Midpalatal suture of osteopetrotic (op/op) mice exhibits immature fusion. (1/206)

The midpalatal suture was observed histologically in both toothless osteopetrotic (op/op) and normal (control) mice. The normal mice had a mature sutural structure, which consists of a well-developed cartilage cell zone and palatal bone. In contrast, the thickness of the cartilage cell zone was substantially greater in the op/op mice than that in the controls. Moreover, the cartilage cells in the op/op mice were frequently found in the palatal bone as well as in the sutural space, exhibiting an imperfect fusion. It seems that immature fusion at the sutural interface in the op/op mice is related to a decrease in biting or masticatory force accompanied by the failure of tooth eruption in addition to an essential defect in osteoclast differentiation, which is a congenital symptom in op/op mice.  (+info)

Craniofacial sutures: morphology, growth, and in vivo masticatory strains. (2/206)

The growth and morphology of craniofacial sutures are thought to reflect their functional environment. However, little is known about in vivo sutural mechanics. The present study investigates the strains experienced by the internasal, nasofrontal, and anterior interfrontal sutures during masticatory activity in 4-6-month-old miniature swine (Sus scrofa). Measurements of the bony/fibrous arrangements and growth rates of these sutures were then examined in the context of their mechanical environment. Large tensile strains were measured in the interfrontal suture (1,036 microepsilon +/- 400 SD), whereas the posterior internasal suture was under moderate compression (-440 microepsilon +/- 238) and the nasofrontal suture experienced large compression (-1,583 microepsilon +/- 506). Sutural interdigitation was associated with compressive strain. The collagen fibers of the internasal and interfrontal sutures were clearly arranged to resist compression and tension, respectively, whereas those of the nasofrontal suture could not be readily characterized as either compression or tension resisting. The average linear rate of growth over a 1-week period at the nasofrontal suture (133.8 micrometer, +/- 50.9 S.D) was significantly greater than that of both the internasal and interfrontal sutures (39.2 micrometer +/- 11.4 and 65. 5 micrometer +/- 14.0, respectively). Histological observations suggest that the nasofrontal suture contains chondroid tissue, which may explain the unexpected combination of high compressive loading and rapid growth in this suture.  (+info)

Craniofacial skeletal abnormalities in anomalous calves with clefts of the face. (3/206)

Thirteen anomalous calves with clefts of the face were morphologically examined, and craniofacial skeletons were studied in detail. According to the type and site of the cleft, four groups could be distinguished: median cleft lip and jaw (CLJ); median cleft lip, jaw, and palate (CLJP); lateral CLJ; and cleft palate (CP), including unilateral and bilateral type. Craniofacial skeletal abnormalities were observed in several bones at the roof, wall, and floor of the nasal cavity and at the boundary portion between the nasal and cranial cavities. Fissure formation at the cranial sutures, partial absence of the nasal process of the incisive bone, and opening of the bony palate were characteristic changes in median CLJ and CLJP, lateral CLJ, and CP, respectively. Furthermore, various associated changes were recognized in the median and paramedian skeletal elements of the face and other organs. The morphological changes of craniofacial skeletons with various types of clefts of the face depended on the site and degree of the cleft formation and reflected developmental errors of the facial embryonic segments. These changes would suggest disorders of the correlated development of facial processes and of other fetal organs of the face. For these conditions, etiologically hereditary cases were negative.  (+info)

Expression patterns of Twist and Fgfr1, -2 and -3 in the developing mouse coronal suture suggest a key role for twist in suture initiation and biogenesis. (4/206)

Sutural growth depends on maintenance of a balance between proliferation of osteogenic stem cells and their differentiation to form new bone, so that the stem cell population is maintained until growth of the skull is complete. The identification of heterozygous mutations in FGFR1, -2 and -3 and TWIST as well as microdeletions of TWIST in human craniosynostosis syndromes has highlighted these genes as playing important roles in maintaining the suture as a growth centre. In contrast to Drosophila, a molecular relationship between human (or other vertebrate) TWIST and FGFR genes has not yet been established. TWIST mutations exert their effect via haploinsufficiency whereas FGFR mutations have a gain-of-function mechanism of action. To investigate the biological basis of FGFR signalling pathways in the developing calvarium we compared the expression patterns of Twist with those of Fgfr1, -2 and -3 in the fetal mouse coronal suture over the course of embryonic days 14-18, as the suture is initiated and matures. Our results show that: (1) Twist expression precedes that of Fgfr genes at the time of initiation of the coronal suture; (2) in contrast to Fgfr transcripts, which are localised within and around the developing bone domains, Twist is expressed by the midsutural mesenchyme cells. Twist expression domains show some overlap with those of Fgfr2, which is expressed in the most immature (proliferating) osteogenic tissue.  (+info)

Location of the glenoid fossa after a period of unilateral masticatory function in young rabbits. (5/206)

