If these treatments fail, consider a salvage procedure like a radioulnar synostosis
as a last resort.
Successful treatment of a radioulnar synostosis
in a Mississippi kite (Ictinia mississippiensis).
In 165 cases, there were 38 cases of unilateral coronal synostosis
, 127 cases of bilateral deformity, and 45 cases of Crouzon syndrome.
In addition to continued healing of fractures, radiographs demonstrated a new finding of synostosis
at the PRUJ (Figure 3(c)).
Basilar impression, occipitocervical synostosis
, odontoid anomalies, and Klippel-Feil syndrome do not present symptomatically at birth and are not known to cause severe spinal cord compression requiring mechanical ventilation .
Brain three-dimensional computerized tomography imaging revealed synostosis
in the coronal and sagittal sutures and maxillary and mandibular hypoplasia (Picture 4).
Other complications like deep infection, synostosis
, plate fracture, compartment syndrome, or iatrogenic neurological or vascular damage were not found.
Matthew was born with a rare cranial birth defect called metopic synostosis
, a condition that affects one in 15,000 babies, according to data from Boston Children's Hospital.
A tibiofibular synostosis
(yellow arrows) is seen at the level of the proximal syndesmosis.
A common condition, DP has been referred to by many names, such as deformational posterior plagiocephaly, positional plagiocephaly, posterior plagiocephaly, occipital plagiocephaly, nonsynostosis plagiocephaly, or plagiocephaly without synostosis
(Flannery, Looman, & Kemper, 2012; Laughlin, Luerssen, & Dias, for the Committee on Practice and Ambulatory Medicine Section on Neurological Surgery, 2011; Looman & Flannery, 2012; Shweikeh, Nuno, Danielpour, Krieger, & Drazin, 2013).
Antley-Bixler syndrome is also a rare condition that associate craniosynostosis, radiohumeral synostosis
, joint contractures and bowed long bones.
(5) PHAVER syndrome: spina bifida, pterygia, heart defects, segmentation defects of the spine, and radioulnar synostosis
. Autosomal (1) DiGeorge syndrome: hypocalcemia, parathyroid dominant hypoplasia, thymic hypoplasia, conotruncal cardiac defects, and facial features.
