Twenty five cases of post operative cranial vault defects were repaired using tailor made silastic implants in the last three years. Twenty four patients are tolerating the implant without any problems. All of them had symptomatic, relief and achieved an excellent cosmetic skull contour. Ten patients had subgaleal serous collection postoperatively, probably due to reaction to the implanted material, which usually subsided within three weeks. Only in one patient, the implant had to be removed due to infection. In conclusion, silastic is a good implant material for cranioplasty.
