Abstract

With consideration of these requirements, we describe our surgical technique in terminal myelocystocele repair, which combines a novel surgical incision and for the first time in a neurosurgical setting, the use of a de-epithelialized skin flap to augment the closure. We report successful operative outcomes in three infant patients with terminal myelocystocele.
