Premature Fusion of Cranial Sutures (CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS)
MetadataShow full item record
A personal experience in the management of craniosynostosis in 15 Zambian male children has been presented. An important finding of this study was rather late referral of the majority of these patients. The importance of early surgical intervention in the management of craniosynostosis has been stressed. It has been suggested that recent commissioning of the Paedriatic Surgical Centre in Lusaka is likely to result in prompt referral of patients with surgically correctable paediatric disorders.
