Cranial vault growth in multiple-suture nonsyndromic and syndromic craniosynostosis: a postoperative long-term anthropometric follow-up


Metzler, Philipp; Zemann, Wolfgang; Jacobsen, Christine; Lübbers, Heinz-Theo; Grätz, Klaus Wilhelm; Obwegeser, Joachim Anton (2013). Cranial vault growth in multiple-suture nonsyndromic and syndromic craniosynostosis: a postoperative long-term anthropometric follow-up. Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, 24(3):753-757.

Abstract

Long-term anthropometric follow-up of cranial vault growth may considerably add valuable information to current literature focusing on treatment strategies for premature multiple-suture craniosynostosis. The aim of this paper was to compare postoperative growth patterns of nonsyndromic and syndromic multiple-suture craniosynostotic children with sex-matched and age-matched children from the typically developing population. Forty-one multiple-suture craniosynostotic patients (19 nonsyndromic and 22 syndromic) were included in this 5-year follow-up. Anthropological data of sex-matched and age-matched normal Swiss children served as a control. A standardized time protocol for anthropometric skull measurements (head circumference and cephalic index) was used. Data were converted into Z-scores for standardized intercenter comparison. All patients showed a marked benefit in cranial vault shape after open skull remodeling. Significant differences in long-term cranial vault growth pattern could be seen between the nonsyndromic and the syndromic groups compared to the control group.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
