An Implant, such as a cranial implant (3), for attachment to a defect (2) in a bone structure (1) having an edge (4) is described. The implant comprises a direction of extension and a rim (5) extending substantially perpendicular to the direction of extension of the implant. The rim is configured to be attached to the edge of the bone structure and comprises at least one mounting portion (6) configured to accommodate a fastener (7) such that at least a portion (7B) of the fastener is extendible in a direction extending away from the rim at an angle (a) which is at most acute with respect to the direction of extension of the implant. The implant is configured such that upon placing the implant in the defect, the fastener is extendible into the edge of the bone defect in a controllable manner.
