Surgical treatment for patients with craniosynostosis. Report of 22 cases

Craniosynostosis is a disease characterized by the early closure of one or more cranial sutures associated to a perpendicular deformity to the suture from overgrowth. It can be found isolated o associated to other features, comprising a syndrome (Crouzon’s, Apert’s, Pfeiffer’s, etc.).

We present 22 treated patients at Hospital Guillermo Grant Benavente from 2008 to 2010. 18 (82%) cranial remodelings were performed, 15 (68.2%) of those with bilateral fronto-orbital advancement; and 4 (18.2%) patients were treated with distraction springs. 83.3% of the remodelings were fixed with reabsorbable plaques. The esthetic result was favorable in every case. 1 serious complication was found, a cerebrovascular accident in a Scaphocephaly remodeling, associated to a clotting disorder.