Changes in glenoid fossa position and skull morphology after a period of unilateral masticatory function were studied. The right-side maxillary and mandibular molars in twenty-seven 10-day-old rabbits were ground down under general anaesthesia. The procedure was repeated twice a week, until the rabbits were 50 days old. Fourteen rabbits were then killed and 13 left to grow to age 100 days. Nine 50-day-old and sixteen 100-day-old rabbits with unmodified occlusions served as controls. Three-dimensional measurements were made using a machine-vision technique and a video-imaging camera. The glenoid fossa position become more anterior in both groups of animals subjected to molar grinding as compared with controls (P < 0.01 in the 50-day-old group and P < 0.05 in 100-day-old group). In the 100-day-old group the right-side fossa was also in a more inferior position (P < 0.01). The glenoid fossa was more anteriorly located on the right than on the left side of individual animals in the group in which the right-side molars had been ground down (P < 0.001).  (+info)

Strain in the braincase and its sutures during function. (6/206)

The skull is distinguished from other parts of the skeleton by its composite construction. The sutures between bony elements provide for interstitial growth of the cranium, but at the same time they alter the transmission of stress and strain through the skull. Strain gages were bonded to the frontal and parietal bones of miniature pigs and across the interfrontal, interparietal and coronal sutures. Strains were recorded 1) during natural mastication in conjunction with electromyographic activity from the jaw muscles and 2) during stimulation of various cranial muscles in anesthetized animals. Vault sutures exhibited vastly higher strains than did the adjoining bones. Further, bone strain primarily reflected torsion of the braincase set up by asymmetrical muscle contraction; the tensile axis alternated between +45 degrees and -45 degrees depending on which diagonal masseter/temporalis pair was most active. However, suture strains were not related to overall torsion but instead were responses to local muscle actions. Only the coronal suture showed significant strain (tension) during jaw opening; this was caused by the contraction of neck muscles. All sutures showed strain during jaw closing, but polarity depended on the pattern of muscle usage. For example, masseter contraction tensed the coronal suture and the anterior part of the interfrontal suture, whereas the temporalis caused compression in these locations. Peak tensile strains were larger than peak compressive strains. Histology suggested that the skull is bent at the sutures, with the ectocranial surface tensed and the endocranial surface predominantly compressed. Collectively, these results indicate that skulls with patent sutures should be analyzed as complexes of independent parts rather than solid structures.  (+info)

Trigonocephaly in rabbits with familial interfrontal suture synostosis: the multiple effects of premature single-suture fusion. (7/206)

Previous studies from our laboratory have characterized the craniofacial morphology and growth patterns of an inbred strain of rabbits with autosomal dominant coronal suture synostosis. A number of rabbit perinates from this colony have been collected sporadically over a 5-year period with premature interfrontal suture synostosis. The present study describes the very early onset of craniofacial dysmorphology of these rabbits and compares them to similar-aged normal control rabbits. A total of 40 perinatal New Zealand White rabbits were used in the present study. Twenty-one comprised the sample with interfrontal suture synostosis and ranged in age from 27 to 38 days postconception (term = 31 days) with a mean age of 33.53 days (+/-2.84 days). Nineteen rabbits served as age-matched, normal controls (mean age = 33.05 days +/-2.79 days). Lateral and dorsoventral radiographs were collected from each rabbit. The radiographs were traced, computer digitized, and 12 craniofacial measurements, angles, and indices were obtained. Mean measures were compared using an unpaired Student's t-test. All synostosed rabbits were stillborn or died shortly after birth. Grossly, these rabbits exhibited extreme frontal bossing, trigonocephaly with sagittal keeling, and midfacial shortening. No somatic anomalies were noted. Radiographically, rabbits with interfrontal suture synostosis had significantly (P < 0.05) narrower bifrontal widths, shorter cranial vault lengths, kyphotic cranial base angles, and different cranial vault indices (shapes) compared to controls. Results reveal severe and early pathological and compensatory cranial vault changes associated with premature interfrontal suture synostosis in this rabbit model. The 100% mortality rate noted in this condition may be related to the inheritance of a lethal genetic mutation or to neural compression from reduced intracranial volume. Results are discussed in light of current pathogenic hypotheses for human infants with premature metopic suture synostosis.  (+info)

Compressive force promotes chondrogenic differentiation and hypertrophy in midpalatal suture cartilage in growing rats. (8/206)

Midpalatal suture cartilage (MSC) is secondary cartilage located between the bilateral maxillary bones and has been utilized in the analysis of the biomechanical characteristics of secondary cartilage. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of compressive force on the differentiation of cartilage in midpalatal suture cartilage in rats. Forces of various magnitudes were applied to the midpalatal suture cartilage in 4-week-old male Wistar rats for 1, 2, 4, 7, or 14 days, mediated through the bilateral 1st molars using orthodontic wires. The differentiation pathways in the MSC cells were examined by immunohistochemistry for the differentiation markers type I, type II and type X collagen, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), chondroitin-4-sulfate, chondroitin-6-sulfate and keratan sulfate. Histologically and immunohistochemically, the midpalatal suture cartilage in control rats had the characteristic appearance of secondary cartilage. In the experimental groups, the center of the midpalatal suture cartilage that contained osteo-chondro progenitor cells seemed to become mature cartilage and its immuno-reaction to type II and X collagen and GAGs increased as the experiment progressed. This differentiation was dependent upon the magnitude and duration of the force applied to the midpalatal suture cartilage; i.e., cartilaginous differentiation progressed more rapidly as the applied force increased. The present results suggest that the differentiation of osteo-chondro progenitor cells into mature and hypertrophic chondrocytes in the precartilaginous cell layer is promoted by compressive force.  (+info)

