Surgical correction of metopic suture synostosis.
Clin Plast Surg. 1994 Oct; 21(4):555-62.CP

Abstract

Premature fusion of the metopic suture is an uncommon form of craniosynostosis, historically reported with an incidence of less than 10% among the various forms of craniosynostoses. Despite its infrequency, it is the most obvious deformity associated with premature fusion of a single suture with its prominent frontal keel, narrow forehead, and close-set eyes. This article discusses the timing, long-term results, and recent advances of surgical techniques.
