  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Many types of operation for the relief of craniosynostosis have been described since Lannelogue and Lane in 1890 first used linear craniectomies for the relief of craniosynostosis. While the linear craniectomy has been used widely during the past, the procedure was inadequate for the treatment of premature craniosynostosis in early infancy. The rapid bone regeneration has resulted in early reclosure of artificially created sutures for ineffective decompression before the period of rapid brain growth has been completed, and frequently secondary operation was necessitated.
