Abstract

Reduction cranioplasty is required in selected patients when macrocephaly interferes with head control, seating, locomotion, and social acceptance. Two different surgical techniques for reduction cranioplasty in two cases of older hydrocephalic patients are described. Emphasis is placed on the basic stages of the procedure.
