PURPOSE Nonsyndromic craniosynostosis (NSC) are a group of congenital disorders sharing premature fusion of one or more of the cranial sutures that restricts and distorts growth of the skull and underlying brain. This study examined the neurodevelopmental sequelae of NSC both prior to and following reconstructive cranial surgery. METHODS Sixty-four(More)
PURPOSE Single-suture craniosynostosis (SSC) is a congenital craniofacial disorder, in which premature fusion of one of the skull sutures restricts and distorts growth of the cranium and underlying brain. This disorder of prenatal onset occurs during a critical phase of rapid growth and development of the immature brain. Craniosynostosis carries a known(More)
Nasal dermoid sinus cysts are uncommon congenital anomalies presenting either as cysts or sinuses. They are frequently associated with extension into the intracranial space, requiring craniotomy for adequate resection. At the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, we have managed 25 patients with nasal dermoid sinus cysts over 8 years and(More)
Frontoethmoidal encephaloceles are herniations of the intracranial contents through a defect in the skull at the junction of the frontal and ethmoidal bones. They are generally classified as nasofrontal, nasoethmoidal, and naso-orbital, although there may be some overlap or multiplicity. The records of 35 patients treated for frontoethmoidal encephalo-celes(More)
A front-fixing finite element method is developed for the valuation of American put options on zero-coupon bonds under a class of one-factor models of short interest rates. Numerical results are presented to examine our method and to compare it with the usual finite element method. A conjecture concerning the behavior of the early exercise boundary near the(More)
Unicoronal synostosis is frequently associated with strabismus. While the literature reports on the underlying bony dysmorphology and associated extraocular muscle dysfunction, the effect of the bony changes of fronto-orbital advancement has unpredictable effects on the strabismus associated with unicoronal synostosis. Previous authors have reported both(More)
