Over the 20 yr of experience, freeze dried dura mater has proved to be the most acceptable dural prosthesis to be reported. It is strong, flexible, waterproof when sutured in place, nontoxic, resistant to disintegration, and protective without reactivity and adherence. There have been no rejections and the grafts have stood up well even in the presence of infection. These attributes, together with ease of preparation and availability, make freeze dried dura mater the ideal replacement material in neurologic surgery as well as elsewhere in the body where fascial integrity must be reconstructed.
