Abstract

Anterior cranial plagiocephaly, depending on the early hemicoronal suture fusion, is the most relevant form of plagiocephaly in terms of clinical implications. Its estimated incidence ranges between 0.4 and 1 per 1,000 live births. In the present report, we aim at validating the classification of Di Rocco and Velardi, proposing a scheme based on basicranium analysis using CT scans and its predictive value by evaluating the developmental characteristics of a population of adult subjects affected by anterior plagiocephaly who had underwent the surgical correction in the first months of life.
