The surgical correction of non-syndromic and syndromic craniosynostoses (CS) presents several challenges mainly related to the complexity of skull reconstruction, along with the risk of blood loss. Moreover, the surgical team has the commitment to achieve pleasant cosmetic results while minimizing morbimortality. Additionally, several strategies and instruments have been developed to handle this concern, such as technical surgery with minimal bleeding and piezo surgery and technique to obtain more bone autografts and minimize bone healing disturbances. This study was designed to present such techniques in a comprehensive revision of literature and describe them in a step-by-step fashion according to the current state of the art and the experience of pediatric neurosurgery in a single Brazilian institution.
