Metopic Suture Synostosis


Presentation

  • Besides esthetic results, we present 25 consecutive pediatric cases operated upon metopic suture synostosis with a focus on the child's motor, speech, and neurocognitive development.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The anomalies are organized by anatomical system and presented in a consistent manner, including details of the clinical presentation, epidemiology, embryology, treatment and prevention for each anomaly.[books.google.de]
  • @article{f4267f3d41d347d7a2d380f12903ea2a, title "Influence of metopic suture fusion associated with sagittal synostosis", abstract "Some patients with sagittal synostosis present with a fused metopic suture.[uncch.pure.elsevier.com]
  • Accurate diagnosis is very important given the fact that surgical interventions present a significant risk to the patient.[cappskids.org]
  • Present On Admission POA Help "Present On Admission" is defined as present at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs — conditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation, or outpatient surgery[icd10data.com]
Surgical Procedure
  • If, after evaluation, your child is determined to need treatment for his metopic synostosis, members of his Craniofacial Anomalies Program care team may include: neurosurgeons , who perform surgical procedures on a child’s brain, spinal cord or nerves[childrenshospital.org]
  • procedure developed in the San Jose Pediatric University Hospital for the management of syndromic synostosis of the metopic suture in a patient clinically diagnosed with Saethre–Chotzen syndrome .[journals.lww.com]
  • The proper surgical procedure will help with restructuring the posterior fossa in order to provide adequate space for normal brain development, as well as help restore the symmetry of the skull.[grinerplasticsurgery.com]
  • Invasive Surgical Procedure Incision from the top of the ear to the top of the ear The more invasive, or traditional repair, is typically done when the child is 6-12 months in age.[pediatricneurosurgery.org]
  • Anyone who has had multiple surgical procedures might have such an allergy.[cincinnatichildrens.org]
Physician
  • Outcome analysis for esthetic results showed a high degree of satisfaction by the parents and treating physicians in 23 cases (92 %). Preoperative evaluation revealed neurodevelopmental deficits in 10 children (40 %; six mild, four moderate degree).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A thorough physical examination by the primary care physician is necessary.[aafp.org]

  • History [ edit ] In former times people born with malformed skulls were rejected based upon their appearance. [1] [60] This still persists today in various parts of the world even though the intellectual development is often normal. [2] The Austrian physician[en.wikipedia.org]
Falling
  • Children with metopic synostosis usually fall into one of three categories. No other malformations are present and normal development is expected.[sickkids.ca]
  • At the end of day however severe your DS craniosynostosis turns out to be the choice to operate will always fall to you as his parent, the doctors can give you figures and advise you but it will always ultimately be your call.[mumsnet.com]
  • Less common is a restriction of head growth with the measurements “falling off” the pediatrician’s growth curves. Most often, an examination of head shape can differentiate craniosynostosis from positional plagiocephaly.[neurosurgery.ufl.edu]
Pathologist
  • All clinicians and scientists interested in birth defects, including pediatricians, geneticists, genetic counselors, obstetricians, and pediatric pathologists, will find this book to be an invaluable source of information.[books.google.de]
Rigor

Alopecia
  • The involvement of the PF explains why such complications are more frequent in syndromic CS Gómez-López-Hernández syndrome is a rare genetic disease characterized by scalp alopecia with trigeminal anesthesia, brachycephaly or turribrachycephaly, midface[slideshare.net]
Lacrimation
  • Some of these bones—the occipital, parietal, frontal, in the neurocranium, and the nasal, lacrimal, the skull also contains sinus cavities and numerous foramina.[wikivisually.com]
Large Anterior Fontanels
  • Metopic suture is located in the middle of the forehead and reaches from the large anterior fontanelle to the base of the nose. It enables the growth of both frontal lobes forward and to the sides, and participates upon the formation of the orbit.[kraniosynostoza.fno.cz]
Suggestibility
  • Our findings suggest that the normal continuum may begin earlier than the literature suggests. In the setting of sagittal synostosis, the influence of metopic suture fusion and treatment is best determined by individual morphologic analysis.[uncch.pure.elsevier.com]
  • As recently concerns about harmful effects of ionising radiation in children have been raised, some authors have suggested the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a helpful alternative in preoperative imaging of patients with isolated metopic synostosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Considering the family history, this is suggestive for a novel, variable autosomal dominant craniosynostosis syndrome with possibility of gonadal mosaicism or non-penetrance.[nature.com]
  • Although it is rare for single suture craniosynostoses to be passed from generation to generation in families, there are some reports suggesting heredity may play a role.[med.unc.edu]
  • The findings suggest that the skull defect itself does not cause speech and language problems in children with metopic stenosis, but highlight the need for monitoring to assess long-term development in children who have undergone craniofacial surgery,[newswise.com]

Delayed Speech and Language Development
  • The results showed delayed speech and language development in six cases—a rate of 30 percent. By comparison, the overall rate of speech and language difficulties among U.K. children is six percent.[newswise.com]

  • Some children with just a ridge or mild metopic synostosis don’t need any medical treatment. For those who do, surgery has proven to be a successful approach.[childrenshospital.org]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis In general, a single operation is all that is necessary to treat this condition and the cosmetic and clinical outcomes are usually excellent especially for otherwise healthy, nonsyndromic infants.[skullbaseinstitute.com]
  • Prognosis Dependent on cause of craniosynostosis - if secondary then depends on cause of brain injury.[emedicine.medscape.com]
