Abstract

In this article, we review some of the traditional techniques used to treat craniosynostosis. In addition to sharing our current approach to treating craniosynostosis with open techniques, we discuss our opinions on the evolving roles of newer modalities such as spring-assisted cranioplasty and cranial vault expansion using distraction osteogenesis.
