Abstract: Posterior distraction was successfully performed in 10 patients including babies as young as 3 months of age. It achieved a reduction in turricephaly, an improvement in the cephalic index, and a resolution of raised ICP. We have customised our surgical technique to address individual patient needs. The use of distraction techniques in the occiput appears to increase the reliability of expansion in this region.
