Comparison of Deep Wound Infection Rates Using a Synthetic Dural Substitute (Neuropatch) or Pericranium Graft for Dural Closure: A Clinical Review of 1 Year
Surgical Wound Infection

Synthetic dural grafts should be reserved for when autologous grafts are not sufficient or possible. An extensive prospective multicenter randomized trial is needed to confirm our results.
