Effect of Burosumab and 1-25 (OH) Vitamin D on Human Osteoblasts From Patients Requiring Craniosynostosis Surgery for Idiopathic Reason or Due to Hypophosphatemic Rickets (HR)

Summary: FGF23 is the cornerstone of phosphate / calcium / vitamin D metabolism: it is synthesized mainly by osteocytes and acts as a phosphaturizing agent, inhibitor of dihydroxyvitamin D, and inhibitor of synthesis and secretion of PTH in most tissues. The specific role of FGF23 on bone has yet to be demonstrated. In osteoblasts, overexpression of FGF23 in vitro suppresses not only osteoblastic different...

Comparative Analysis of Zero Echo-time MRI and CT for Pediatric Craniosynostosis

Summary: The purpose of this study is to develop and test the effectiveness and diagnostic quality of Zero Echo Time Magnetic Resonance Imaging (ZTE MRI) in comparison to CT.

Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in Craniosynostosis Repair

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to describe the effect of cranial vault remodeling in children with craniosynostosis on white matter tracts with tractography and Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional MRI, and neurodevelopmental tests, before and after surgery as compared to age-matched controls. Study

Craniosynostosis Network

Summary: Craniosynostosis (CS) is a common malformation occurring in 4 per 10,000 live births in which the sutures between skull bones close too early, causing long-term problems with brain and skull growth. Infants with CS typically require extensive surgical treatment and may experience many perioperative complications, including hemorrhage and re-synostosis. Even with successful surgery, children can ex...

A Monocentric, Prospective Clinical Study to Evaluation of Cerebral Oxygen Saturation by Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS) in Children With Craniosynostosis

Summary: Craniosynostosis is a rare disorder characterized by a premature fusion of one or more sutures of the skull. Craniosynostosis is usually diagnosed in the first years of life. Several complications may be identified if untreated, notably, developmental delay, and vision problems. In some patients with craniosynostosis a decrease in cerebral blood perfusion can be identified. It might be related to ...

Endoscopic Strip Craniectomy for Treatment of Isolated, Non-syndromic Sagittal Craniosynostosis

Summary: Endoscopic strip craniectomy (ESC) with post-operative helmeting is the gold-standard treatment for isolated, non-syndromic sagittal craniosynostosis in children under 6 months of age as it is has been demonstrated to reduce perioperative morbidity when compared to more invasive procedures such as cranial vault remodeling. ESC is frequently performed with or without the use of lateral osteotomies ...

Clinical Feasibility Study of Preoperative Surgical Planning for Craniosynostosis Procedures

Summary: Most children diagnosed with craniosynostosis undergo a relatively extensive cranial vault remodeling procedure. The decision of performing surgical cranial shape correction for patients with craniosynostosis typically rests on a subjective visual assessment of the severity of the cranial malformation and the main goal of this procedure is to reduce the risk of elevated intracranial pressure and t...

Comparison of the Rate of Preoperative Haemoglobin After Administration of Epoetin Alpha Associated With an Oral Medical Supplementation Versus Intravenous Before Surgery of Craniosynostosis at the Child

Summary: Oral iron is commonly used in conjunction with EPO preoperatively for hemorrhagic surgeries in children and especially in the surgery of craniosynostosis. The bioavailability of oral iron is low and compliance with treatment is inconsistent. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether the use of ferric carboxymaltose by injection, which has a much better bioavailability, would make it possible to...

Bedside Resources to Gauge Intravascular Volume Status in Hypovolemic Infants in the Operating Room

Summary: The goal if this study is to employ the CardioQ-Esophageal Aortic Doppler probe to define fluid responders from non-responders among infants undergoing cranial vault reconstruction for craniosynostosis. After defining these two groups in this single arm prospective trial, the investigators will compare the predictive utility of non-invasive devices such as the CipherOx-Compensatory Reserve Index (...

Craniofacial Imaging With 3D MRI: an Alternative to Ionising Radiation

Summary: Craniosynostosis is a condition where infants are born with or subsequently develop an abnormally shaped skull. The skull develops from plates of bone separated from each other by growth lines (sutures). Craniosynostosis refers to early fusion of one or more of these sutures. Whilst in many cases the abnormal head shape provides doctors with the underlying diagnosis, it is necessary to confirm thi...

GROWing Up With Rare GENEtic Syndromes ….When Children With Complex Genetic Syndromes Reach Adult Age

Summary: Introduction Rare complex syndromes Patients with complex genetic syndromes, by definition, have combined medical problems affecting multiple organ systems, and intellectual disability is often part of the syndrome. During childhood, patients with rare genetic syndromes receive multidisciplinary and specialized medical care; they usually receive medical care from 3-4 medical specialists. Increased...
