The effect of neurocranial surgery on basicranial morphology in isolated sagittal craniosynostosis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Isolated sagittal craniosynostosis produces a scaphocephalic neurocranium associated with abnormal basicranial morphology, providing additional evidence of the developmental relationship of the neurocranium and basicranium. Corrective surgical procedures vary, but the immediate impact of the surgical procedure is restricted to the neurocranium… (More)
