Abstract Although it is currently thought that surgery is indicated mainly for cosmetic reasons in isolated craniosynostoses, the functional aspects of the treatment must not be underestimated. Prospective studies on intracranial pressure and mental evolution of these children have shown that there were functional consequences in a significant proportion of cases even of single suture fusion. The frequency of increased intracranial hypertension and the risk of mental impairment depend on the… Expand
