Case description:
A patient suffered cranial injuries as a result of a road accident in November 2016. The cranial damage was very extensive, with two large bone defects on the right and left sides of the cranium. Attempts were made to preserve the patient’s own cranial bones, but the body rejected them. As no other reconstruction options were available, the doctor suggested to use a Codubix implant to repair the cranial bone defects.
