The authors have used lyophilized dura mater for primary repair of five large myelomeningoceles. Their preliminary experience suggests that lyophilized dura can be used safely in myelodysplastic neonates. Furthermore, the use of lyophilized dura simplifies significantly the surgical repair of myelomeningoceles.
