Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An infant underwent strip craniectomy for unilateral coronal synostosis in 1967. This report presents the cosmetic, functional and psychosocial outcome at 34 years of age. Although aggressive, reconstructive treatment of the various forms of single-suture craniosynostosis is the current standard of care, neither the natural history of these conditions nor the long-term results of treatment have been documented systematically.
