Craniosynostosis refers to the early (premature) fusion of the sutures of the bones of the skull.  Premature fusing of the sutures deforms the skull shape. This is due to changes of the normal growth directions of the skull bones. Additionally the pressure inside the cranial cavity can get elevated in severe synostosis. There is clinical evidence that some cases can progress to vision impairment. significant intellectual development problems are seen in some non corrected children with craniosynostosis.  In addition, abnormal head shape is associated with low self-esteem and behavioral problems.  Correction of these deformities can relieve cranial pressure and in the long-term, improve the child's self-esteem.
