Anthropometric analysis of mandibular asymmetry in infants with deformational posterior plagiocephaly.

Abstract

PURPOSE The incidence of deformational posterior plagiocephaly has increased dramatically since 1992. We tested the hypothesis that mandibular asymmetry, associated with this condition, is secondary to anterior displacement of the ipsilateral temporomandibular joint. The response to molding helmet therapy was also evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS A caliper… (More)
