craniosynostosis. 3 , 6 Few cases of nonsyndromic multiple-suture craniosynostosis, or newly appearing secondary synostosis, have been reported, but most fused sutures are diagnosed concurrently, and plans for reconstruction include all deformities. 3 We report on a patient in whom sagittal suture synostosis was diagnosed and confirmed by CT scanning and in whom a unilateral coronal suture synostosis subsequently developed. Case Report Examination This 2-month-old girl was born at 35 weeks' gestation. She had a concomitant history of multiple congenital

growth alteration that occurs at each suture to account for this compensatory response is unknown. Consequently, the present radiocephalometric investigation was designed to examine whether premature closure of the coronal suture in rabbits results in altered sutural growth at the adjacent transverse sutures of the vault. In addition, we were interested in whether the early surgical release of a prematurely fused coronal suture results in altered growth at the other transverse sutures of the skull.

H ead injuries are relatively common in traumas involving children, especially in those younger than 2 years of age. Proposed guidelines 21 based on available clinical data have been established to balance the benefit of effective treatment of head injury in young children with the risks of unnecessary radiation exposure and waste of medical resources. Here I report the case of an initially missed nondisplaced coronal suture fracture from a fall in a 14-month-old child, who subsequently developed a delayed intracranial hemorrhage needing surgical intervention

C raniosynostosis is a condition in which one or more of the calvarial sutures fuses prematurely. The overall incidence of craniosynostosis is estimated to be 1 out of 2500 live births. Most commonly, craniosynostosis is considered to be idiopathic and not associated with a genetic syndrome (Crouzon or Apert), a metabolic disease (Rickets or hyperthyroidism), or secondary to another process (shunted hydrocephalus). Craniosynostosis of the coronal sutures makes up approximately 25% of cases. 34 Children with the condition are commonly recognized by their

This 6-year-old boy presented with headache and vomiting 6 hours after a television tipover injury to the head. A CT scan and MR imaging with venography revealed diastatic disruption of the coronal suture extending 1.5 inches on either side of the midline with embedded skin under the fracture line ( Fig. 1A ). Because of the patient's hair, this was not appreciated on initial scalp examination ( Fig. 1B ). There was a small epidural hematoma posterior to the embedded skin. We decided to operate as there was concern regarding skin viability and infection. An

considered a safe procedure. Most of the literature reports very low rates of mortality or long-term morbidity. However, surgery is associated with risks. Temporary morbidity rates range between 2.9% and 15.4%, 2 , 3 , 5 , 6 , 8–10 , 14 , 16–19 , 22–25 and careful planning and knowledge of structures that constitute and surround the foramen of Monro and third ventricular floor are critical. During the typical procedure, a bur hole is placed on the frontal convexity near the coronal suture, allowing for a transfrontal approach through the foramen of Monro to open the floor

dura mater are injured, and we thus tried to locate the vascular void area around the frontal region where it would be acceptable to introduce a catheter into the subdural cavity. Because the coronal suture and the STL can be measured exactly from the scalp and brain CT scans, we evaluated the vascular void area around the coronal suture and STL. External Carotid Artery Angiography Between August 2003 and July 2006, 40 patients who underwent selective catheter angiography of the ECA were randomly selected, regardless of the study purpose. All patients were > 40

-year-olds (and no 20- or 21-year-olds), we excluded them too. One coronal suture was excluded because of involvement by fracture. Thus, 331 reconstructions and 1323 sutures were ultimately included ( Supplemental Table 1 ). The subject ages ranged from 11 days to 18 years. There were 215 males (65%) and 116 females (35%). The sagittal suture was fused or partially fused in 21 subjects (6%; Table 1 ). In 4 subjects, the medial sections of adjacent sutures were also fused ( Fig. 1D–G ): the lambdoid in 2, the coronal in 1, and the lambdoid and coronal in 1. None of

syndromes. Patients with brain lesions, hematomas, and/or midline shift were excluded from the control group. To compare the measures of the UCS group with the control group, we performed an unpaired t-test. For the variables sex and age, the groups were compared using Fisher's exact test. Consent to perform the studies was obtained from all patients' families. Results Study Population Of the 50 patients with UCS, 56% (28) had fusion of the right coronal suture and 44% (22) had left-sided fusion. Type I UCS was seen in only 1 patient, Type IIA in 20 patients

roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis with the aid of metallic implants. 52 The linear and volumetric growth changes before and after linear craniectomy following coronal suture immobilization were assessed. To detect any eventual temporary variations in somatic growth due to surgically induced health disturbances, tibial growth was followed concomitantly with craniofacial development. Materials and Methods Experimental Animals Eight 4-week-old (30 ± 2 days) male New Zealand White rabbits were used for this study. The animals were divided into two