Maxillary expansion is one of the earliest methods of obtaining space used in the field of orthodontics. Maturing craniofacial sutures along with the increase in bone density and rigidity are main causes of high resistance of the maxilla to transversal expansion forces applied to the midpalatal suture through orthodontic appliances. Fifty-three patients, with a mean age of 16.4 years and a diagnosed transverse plane orthodontic anomaly were included in this study and divided in two groups: male group and female group. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) was used for measurements conducted in order to determine bone density before and after jaw expansion in different segments of the midpalatal suture: anterior, middle and posterior. In males, slightly higher bone density values were observed in the midpalatal suture than in females before and after maxillary expansion, with average values ranging from 128.5 Hounsfield units (HU) to 672.9 HU. Bone density along the maxillary suture plays an ...
Metopism is the condition of having a persistent metopic suture, or persistence of the frontal metopic suture in the adult human skull. The premature fusion of cranial sutures named craniosynostosis, it is simple when only one cranial suture is involved and compound when two or more cranial sutures are involved. Metopism is the opposite of craniosynostosis. The main factor of the metopic suture is to increase the volume of the anterior cranial fossa. The frontal bone includes the forehead, and the roofs of the orbits (bony sockets) of the eyes. The frontal bone has vertical portion (squama) and horizontal portion (orbital part). Some adults have a metopic or frontal suture in the vertical portion. In uterine period in right and left half of frontal region of the fetus there is a membrane tissue. On each half a primary ossification center appears about the end of the second month of the fetus. Primary ossification center extends to form the corresponding half of the vertical part (squama) and ...
CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect of the Skull (which may affect the Brain) that is characterized by the premature closure of one or more of the fibrous joints between the bones of the Skull (called the cranial sutures) before Brain growth is complete. While the premature fusion of the cranial sutures results in disproportionate growth of the cranial bones, it may also affect the growth of the facial bones. When a suture is fused there is no growth in a plain perpendicular to the line of the suture. The abnormally shaped Skull that results is due to the Brain not being able to grow in its natural shape because of the closure. Instead it compensates with growth in areas of the Skull where the cranial sutures have not yet closed.. The Skull has two different components, the first of which forms the vault of the Cranium and is called the membranous part. The other portion, the chondrocranium forms the Base of the Skull. After a certain age there is little likelihood of ...

During craniofacial development, the Hedgehog (HH) signaling pathway is essential for mesodermal tissue patterning and differentiation. The Hedgehog family consists of three protein ligands: Sonic Hedgehog (SHH), Indian Hedgehog (IHH), and Desert Hedgehog (DHH), of which two are expressed in the craniofacial complex (IHH and SHH). Dysregulations in HH signaling are well documented to result in a wide range of craniofacial abnormalities, including holoprosencephaly, hypotelorism, and cleft lip/palate. Furthermore, mutations in HH effectors, co-receptors, and ciliary proteins result in skeletal and craniofacial deformities. Cranial suture morphogenesis is a delicate developmental process that requires control of cell commitment, proliferation and differentiation. This review focuses on both what is known and what remains unknown regarding HH signaling in cranial suture morphogenesis and intramembranous ossification. As demonstrated from murine studies, expression of both SHH and IHH is critical to the

METHODS: High-resolution 3D CT scans obtained in normal infants (age 0-24 months) were retrospectively reviewed. Calvarial measurements obtained from advanced imaging ...
The joints between the craniofacial bones (sutures) are vital for proper brain and craniofacial development and have recently been identified as a niche for stem cells. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Birth Defects Study has published data suggesting that environmental exposures including maternal thyroid diseases, maternal nicotine use, and use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in pregnant mothers may exacerbate incidence and or severity of craniofacial anomalies including craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect defined as the premature fusion of the suture(s) of the skull occurring in 1:1800-2500 births. A proposed mechanism of craniosynostosis is the disruption of the balance of proliferation and differentiation of cells in the perisutural area leading to bone overgrowth. The newly identified stem cell population characterized as Gli1+ may be the target of pharmacological exposures that result in aberrant craniofacial growth. For these ...

There are four major sutures and one of them is the coronal suture. These sutures are what connect the brains frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital bones. Though it looks like the brain is one large bone, there are actually a number of major bones in the brain that are connected together. These bony plates covering the brain are being held together by a fibrous material which is called sutures. In this article, what we will be discussing about is the coronal suture and its function..

