A Prospective Study of Cranial Deformity and Delayed Development in Children

Plagiocephaly, the most common form of cranial deformity, has become more prevalent
in recent years. Many authors have described a number of sequelae of poorly defined etiologies,
although several gaps exist in their real scope. This study aimed to analyze the effects of physiotherapy treatments and cranial orthoses on the psychomotor development of infants with cranial deformities,

Significant Factors in Cranial Remolding Orthotic Treatment of Asymmetrical Brachycephaly

This retrospective chart review focuses on determining the most effective time to begin cranial remolding orthosis (CRO) treatment for infants with asymmetrical brachycephaly. Subjects with asymmetrical brachycephaly started CRO treatment between 3 and 18 months of age. These infants had a cranial vault asymmetry index (CVAI) ≥ 3.5 and a cranial index (CI) ≥ 90.

Diagnosis and treatment of positional plagiocephaly

Positional plagiocephaly is increasing in infants. Positional plagiocephaly is an asymmetric deformation of skull due to various reasons; first birth, assisted labor, multiple pregnancy, prematurity, congenital muscular torticollis and position of head. Positional plagiocephaly can mostly be diagnosed clinically and by physical examinations. The simplest way to assess the severity of plagiocephaly is to use a diagonal caliper during physical examination,

Tummy Time and Infant Health Outcomes: A Systematic Review

CONTEXT: The World Health Organization recommends tummy time for infants because of the benefits of improved motor development and reduced likelihood of plagiocephaly. Because of poor uptake of these recommendations, the association of tummy time with other health outcomes requires further investigation.

OBJECTIVE: To review existing evidence regarding the association of tummy time with a broad and specific range of infant health outcomes.

Subjective perception of craniofacial growth asymmetries in patients with deformational plagiocephaly

In recent decades, the incidence of deformational plagiocephaly (DP) has increased significantly [1,2,3,4,5,6,7], which is assumed to mainly be due to the recommendation for infants to sleep in a supine position in order to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome [8

Impact of the Use of the Beanie on the Neurodevelopmental Outcomes of Preterm Infants With Plagiocephaly: A Pilot Study

Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) is the abnormal flattening of the skull. Infants with DP have been found to have abnormal brain shape and asymmetry associated with worse neurodevelopmental outcomes on the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development-III (BSID-III) compared to those without DP. In 2009, the FDA approved a repositioning Beanie, the TortleTM (Tortle Products LLC,
