Abstract

Case presentation: A vascularized outer-table calvarial bone graft was used for repairing a Posnick type 2 traumatic orbito-frontal bone defect supported by the use of a calcium-based putty (AllomatrixR™) in a 7-year-old girl. Gaps between the donor and recipient sites were filled with AllomatrixR™ containing demineralized bone matrix particles. Four years later there was a good cosmetic result using an artificial left eye. Discussion: Orbito-frontal defects have been repaired using iso-, allo- or xenografts as well as synthetic materials. Anatomical studies have pointed to the importance of the superficial temporal vessels for the vascular supply of a graft to the calvaria. Conclusion: The vascularized outer-table calvarial bone graft based on the superficial temporal vessels is a reliable option for repairing bony defects in the craniofacial skeleton especially in irradiated or scarred areas where there is a paucity of well-vascularized tissues. It also has the potential for bony growth in children.
