Coronal approach

The incision is made with a No. 10 blade

The incision is made with a No.10 blade or a special cautery scalpel to the depth of the pericranium or to the bone.
Dissect this flap in the subgaleal or subpericranial plane depending on requirements.
The pericranium can be raised as a separate, anteriorly pedicled vascularized flap for reconstructive purposes.
