BACKGROUND The hypothesized association between single-suture craniosynostosis and neurodevelopment remains unclear, given the methodologic limitations of previous studies, most notably the absence of control groups. METHODS Standardized measures were used to assess the neurodevelopment of 125 matched case-control pairs shortly after cases were first(More)
Using two versions of the A-not-B task, memory and response inhibition were assessed in 17- to 24-month-old children with surgically corrected single-suture craniosynostosis (cases) and unaffected children (controls). Children's development and language were initially assessed on average at 6-7 months of age and again at this second visit. Cases and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the hypothesis that 3-year-old children with single-suture craniosynostosis would receive lower neurodevelopmental scores than a comparable group of children born with patent sutures. DESIGN Longitudinal comparison study. SETTING Five tertiary care craniofacial centers. PARTICIPANTS Patients with craniosynostosis (cases) and a(More)
