Click Here to View Part II
This exhibit features the first part of a skull reconstruction procedure. A large curvilinear incision was made (extending a scalp laceration) over the right side of the head. The scalp flap was reflected anteriorly to expose comminuted depressed skull fractures and hemorrhaging. The bone fragments were removed, revealing a dural teal where fracture fragments had driven into the brain.
