Abstract

ABSTRACT: We describe the clinical case of a 62-year-old man with an atypical grade II meningioma, invading bone and scalp, and present a step-by-step video description of a modified technique for cranioplasty and scalp reconstruction with latissimus dorsi flap. By using this technique, we aim to minimize the space between the dura and the flap, which would decrease the risk of fluid collections and infections.
