INTRODUCTION Hollowing of the temporal region is a common problem after cranioplasty for unicoronal synostosis. In this study, first, the development of temporal hollowing pre- and postoperatively is evaluated. Second, the origin of temporal hollowing is investigated by comparing two operative techniques. Ultimately, the relation between timing of surgery(More)
INTRODUCTION Craniosynostosis represents premature closure of cranial sutures. Prevalence is approximately 3.1-6.4 in 10.000 live births, which is reportedly rising. This epidemiologic study aims to provide insight into this rise through an accurate description of the prevalence, exploring regional variation and change over time. METHODS The Dutch(More)
INTRODUCTION Although single-suture craniosynostosis is diagnosed sporadically during pregnancy, timely referral is critical for its treatment. Additionally, craniosynostosis leads to increased maternofetal trauma during birth. In the Netherlands, 95% of pregnant women receive a standard ultrasound at around 20 weeks of gestation, potentially an ideal(More)
PURPOSE Craniosynostosis may lead to hampered fetal head molding and birth complications. To study the interaction between single suture craniosynostosis and delivery complications, an international, multicentre, retrospective cohort study was performed. MATERIALS AND METHODS All infants born between 2006 and 2012 in the Netherlands and Sweden with(More)

Cornelissen, MD 1 ; Irene M.J. Mathijssen, MD, PhD 1 ; 1 Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Handsurgery, Sophia Children’s Hospital,(More)
BACKGROUND Trigonocephaly is caused by metopic suture synostosis. It is treated by fronto-orbital remodeling, not only to correct the deformity but also to prevent intracranial hypertension, the reported prevalence in trigonocephaly of which ranges from 0 to 33 percent. To support treatment analysis and the design of a treatment protocol for intracranial(More)
