Abstract

A procedure is described for treating the skull with an acidulated fluoride solution at the time of intracranial implantation of cannulas or electrodes. Fluoride has a stabilizing effect on the hydroxyapatite structure of bones and teeth. In our experience, fluoride has reduced the incidence of dislodgment of intacranially implanted appliances.
