hospitals, Egypt from January 2013 to January 2018 before and after cranioplasty.


Cranioplasty is surgical repair of a cranial bone defect, important to cover defects following skull trauma for restoration of function, cosmoses and protective effects. Cranioplasty is the surgical procedure in which the autologous skull, synthetic materials (titanium, methyl methacrylate, polyetheretherketone implants, hydroxyapatite, and bioceramics are used to repair the skull defect
