Plagiocephalies: from diagnosis to treatment
Cranial dysmorphisms (commonly, plagiocephalies) in infants are much more common that is thought; plagiocephaly alone affects almost 50% of infants. In some cases (15-20%), consequences may be serious and, therefore, it is necessary to determine the type of deformity and its cause. How to scientifically recognize and assess the different types of dysmorphism, treatment timing and methods?
Although there are no shared guidelines for the treatment of cranial deformities, the aim is to establish an optimum pathway based on the experience on 1000 monitored and treated children, with a multidisciplinary view involving. paediatric neurosurgeons, infantile neuropsychiatrists, physiatrists, neonatologists, paediatricians and, for the instrumental part, biomedical engineers.
