Pierre Robin sequence may result in physiologically significant obstructive apnea in the neonatal and infant period. This may be life threatening and is most often treated by tracheostomy. To avoid tracheostomy or allow for early decannulation in severely affected infants and children, the authors have developed a new class of neonatal and infant mandibular bone distraction devices. These devices require a single operative procedure for placement and no operative removal is necessary. Fifteen… CONTINUE READING
