In this paper, we describe the experience with the use of endoscopic craniofacial procedures, evaluating the design and the efficacy of a new craniotome in cadavers and his clinical application in a case of sagittal synostosis for an endoscopic assisted cranioplasty. This procedure is a great option in the treatment of craniosynostosis, giving the benefits of minimal invasive surgery and eliminating the needing of big incisions, long hospital stay and reducing the postoperative morbidity.