The upper jaw holds the key in many ways to facial beauty and proper function of the lower face and teeth. It should be wide and full to accommodate all fourteen normal teeth (excluding third molars) in proper alignment and provide proper lip support. When the patient is giving a full smile, he or she should not show an excessively gummy smile or expose dark triangles between the teeth and the cheeks. This result can be accomplished with slow maxillary expansion (SPE), as the cranial sutures, including the mid-palatal suture, remain viable throughout life.. The following case is a good example of the use of FFO to expand the maxilla to an ideal shape to create a handsome, movie star smile. This patient was 16 years old when treatment began. He had substantial crowding of his front teeth. His upper jaw was narrower than what is considered ideal. Traditional orthodontics typically would have recommended the removal of four first bicuspid teeth and then straightening of the remaining teeth with ...
Craniosynostosis. It often is related to the development of the bones of the skull but can also involve the surrounding tissues of the scalp. The borders where these plates come together are called sutures or suture lines. Diseases or conditions that cause an abnormal increase in the pressure within the head can cause the sutures to spread apart. Consult with your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. The result is a symmetrically shaped head. Other tests that may be required are blood tests and a spinal tap. The larger anterior fontanelle lies at the intersection of the sagittal, coronal, and metopic sutures and closes by the end of the second year. There is no one definitive method for preventing suture separation. We just noticed today that my baby has what seems to be a separation of the skull on the left side of her head, running at a slight angle vertically. Correspondingly, the size of the cranium of an infant born at term is 40 percent of adult size; by seven years, this increases to 90 ...

During postnatal calvarial growth the brain grows gradually and the overlying bones and sutures accommodate that growth until the later juvenile stages. The whole process is coordinated through a complex series of biological, chemical and perhaps mechanical signals between various elements of the craniofacial system. The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent a computational model can accurately predict the calvarial growth in wild-type (WT) and mutant type (MT) Fgfr2C342Y/+ mice displaying bicoronal suture fusion. A series of morphological studies were carried out to quantify the calvarial growth at P3, P10 and P20 in both mouse types. MicroCT images of a P3 specimen were used to develop a finite element model of skull growth to predict the calvarial shape of WT and MT mice at P10. Sensitivity tests were performed and the results compared with ex vivo P10 data. Although the models were sensitive to the choice of input parameters, they predicted the overall skull growth in the WT and MT

At a deep level of our physiological functioning all healthy, living tissues subtly breathe with the motion of life - a phenomenon that produces rhythmic impulses which can be palpated by sensitive hands. The presence of these subtle rhythms in the body was discovered by osteopath Dr William Sutherland over 100 years ago, after he had a remarkable insight while examining the specialized articulations of cranial bones. Contrary to popular belief Dr Sutherland realized that cranial sutures were, in fact, designed to express small degrees of motion. He undertook many years of research during which he demonstrated the existence of this motion and eventually concluded it is essentially produced by the bodys inherent life force, which he referred to as the Breath of Life. Furthermore, Dr Sutherland discovered that the motion of cranial bones he first discovered is closely connected to subtle movements that involve a network of interrelated tissues and fluids at the core of the body; including ...

Squama (squama frontalis).-Surfaces.-The external surface (Fig. 134) of this portion is convex and usually exhibits, in the lower part of the middle line, the remains of the frontal or metopic suture; in infancy this suture divides the bone into two, a condition which may persist throughout life. On either side of this suture, about 3 cm. above the supraorbital margin, is a rounded elevation, the frontal eminence (tuber frontale). These eminences vary in size in different individuals, are occasionally unsymmetrical, and are especially prominent in young skulls; the surface of the bone above them is smooth, and covered by the galea aponeurotica. Below the frontal eminences, and separated from them by a shallow groove, are two arched elevations, the superciliary arches; these are prominent medially, and are joined to one another by a smooth elevation named the glabella. They are larger in the male than in the female, and their degree of prominence depends to some extent on the size of the frontal ...

Craniosynostosis is a congenital malformation characterized by premature closure of cranial sutures. The premature closure of the cranial sutures hinders the growth of the skull, brains and face. Craniosynostosis is 1 in 2500 newborns and is for approximately 40% of patients a part of a syndrome such as Apert syndrome, Crouzon / Pfeiffer, Saethre-Chotzen and Muenke. The treatment of syndromic or complex craniosynostosis craniofacial comprises a correction within the first year of life. Depending on the syndrome, multiple corrections of the skull, face hands and feet occur. Besides the appearance, the skull abnormality, hand and foot abnormalities, and brain abnormalities may occur. These brain abnormalities can be congenital, such as abnormalities of the corpus callosum or acquired, such as hydrocephalus ...

Osteoclasts demonstrate ontogenetic changes in site specificity. Figure 3 and Table 1 clearly show that TRAP-positive osteoclasts are absent during initial postnatal development. This does not preclude the presence of osteoclasts at this time. In fact, Rice et al. (1997) have shown MMP-9-positive osteoclasts at these ages. The probable reason for this is because the calvarial bone being deposited at these newborn stages is low in mineral content. The matrix metalloproteinase, MMP-9, is thought to be sufficient for the early requirements of bone resorption. Later in postnatal development as bone becomes more densely mineralized, TRAP-positive osteoclasts would be required for resorption. Congruent with this explanation, osteoclasts are observed along concave and straight sagittal suture margins at 10 days postnatal. By 21 days postnatal, one can observe osteoclasts along convex margins as well. The occurrence of osteoclasts along convex and concave regions increases incrementally until 42 days ...

