  • You may also want to contact a university or tertiary medical center in your area, because these centers tend to see more complex cases and have the latest technology and treatments.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]
  • Further, the various diseases of bone that are peculiar to children are highlighted and discussed in the light of our current knowledge with regard to causation, clinical signs and treatment.[books.google.com]


  • Prognosis The prognosis of Pfeiffer's syndrome depends on the severity of the associated anomalies.[skullbaseinstitute.com]
  • Treatment and prognosis The overall prognosis can be extremely variable dependent on the presence of other associated anomalies.[radiopaedia.org]
  • If present, proximal metacarpal synostosis should also be separated early to improve mobility of the fifth ray Outcomes: Prognosis Hand function and prognosis is best with the combination of thumb and little finger separation.[posna.org]
  • Those with type 2 have the distinctive cloverleaf skull syndrome (kleeblattschädel deformity) with severe CNS complications and a poor prognosis. Those with type 3 lack the cloverleaf skull but have CNS defects and a similarly poor prognosis.[consultant360.com]
  • Favorable outcomes can be attained but the prognosis still remains poor in severe cases because of the risk of respiratory and neurological complications.[drugsdetails.com]


  • Etiology The locus associated with SD3 maps to 6q21-q23. Mutations in the GJA1 gene may be causative.[orpha.net]

  • The etiology of craniosynostosis is heterogeneous. Isolated occurrence with unknown etiology is common, mostly affecting the sagittal suture.[ommbid.mhmedical.com]

  • You will have several follow-up appointments, and after the cast is removed, your child will be fitted for a splint to help prevent scarring and contracture (shortening of tissue).[craniofacialteamtexas.com]
  • Cases of syndactyly usually do not require repair; the aim of web reconstruction for syndactyly of the foot is purely cosmetic [ 10 ], to prevent the associated significant psychological morbidity and allow the patient to gain social acceptance [ 11 ][omicsonline.org]
  • Too early fusion of skull bones may prevent skull normal growth affecting the shape of a face and head. Abnormalities of skull bones may lead to high forehead, bulging and wide-set eyes, underdeveloped upper jaw and a beaked nose.[drugsdetails.com]
  • Early repair can prevent the boney fusion of fingers from causing worsening finger deformities, and allow the digits to grow. Complete, complex syndactyly, before (left) and after (middle and right) surgery.[chop.edu]
