In all the cases, the surgeon could obtain a satisfactory stability of the cranial flap at the end of the surgery, with neither dislocation nor undesired displacements. Three or two devices were implanted by hand in each surgery, without difficulties or material breakage. The closure time was usually approx. 2 min, consistently with the results obtained in the preclinical tests.