Todays sutures are the result of a 4000-year innovation process with regard to their materials and manufacturing techniques, yet little has been done to enhance the therapeutic value of the suture itself. In this review, we explore the historical development, regulatory database and clinical literature of sutures to gain a fuller picture of suture advances to date. First, we examine historical shifts in suture manufacturing companies and review suture regulatory databases to understand the forces driving suture development. Second, we gather the existing clinical evidence of suture efficacy from reviewing the clinical literature and the Food and Drug Administration database in order to identify to what extent sutures have been clinically evaluated and the key clinical areas that would benefit from improved suture materials. Finally, we apply tissue engineering and regenerative medicine design hypotheses to suture materials to identify routes by which bioactive sutures can be designed and passed through

In the paediatric age group, IIH has specific characteristics that differ from those in adults. It could be further divided into 2 age groups with different clinical manifestations and outcomes: children with open cranial sutures and fontanelles, and older children with closed fontanelles.. In infants with open sutures, the most frequent reason for seeking care is a bulging fontanelle, usually detected by the parents, in isolation or possibly associated with irritability. Males predominate in this age band, and triggering factors are often identified, most frequently steroid therapy for bronchitis or upper respiratory tract infections. The outcome is usually good, with IIH resolving spontaneously and without complications in a few days (based in our experience, approximately 1 week), and papilloedema is a rare finding due to the distensibility of the cranial sutures. Given its benign course and outcomes, it is possible to consider close monitoring without additional testing in infants with ...
The Two Types of Surgery. Treating craniosynostosis usually involves surgery to unlock and bones and reshape the skull. Craniosynostosis is a birth defect that can cause problems with a babys head shape and later cognitive ability. McLaurin, R. L., and Matson, D. D. Importance of early surgical treatment of craniosynostosis. Craniosynostosis, which often can be diagnosed soon after birth, requires treatment. A computerized tomography (CT) scan of your babys skull can show whether any sutures have fused. The 2-year-old had received a seven-hour procedure to correct craniosynostosis -- a condition in which joints between the bones of the skull close too early, causing problems with normal brain and skull growth. Craniosynostosis is a condition in which the growth seams in an infants skull close too early, causing problems with normal brain and skull growth. i had surgery for craniosynostosis when i was a newborn. Rarely, a child needs a second surgery because their head returns to its original ...
Craniosynostosis is caused by premature closure of the cranial sutures and an associated growth arrest perpendicular to the involved suture line, resulting in a skull deformity that progresses over time until growth is completed. It is therefore important that this issue be surgically addressed early in infancy. It may be part of the previously noted syndromic paradigm, which is associated with brachydactyly (foreshortened extremities), syndactyly (fusion of the phalanges and obliteration of the natural web spaces), and polydactyly (extra digits). There is a great deal of overlap of phenotypic expression among these subtypes. Craniosynostosis may be caused by a new mutation or display either an autosomal dominant or recessive genetic pattern of inheritance. There is evidence of defects in fibroblast growth factor regions (FGFR) of the genome, resulting in abnormal bridging ossification of mesenchymal tissue. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Extrinsic tension results in FGF-2 release, membrane permeability change, and intracellular Ca++ increase in immature cranial sutures. AU - Yu, Jack C.. AU - Lucas, Jay H.. AU - Fryberg, Karsten. AU - Borke, James L.. PY - 2001/1/1. Y1 - 2001/1/1. N2 - There are numerous studies cataloging the temporal profiles of the various growth factors during the morphogenesis of cranial sutures. There are also many clearly documented mutations of the receptors of some of these growth factors such as fibroblast growth factor (FGF)R-2 and FGFR-3 in clinical craniosynostosis. It is obvious, and often concluded, that growth factors play a role or are involved in craniofacial development. However, precisely what that role is, what causes the changes in the growth factor levels, and why these changes occur in the particular temporal and spatial patterns observed remains elusive. Using simple physics, we applied a plasma membrane disruption model and the principles of complex adaptive systems to ...
General Discussion. The human skull is a complex part of the body. It is key in identification of sex by the size of the Mastoid Process, Supraorbital Torus, tooth size, and the squareness of the mandible amongst others; it can also be used in describing age at death by tooth wear, Cranial Suture closure and general porosity of the bone (Roberts & Manchester 2010, White & Folkens 2005, Jurmain et al 2011). A later post will detail exactly how in further detail.. It has also changed as our species, Homo Sapiens, evolved from earlier hominids. The morphology of the human skull has certainly become more gracile, and as an indicator and outcome of the agricultural revolution, it seems our mandibular size and muscle robusticity has slowly become less pronounced (Larsen 1999: 230, Jurmain et al 2011). As Larsen remarks (1999: 226), it is the influence of environment and mechanical behaviour that helps determine the morphology of the skull, alongside considered genetic factors. It is important we keep ...

