Sagittal Extended Strip: Emelyn

Sagittal Craniosynostosis Top-250Emelyn was 10 weeks old when she was referred to us by a neurosurgeon for evaluation of her head shape. Her preoperative photos on the left show that her forehead was tall and full and that her head was abnormally narrow and long from front to back. In the normal infant skull, the back half of the skull is wider than the width of the skull at the temple area.

She was diagnosed with sagittal suture craniosynostosis, and we treated with an extended-strip craniectomy and postoperative helmet therapy. Her one-year postoperative photos at right show an impressive improvement in the proportions of the back of the skull in the vertical and transverse dimensions.
