Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The purposes of this study were to determine the extent of ossification of the orbit following ventral translocation of the fronto-orbital bar and to find out whether age at the time of the procedure and presence of a concomitant syndrome adversely affect ossification. A retrospective review of 27 patients with craniosynostosis was conducted at the St. Louis Children's Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Oklahoma. Patients with preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative three-dimensional computed tomography scans were included. Eighty-eight percent of the lateral orbital wall defects and 92 percent of the defects within the roof of the orbit ossified completely in the postoperative period. When syndromic patients were compared with nonsyndromic patients (based on clinical findings only), three of the 19 syndromic defects and three of the 30 nonsyndromic defects demonstrated incomplete ossification in the lateral orbital wall (p > 0.05). Similarly, two of the 19 syndromic defects and two of the 30 nonsyndromic defects demonstrated incomplete ossification within the roof of the orbit (p > 0.05). With respect to age at the time of the procedure, four of the 37 defects and two of the 12 defects demonstrated incomplete ossification in the lateral orbital wall for age at the time of the procedure less than 12 months and greater than 12 months, respectively (p > 0.05). Similarly, two of the 37 defects and two of the 12 defects had incomplete ossification within the roof of the orbit for age at the time of the procedure less than 12 months versus more than 12 months, respectively (p > 0.05). Ossification of the orbital wall and roof is complete in the majority of cases within 1 year after the procedure, and neither age at the time of the procedure nor presence of a concomitant syndrome adversely affects ossification of the orbit after ventral translocation of the fronto-orbital bandeau.