A form of craniosynostosis, a primary abnormality of skull growth involving premature fusion of one or more cranial sutures. The growth velocity of the skull often cannot match that of the developing brain resulting in an abnormal head shape and, in some cases, increased intracranial pressure, which must be treated promptly to avoid permanent neurodevelopmental disability ...
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Muenke syndrome: A condition characterized by premature closure of coronal suture of skull during development (coronal craniosynostosis), which affects the shape of the head and face. It may be uni- or bilateral. When bilateral, it is characterized by a skull with a small antero- posterior diameter (brachycephaly), often with a decrease in the depth of the orbits and hypoplasia of the maxillae. Unilateral closure of the coronal sutures leads to flattening of the orbit on the involved side (plagiocephaly). The intellect is normal. In addition to coronal craniosynostosis some affected individuals show skeletal abnormalities of hands and feet, sensorineural hearing loss, mental retardation and respiratory insufficiency ...

The parietal bone articulates with five bones: the frontal, the opposite parietal, the occipital, the temporal, and the sphenoid. Its anterior border, forming the coronal or frontoparietal suture, is denticulate laterally and becomes more serrate medially. The interparietal or sagittal suture formed at the junction of the medial borders of the two parietal bones is deeply denticulate. The sagittal suture becomes more butt-like, sometimes fusing, toward the internal surface while it remains denticulate toward the external surface. This reflects the mechanical design to resist the greater compressional forces near the internal surface and the corresponding tensile forces near the external surface. The posterior border, also deeply denticulate, forms the lambdoidal or parieto-occipital suture. The lateral border forms a small denticulate suture with the mastoid region of the temporal bone. The remaining greater portion of the lateral border forms the squamous suture with the squamous temporal bone ...
Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of Jackson-Weiss syndrome. Comparisons may be useful for a differential diagnosis:. Apert syndrome is a rare disorder inherited as an autosomal dominant genetic trait. This disorder is characterized by fused or webbed fingers and toes (syndactyly), a pointed head (acrocephaly or oxycephaly), other skeletal and facial abnormalities, and intellectual disability. (For more information on this disorder, choose Apert syndrome as your search term in the Rare Disease Database.). Carpenter syndrome belongs to a group of rare genetic disorders known as acrocephalopolysyndactyly (ACPS) disorders. All forms of ACPS are characterized by premature closure of the fibrous joints (cranial sutures) between certain bones of the skull (craniosynostosis), causing the top of the head to appear pointed (acrocephaly); webbing or fusion (syndactyly) of certain fingers or toes (digits); and/or more than the normal number of digits (polydactyly). Carpenter ...

A package for double-armed sutures, particularly ophthalmic sutures, comprising a one-piece folded packet having needle mounting means and suture loop retaining means which are readily accessible when the package is opened. The needle mounting means is preferably removable to allow the suture to be withdrawn from the package with the needles secured therein. The suture loop retaining means is optionally incorporated with the needle mounting means and removable therewith. The package contains a single, double-armed suture with both needles secured in the needle mounting means and with a loop substantially equidistant from each needle retained in the suture loop retaining means so that the suture may be cut at the loop to obtain two single-armed sutures of substantially equal length.
Sutures in unnatural heads We have now enumerated three sutures that more frequently occur in the naturally shaped head. When a skull is lying on its side, these describe the letter H, or rather h. 65 In the heads that vary from the natural structure, the sutures are as follows. 66 Where the anterior eminence of the head is missing (Chapter 5, figure 2), the coronal suture is absent and the lambdoid remains together with the sagittal, which then runs to the middle of the brows [sutura metopica]. Where the posterior eminence is missing (Chapter 5, figure 3), the lambdoid suture is lost and the coronal remains, while the sagittal is extended through the middle of the occiput to the base of the skull. If you imagine this one resting on its occiput, each of the remaining sutures will resemble the letter T; similarly, the sutures of the first unnatural type will resemble a T 67 when it is rested on its forehead. When the anterior and posterior eminences are both missing (Chapter 5, figure 4), the two ...
Primary findings associated with Carpenter syndrome include premature closure of the fibrous joints (cranial sutures) between particular bones in the skull (craniosynostosis), characteristic facial abnormalities, and/or malformations of the fingers and toes (digits). However, associated features may vary in range and severity from one person to another, even among affected members of the same family.. Although researchers have been able to establish a clear syndrome with characteristic or core symptoms, much about the disorder is not fully understood. Several factors including the small number of identified cases, the lack of large clinical studies, and the possibility of other genes influencing the disorder prevent physicians from developing a complete picture of associated symptoms and prognosis. Therefore, it is important to note that affected individuals may not have all of the symptoms discussed below. Parents should talk to their childrens physician and medical team about their child, ...

