Sagittal synostosis.
Clin Plast Surg. 1994 Oct; 21(4):563-74.CP

Abstract

Sagittal synostosis comprises a spectrum of deformities caused by premature fusion of the sagittal suture. The treatment of sagittal synostosis is dependent on the age of the patient and the characteristics of the presenting deformity. Immediate correction of the scaphocephalic deformity is the goal of operative treatment. The operative procedures proposed involve whole-vault cranial reshaping, active shortening of the anteroposterior axis, and widening of the mediolateral dimension of the skull leading to a more normal, "rounded" skull shape.
