Abstract [en]

Intraosseous meningioma of the chordoid type is a rare clinical entity. Radical surgical removal and subsequent cranioplasty is the treatment of choice. Here, the authors report a severe case involving more than 70% of the calvarial surface area, which was removed and repaired using a prefabricated custom-made, titanium-reinforced, bioceramic implant and bone-cutting guides. Tumor removal and good esthetic outcome were achieved, along with a 17.1% increase of intracranial volume. Bioceramic implants have shown promising initial results and may represent an important new tool in the surgeon's armamentarium.
