Craniosynostosis is a skull malformation because of premature fusing of one or more cranial sutures. The most common types of craniosynostosis are scaphocephaly (with the sagittal suture fused) and trigonocephaly (with the metopic suture fused). In this paper we describe and discuss how finite element analysis and three-dimensional modeling can be used for preoperative planning of the correction of craniosynostosis and for the postoperative evaluation of the treatment results. We used the… CONTINUE READING