The causes of craniosynostosis in most infants are unknown. If youve had a baby with craniosynostosis and are planning another pregnancy, you may want to talk to your doctor about genetic counseling. These are the coronal sutures. Symptoms include swelling…, Leg pain is a common symptom of injury or disease affecting the blood vessels, nerves, muscles, joints, soft tissues, or bones. Craniosynostosis can be gene-linked or caused by metabolic diseases (such as rickets or vitamin D deficiency) or an overactive thyroid. Get the iPhone MyHealth app » According to the CDC, recent research also suggests that there is a higher risk for infants whose mothers: To diagnose craniosynostosis, a pediatrician will normally look at and measure the babys head and feel for ridges in the sutures around the skull. This is a flexible tube that the surgeon can use to see the inside of the body during keyhole surgery.

Chirasorb Rapid Braided Violet Sutures are intended for use in Skin closure, Paediatric surgery, Episiotomies, Circumcision, Closure of oral mucosa and Ophthalmic surgery for conjunctival sutures. 24 sutures per pack except for 3m lengths which have 20 sutures per pack. Chirasorb rapid braided is a short-term absorbable, coated, synthetic, multifilament suture made of 90% glycolide and 10% L-lactide. The substances contained in the coating and suture are non-antigenic and non-collagenous. Sterile Chirasorb rapid braided is available in violet and natural. Absorption begins as a loss of tensile strength without appreciable loss of mass. The product elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissues. Progressive loss of tensile strength and absorption of Chirasorb rapid braided occurs by hydrolysis, when the polymer is degraded to glycolic and lactic acids, which are subsequently absorbed and metabolised by the body.

(Cl. 128-3355) This invention relates to surgical suturm, and particularly to the composition of the liquid in which sutures are usually packed and stored. It results from our discovery that sutum formed of absorbable protein such as animal tissue when stored in solutions of critical proportions of the propyl alcohols have unexpected properties and marked advantages over sutures heretofore known. In order to provide surgeons with sutures which are both sterile and soft and therefore ready to use, it has been the practice to pack the suture in a glass tube containin a preserving or conditioning liquid, called tubing fluid, the tube being sealed hermetically either before or after sterilizing the suture, depending on the nature of the suture and the particular ...

Craniosynostosis (from cranio, cranium; + syn, together; + ostosis relating to bone) is a condition in which one or more of the fibrous sutures in an infant (very young) skull prematurely fuses by turning into bone (ossification), thereby changing the growth pattern of the skull. Because the skull cannot expand perpendicular to the fused suture, it compensates by growing more in the direction parallel to the closed sutures. Sometimes the resulting growth pattern provides the necessary space for the growing brain, but results in an abnormal head shape and abnormal facial features. In cases in which the compensation does not effectively provide enough space for the growing brain, craniosynostosis results in increased intracranial pressure leading possibly to visual impairment, sleeping impairment, eating difficulties, or an impairment of mental development combined with a significant reduction in IQ. Craniosynostosis occurs in one in 2000 births. Craniosynostosis is part of a syndrome in 15 to 40% ...

The skull is made up of many bones, 8 in the skull itself and 14 in the face area. They join together to form a solid, bony cavity that protects and supports the brain. The areas where the bones join together are called the sutures.. The bones are not joined together firmly at birth. This allows the head to change shape to help it pass through the birth canal. The sutures get minerals added to them over time and harden, firmly joining the skull bones together.. In an infant, the space where two sutures join forms a membrane-covered soft spot called a fontanelle (fontanel). The fontanelles allow for growth of the brain and skull during an infants first year.. There are normally several fontanelles on a newborns skull. They are located mainly at the top, back, and sides of the head. Like the sutures, fontanelles harden over time and become closed, solid bony areas.. ...

We know that fluids of the body comprise 60-70% of our total body weight and inhabits multiple compartments. These fluids are in a continuous state of communication as well as in flux. There is constant change and renewal.. Studies show, that most cranial sutures (lines between sections of the skull) remain mobile throughout a persons lifespan and most never completely ossify (bind or harden). Living sutures contain connective tissue, blood vessels and nerves. They maintain articular (vein and artery) function and serve as crossroads of metabolic motion and somatic (body) information.. Cranial sacral therapy works with cranial sacral rhythmic impulses. Every 6-12 minutes there is movement of the cerebral spinal (CS) fluid through the body. Cranial sacral therapy connects with those subtle movements of the cranial impulses. By doing certain holds on the scull, spine and sacrum, as well as places throughout the body, the pathways are opened up for the Cerebral spinal fluid to flow freely and ...
The control of motor function, to which much of the human nervous system is committed, is accomplished through the integrated action of a vast array of segmental and suprasegmental motor neurons. As originally conceived by Hughlings Jackson in 1858, purely on the basis of clinical observations, the motor system is organized hierarchically in three levels, each higher level controlling the one below. It was Jacksons concept that the spinal and brainstem neurons represent the lowest, simplest, and most highly organized motor centers; that the motor neurons of the posterior frontal region represent a more complex and less closely organized second motor center; and that the prefrontal parts of the cerebrum are the third and highest motor center. This scheme is still regarded as being essentially correct, although Jackson failed to recognize the importance of the parietal lobe and basal ganglia in motor control. ...
The common heart diseases resulting in a brain abscess are associated with a right to left shunt and include tetralogy of Fallot and transposition of great vessels. Atrial septal defect (ASD) is almost always associated with the left to right shunt and therefore is not a commonly considered risk factor for brain abscess. We report the case of a 29-year-old male, with no symptoms of cardiac disease, who presented with the left posterior frontal pyogenic abscess which led to the detection of a silent ASD. Our case emphasizes the need for a careful evaluation of the source of infection in patients with a brain abscess ...
Craniosynostosis is the premature closure of one or more of the gaps between the developing bones of the skull. This condition is typically discovered by the pediatrician or parents within the first few months of life. For some babies, this diagnosis can best be determined by a trained craniofacial surgeon. The frequency of craniosynostosis is estimated at one per 2,500

