Growing skull fractures after craniosynostosis repair: risk factors and treatment algorithm


Zemann, Wolfgang; Metzler, P; Jacobsen, C; Kruse, A L; Lübbers, H T; Könü, D; Obergesser, J A (2012). Growing skull fractures after craniosynostosis repair: risk factors and treatment algorithm. Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, 23(5):1292-1295.

Abstract

Growing skull fractures (GSFs) are rare complications after severe head injuries in the early childhood and rarely occur after craniosynostosis repair. The aim of this study was to define an algorithm for sufficient treatment for GSF after craniofacial procedures. Literature research was performed to clarify risk factors for GSFs after cranial vault reshaping. Conclusions of the literature and experiences of the authors based on a case of GSF after craniofacial surgery were matched to establish guidelines for successful therapy.
