Craniosynostosis Type 3



  • Moreover, compared with those with SCS, they seem to present a lower risk of requiring reoperation, 5 but this small sample precludes any definitive conclusion.[nature.com]
  • The general features of a child with Apert syndrome are similar to those in Crouzon syndrome however there is not as much variability between cases and the degree of presentation is more severe.[aomsi.com]
  • This paper presents a case of craniosynostosis with a genetic tendency; and although it occurred between siblings, the affected lesions differed. Thus, appropriate diagnosis and management in patients are needed.[e-acfs.org]
  • By 6,000 years ago the Torres Straits reached close to the present configuration.[internetlooks.com]
  • Craniosynostosis where no extracranial deformations are present, is called non-syndromic or 'isolated' craniosynostosis. [6] When there are extracranial deformations present, for instance involving the limbs, heart, central nervous system or the respiratory[en.wikipedia.org]
Ectopia Lentis
  • A point of difference from Marfan syndrome is that ectopia lentis does not occur. Skeletal manifestations include bowed long bones, metaphy- Fig. 1.12. Craniofrontonasal dysplasia in a 3-year-old girl.[rrnursingschool.biz]
Ear Deformity
  • […] trigonocephaly (wedge shaped) unilateral coronal craniosynostosis bilateral cornoal craniosynostosis posterior or occipital plagiocephaly sagittal craniosynostosis unilateral coronal craniosynostosis trapezoid configuration, posterior displacement of ear[brainscape.com]
Mid-Face Hypoplasia
  • The clinical features include misshapen skull caused by coronal suture synostosis, wide-set eyes, mid-face hypoplasia, choanal stenosis, and shallow orbits.[aafp.org]
Broad Nasal Bridge
  • Note craniosynostosis with frontal bossing, hypertelorism, divergent strabismus, facial asymmetry, broad nasal bridge, and bifid nose.[rrnursingschool.biz]


  • Before treatment, 6 months, 12 months, and 24 months from treatment all of the children will be scanned by Star Scanner (Orthomerica) to provide objective measurement of the cranial vault asymmetry and index.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • treatment of deformational plagiocephaly were identified.[aetna.com]
  • Treatment Treatment in infancy is directed at correction of the suture fusion and resultant misshapen head. (See section on craniosynostosis).Surgical treatment of the midface deformity is usually done during the pre-school period (age 4-6 yrs).[aomsi.com]
  • One common cause for concern is the treatment of flat head syndrome, a condition that now affects almost half of infants.[technologyinmotion.com]
  • Make informed clinical choices for each patient, from diagnosis and treatment selection through post-treatment strategies and management of complications, with new evidence-based criteria throughout.[books.google.com]


  • Treatment and prognosis Treatment is often with a cranioplasty. Abnormal intracranial pressure may affect neurocognition. Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]
  • Prognosis [ 3 ] The survival of people with Down's syndrome has dramatically increased in the past few decades, largely as a result of improved surgical repair of congenital heart defects.[patient.info]
  • It is therefore uncertain whether, in such cases, karyotyping should be undertaken, especially for those abnormalities that have a high prevalence in the general population and for which the prognosis in the absence of a chromosomal defect is good.[sonoworld.com]
  • On the basis of our experience, patients with TCF12 mutations seem to have a good prognosis.[nature.com]


  • In the last two decades increased knowledge about the structure and function of the human genome has enabled the discovery of the molecular etiologies of most forms of syndromic craniosynostosis, which in turn has allowed for the analysis of normal and[books.google.com]
