Summary: This study determined what craniometric changes occur to both orbits of patients with unicoronal craniosynostosis (premature fusion of skull sutures) undergoing fronto-orbital advancement and remodeling, and which of these changes are associated with new onset of postoperative strabismus (cross-eye).
Journal: American journal of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics : official publication of the American Association of Orthodontists, its constituent societies, and the American Board of Orthodontics
Treatment Used: LeFort III Distraction Osteogenesis
Summary: This study investigated long-term changes in patients undergoing LeFort III distraction osteogenesis as children for syndromic craniosynostosis with severe midface retrusion, and compared outcomes to an unaffected, untreated control.
Summary: This study assessed whether long-term outcomes were equivalent between computer-assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) -assisted cranial vault reconstruction performed by an inexperienced surgeon, with fewer years of surgical experience, and traditional reconstruction performed by senior surgeons with many decades of experience.
Summary: This review of the literature compared the perioperative morbidity profile of secondary frontal orbital advancement (FOA) (study) to that of primary frontal orbital advancement (FOA) (control) in the treatment of syndromic craniosynostosis (facial anomalies).
Condition: Children With Syndromic Craniosynostosis and Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Journal: European archives of oto-rhino-laryngology : official journal of the European Federation of Oto-Rhino-Laryngological Societies (EUFOS) : affiliated with the German Society for Oto-Rhino-Laryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Summary: This review of the literature evaluated the effectiveness of adenotonsillectomy (operation to remove the tonsils) for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA; breath repeatedly stop and start during sleep).
Summary: This study compared postoperative changes in orbital asymmetry following 2 common procedures.Preoperative and 1-year postoperative computed tomography scans for patients with isolated, non-syndromic unicoronal synostosis (premature fusion of cranial sutures).
