Method for Securing Methlymethacrylate Bone Cement Using Histoacryl Glue During Cranioplasty for Contour Deformities
Methylmethacrylate bone cement (MM-BC) is one of the reconstructive methods: during cranioplasty to correct cranial defects following trauma or cranial surgery. Perfect intraoperative immobilization of the MM-BC is crucial to ensure correct subsequent shaping to best improve contour defects. Current immobilization techniques reported are time-consuming and involve complex metalwork. The authors hereby present a technique that may simplify the immobilization process by using histoacryl glue to secure the MM-BC. This provides a quick, inexpensive, and readily available option providing fixation strong enough to withstand final shaping of the MM-BC.
