Abstract

BACKGROUND: Craniosynostosis, the premature fusion of one or more of the cranial sutures, can occur as a part of a syndrome or as an isolated deformity. When not treated properly it may have major physical and social implications.
STUDY HYPOTHESIS: We assumed that our center's results are similar to those reported in the literature, in terms of gender and anatomic characteristics, and different in terms of the number of syndromic cases. We also assume that only a few patients needed a second surgery and that this medical problem effects quality of life in term of cognitive impairment and aesthetic results.
METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of patients who were treated for craniosynostosis in Soroka University Medical Center between the years 1991-2005.

RESULTS: A total of 63 patients were treated in Soroka during those years: 30 (47.6%) were females and 33 (50.8%) were males; 27 (42.9%) had coronal synostosis, 20 (31.8%) had sagital synostosis, 10 (15.8%) had metopic synostosis, 5 (7.9%) had lambdoid synostosis. A total of 5 (7.9%) cases were syndromic and the rest were isolated; 6 patients (9.5%) needed a second surgery for correction of the defect; 8 out of 30 patients (26.7%) 6 years or older at the present time suffer from attention deficit disorder. Parents' satisfaction from aesthetic results on a scale of 1-5 was 4.77 with SD of 0.504, while the doctors' score was 3.93 with SD 0.980 (p = 0.01).
CONCLUSIONS: Craniosynostosis is a complex surgical problem, however with prompt treatment it may attain high levels of satisfaction among parents and patients. We found high rates 26.7% vs 10% (in the general population) of ADD in children affected by the disease.
