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.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
