My son had a accident resulting in severe TBI for three years now. He has a skull replacement over the left side of his skull. It is made of a Kevlar like material attached to his remaining bone. In 2010 I noticed changes just behind his left ear. We started a "wait and see" period. Four months later his shunt failed. His skull was also moving, the edge between his bone and skull replacement was enlarging and filling with CFS. I have been looking for any information on cases or medical information on this type of event. His replacement continues to slide on his skull. Does anyone know anything about the attachments they use to connect the replacement to the skull bone?

Hello Anon,

I am so sorry to hear about your son's injury and complicated recovery. In a search of our communities I found two member created communities that may be helpful -

Traumatic Brain Injury Survivors and Caregivers
TBI - Accidentally Forgotten

And a couple other places to network for information -
Brain Injury Association of America

Hoping you find answers soon,
