Abstract: Bone flap removal procedure is growing in frequency in neurosurgical practice. Decompressive craniotomy has gained more scientifical evidences of its therapeutical value in post-traumatic brain swelling, in cerebrovascular diseases and in brain edema non - responding to clinical treatment after elective surgeries. Bone flap destination after craniotomy has many possible fates. We present a literature review of bone flap management in neurosurgical practice: technical preservation of bone flaps (under the scalp, in the abdominal wall, frozen), when to remove the bone flap and what to do when it is dropped during the craniotomy or is infected.
