To compare the practical difficulties of external and internal craniofacial distraction devices used in craniofacial advancement in terms of technical surgical limitations and patients’ discomfort. This study involved analysis of the pertinent literature and personal experience on the treatment of patients affected with syndromic craniosynostoses treated with craniofacial distraction advancement. One hundred patients who underwent internal craniofacial distraction were analyzed. This kind of… CONTINUE READING
