Topic: Craniosynostosis

All articles in Neurosurgical Focus: Video are open access and freely available.

Topic editors: Craig Birgfeld, Federico Di Rocco, Cormac O. Maher, Mark R. Proctor and Matthew D. Smyth

In their introduction to the April issue, the topic editors speak of advances in craniosynostosis surgery over the past decades. Some technological innovations include preoperative models for training and planning surgery, endoscopic approaches, Piezoelectric surgery for bone cutting, external distractors and postoperative springs and orthotics.

In describing the issue, the topic editors state:

“In this exciting video journal dedicated to craniosynostosis, the authors evaluate some of the basic techniques and then describe the use of these new and innovative techniques for the treatment of single-suture and multisuture syndromic synostosis. The reader should be able to appreciate many of the nuances in the treatment of these disease processes and see how surgeons are dealing with the conditions using the new innovations available in the modern era.”
