    The goal of cranioplasty is to achieve a lifelong, stable and structural reconstruction of the cranium covered by a healthy skin and scalp flap. We present two cases of large frontal bone defect following a accident. We describe the utilization of autogenous local split calvarial graft and titanium mesh for the reconstruction of the post trauma frontal bone defect. Cranioplasty using split calvarial bone grafting for restoring large cranial defects resulting from a trauma is a useful technique, and allows the surgeon to reconstruct a moderate to large cranial defect without rifting the inner cortical plate.
