UCSQ Method Applied on 3D Photogrammetry: Non-Invasive Objective Differentiation Between Synostotic and Positional Plagiocephaly
CONCLUSIONS: UCSQ objectively captures shape of synostotic and positional plagiocephaly using 3D photogrammetry, we therefore developed a suitable method to objectively differentiate UCS from PPP using radiation-free methods.PMID:35538856 | DOI:10.1177/10556656221100679 (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Long-term ophthalmological outcomes in patients with anterior plagiocephaly managed with a fronto-orbital advancement procedure
CONCLUSION: In the years following fronto-orbital advancement for non-syndromic anterior plagiocephaly, refractive errors and oculomotor disorders are frequently encountered, mainly contralateral astigmatism and strabismus with both horizontal deviation and ispilateral hypertropia.PMID:35431098 | DOI:10.1016/j.jfo.2021.04.012 (Source: Journal Francais d Ophtalmologie)

Reference Values for Cranial Morphology Based on Three-dimensional Scan Analysis in 1-month-old Healthy Infants in Japan
Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo). 2022 Apr 1. doi: 10.2176/jns-nmc.2021-0384. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCurrently, molded helmet therapy is used to treat infants with deformational plagiocephaly. However, the indices of normal cranial shape remain unclear, and thus, the prevalence of deformational plagiocephaly is unknown, particularly in Japan. We investigated the reference values for cranial morphological characteristics in 1-month-old Japanese infants using a three-dimensional scanner, to determine the prevalence of deformational plagiocephaly.One hundred fifty-three healthy infants who visited three hospitals (from April 20...

Study of the compression behavior of functionally graded lattice for customized cranial remodeling orthosis
J Mech Behav Biomed Mater. 2022 Mar 23;130:105191. doi: 10.1016/j.jmbbm.2022.105191. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDeformational plagiocephaly is a head deformity that occurs in newborns, treated in severe cases with helmets named cranial remodeling orthoses (CRO). Current CROs can fail to adapt to head growth, causing excessive pressure sores and other complications, and may lead to poor clinical results. In this work, we experimentally and numerically study the compressive behavior of a functionally graded lattice that may be used in future work as a potential inner lining for a CRO with a customized density distribution...

Highlights from the literature
Monitoring and reviewing plagiocephally Infants with deformational plagiocephaly are seen commonly in paediatric clinics and causes parents much worry. Lucina has always relied on a clinical examination and subjective judgement, usually reassuring parents, preventing them from buying expensive correctional helmets but being very wary of identifying craniosynostosis and referring promptly. Watt A et al (Pediatrics 2022;149:e2021051736) have completed a systematic review examining the evidence for non-radiographic screening and monitoring modalities developed to support paediatricians in achieving earlier diagnosis and more ...
