This work was conducted to study the postnatal progression of suture and synchondrosal closure and to illustrate normal development and progression in the chondrocranium suture lines throughout the first 18 years of life using 3 mm axial CT cuts with bone definition algorithm .
In conclusion, the obtained data should be of assistance to radiologists in the diagnosis of fractures, skeletal dysplasia, and deformities that affect the pediatric chondrocranium.
One attachment is located anterior to the chondrocranium at the anterior trabeculae, another attachment is at the polar bodies, and the third is a posterior attachment at the otic capsule (containing the inner ear).
In the autostylic architecture, the palatoquadrate is essentially fused to the chondrocranium.
Developed in the dermis and capable of bearing rooted teeth, dermal bone was laid down over the entire original chondrocranium on the undersurface of the palatoquadrate and the anterior portion of Meckel's cartilage.
