Abstract

In BriefThe long-term results of treating infants with metopic craniosynostosis by using endoscopic, minimally invasive techniques are reported. The impetus arose from the lack of consistent and favorable outcomes associated with calvarial vault remodeling techniques and from the very traumatic and invasive nature of these procedures. The results presented show excellent and consistent long-term outcomes that are superior to traditional methods and are associated with minimal trauma, blood loss, and anesthetic exposure, and with short surgical times.

KEYWORDS:

EBL = estimated blood loss; FOA = fronto-orbital advancement; IFZD = interfrontozygomatic distance; IPD = interpupillary distance; LOS = length of hospital stay; MIS = minimally invasive surgery; craniofacial; craniosynostosis; endoscopy; metopic; trigonocephaly
