Introduction: Several studies have highlighted differences in the facial features in a White European population. Genetics appear to have a major influence on normal facial variation, and environmental factors are likely to have minor influences on face shape directly or through epigenetic mechanisms. Aim: The aim […]Read More
Cranial growth in infants. A longitudinal three-dimensional analysis of the first months of life. P Meyer-Marcotty, F Kunz, T Schweitzer et al.
Date: June 2018. Source: Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, Volume 46, Issue 6, pp 987-993. Objective: In the first months of life, any deviation from a physiological growth pattern can cause skull deformity. As there has not been any longitudinal three-dimensional (3D) study investigating the physiological growth of the infant skull, the aim of the present […]Read More

Radiation-free 3D head shape and volume evaluation after endoscopically assisted strip craniectomy followed by helmet therapy for trigonocephaly. G de Jonga, M Tolhuisen, J Meulstee, F van der Heijden, E van Lindert, W Borstlap, T Maal, H Delye.
Date: February 2017 (Online). Source: Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery. Introduction: Radiation-free 3D post-operative sequential follow-up in craniosynostosis is hindered by the lack of consistent markers restricting evaluation to subjective comparison. However, using the computed cranial focal point (CCFP), it is possible to perform correct sequential image superposition and objective evaluation. We used this technique for […]Read More
