As a baby she was diagnosed with bicoronal
craniosynostosis, which prevents the skull and brain from developing normally.
The mean procedure length was 124.5 +-17.9 minutes.In 26 (43.33%) patients bicoronal
craniotomy was performed where wide exposure was needed and in 34 (56.67%) unilateral subfrontal approach was adopted.
The open approach via a bicoronal
incision or a pretrichial incision for exposure of the frontonasal-orbital complex has been the most common approach for modification of this bone.
Modified Gillies approach for zygomatic arch fracture reduction in the setting of bicoronal
Diagnosed with a rare condition called Bicoronal
Craniosynostosis after birth, where the skull fuses too early, Peter Smith's daughter, Beth, has had several life-saving operations at Birmingham Children's Hospital to reduce the pressure on her brain.
We performed a craniotomy using the bicoronal
The patient underwent surgery with a trans-sinusal frontal approach using a bicoronal
incision combined with an anterior midfacial degloving to excise the mass; however, the right orbital and especially the initial intracranial extension did not allow a complete removal of the neoplasm.
Of the first, 5(11.1%) were operated for Unicoronal, 12(26.7%) for Bicoronal
, 16(35.6%) for Saggital, 1(2.2%) for Metopic and 2(4.4%) for Pan-synostosis.
The patient underwent the anterior craniofacial resection with placement of a galeal-pericranial flap; the neurosurgery service performed a bicoronal
bifrontal craniotomy repair of the dura.
After non-sterile registration of the entry location, routine surgical preparation and drape were performed, followed by a bicoronal
