Product Description

Craniosynostosis  is  a  condition  in  which  premature  fusion  of  one  or  more  cranial  sutures  lead  to  abnormal  head  shape  and  growth  restriction  of  the  brain.  Nonsyndromic  craniosynostosis  occurs  in  isolation,  and  usually  involves a single suture, whereas syndromic craniosynostosis may involve mul-tiple sutures and is associated with extracraniofacial findings. Although surgical management can be similar, the treatment plan must take into consideration issues specific to the syndromes. This article aims to provide a concise overview of  the  authors’  current  understanding  regarding  the  presentation,  treatment  principle,  surgical  option,  and  debates  in  craniosynostosis.

Learning Objectives

After viewing this course, the participant should be able to:

  1. Understand the craniofacial dysmorphology of craniosynostosis, and the variation of each type. 
  2. Identify the functional concerns and learn the ratio-nale behind timing of operative intervention. 
  3. Approach each dysmorphology critically and identify the operative intervention needed to improve form and function  
  4. Understand  and  address  the  specific  issues  related  to  syndromic  craniosynostosis and be able to delineate management plan.
