Significant Factors Influencing the Effectiveness of Cranial Remolding Orthoses in Infants With Deformational Plagiocephaly.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Prosthetics-Orthotics Program, School of Health Professions, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

Infants with deformational plagiocephaly may be indicated for a cranial remolding orthosis (CRO) depending on the severity of deformation. Studies have found torticollis and prematurity to be risk factors for the development of deformational plagiocephaly and indicate younger infants have faster and greater correction. However, clinical decisions about which infants should be recommended for CRO treatment differ among healthcare providers and insurance coverage criteria vary. Read More

Unique finding in congenital muscular torticollis: Clinic screening on the neck of one day old neonate and ultrasonographic imaging from birth through 3 years of follow-up.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(11):e14794

Department of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Shenzhen Children's Hospital, Shenzhen.

Congenital muscular torticollis (CMT) is a common musculoskeletal abnormality in children, which has been characterized by unclarified pathological changes in the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) and various hypothetical etiologies. There are 2 main hypothetical etiologies for CMT in the literature: 1 infers that CMT may represent the sequela of an intrauterine or perinatal compartment syndrome, and the other regard CMT as a maldevelopment of the fetal SCM.To better understand the etiopathogenesis of CMT, we screened the necks of 1-day-old newborns that may potentially have CMT for evidence of SCM trauma or tumor.