Headaches can be one of the most debilitating conditions anyone can have. Headache pain can stem from migraines, which are typically more vascular in nature, to sinus inflammation, to residual pain from trauma associated with concussion, whiplash, or traumatic brain injury. Dr. Jess has first hand experience with post-concussion syndrome due to TBI. After living in extreme pain for over a decade, Dr. Ritegno was just recently able to find one form of treatment that seemed to hold her symptoms at bay. After learning of Nasal Specific, Dr. Ritegno became a trained provider in order to provide relief and comfort to patients with similar pain! This technique involves inflating a small balloon up through each of the nasal sinus cavities in order to manipulate the cranial suture joints. When we breathe, these joints should also expand and contract. After trauma or inflammation to the area, these joints can become jammed, which in turn can cause or worsen headache pain. If you have not found any relief ...

A wire co-extensive with the outer dimensions of the pump passes over the depression forming a space between the wire and the outside surface of the pump in the depression. In this position, the wire forms a suture loop. The surgeon, when suturing the pump of the present invention in place within a pocket of tissue or other similar location, places a suture between the wire and the outside surface of the pump in the depression to secure the pump. In another embodiment, depressions are created in a pump and a soft material is placed in and attached to the depressions. A suture may then be placed through the material of the soft material and the tissue of the patient in a pocket in the tissue of the patient to affixed the pump in the pocket.

  • The citalopram exposure resulted in a dramatically increased risk of suture fusion (craniosynostosis) , alterations to the suture matrix , increased adipogenesis , and a reduction in stem cells within the sutures . (musc.edu)
  • Craniosynostosis is premature fusion of one or more of the sutures in the skull. (chw.org)
  • Craniosynostosis is the premature fusion of the cranial sutures. (medscape.com)
  • It offers excellent imaging of superficial structures, with the potential to confirm or exclude fusion of cranial sutures while avoiding exposure to ionizing radiation in the very young infant. (medscape.com)
  • Patients with Apert Syndrome typically have premature fusion of multiple cranial sutures. (rochester.edu)
  • Meindl and Lovejoy categorised the ectocranial sutures into two sets namely, 4 stages. (lullavie.com)
  • Three age estimation techniques using ectocranial and/or endocranial suture closure are tested on a sample of known age from Spitalfields, London in order to determine the value of cranial suture closure as an indicator of age at death. (lullavie.com)
  • Ectocranial sutures help to determine the age of decreased. (lullavie.com)
  • After migration of the neural crest, the calvarial mesenchyme originates from both the paraxial mesoderm and the migrated cranial neural crest ( Noden, 1983 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • CCD patients suffer from developmental defects in cranial bones. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Craniosynostosis, or premature closure of the cranial sutures , occurs in 1:2,100 children (Lajeunie et al. (freethesaurus.com)
  • Virchow's law dictates that, when premature suture closure occurs, growth of the skull typically is restricted perpendicularly to the fused suture and enhanced in a plane parallel to it, thus trying to provide space for the fast-growing brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compensatory growth in the perpendicular plane occurs on the side of the head with the patent coronal suture, the contralateral side. (wikipedia.org)
  • When HH signaling goes awry, the resultant suite of morphologic abnormalities highlights the important roles of HH signaling in cranial development. (frontiersin.org)
  • Cranial abnormalities in cleidocranial dysplasia including diastatic sutures. (wikipedia.org)
  • During skull ontogenesis, growth centers in the skull base and calvarial bones allow gradual expansion of the cranial vault. (biomedcentral.com)
  • There is evidence to believe that a premature closure in one or more cranial growth centers contribute to the brachycephalic skull morphology in dogs. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Qirui is the leading surgical suture manufacturer in China. (top20sites.com)
  • Since the brain expands rapidly in the first few years of life, premature closure of a cranial suture leads to compensatory calvarial expansion in a plane parallel to the fused suture. (ispub.com)
  • He had characteristic short stature, pigmy like faces, large head with frontal bossing, separated cranial sutures, open fontanelle, beaked nose, receding jaw, hypoplasia of mandible and obtuse mandibular angle, high arched palate and irregular dentition with a Mallampati Grade IV. (ispub.com)
  • 2 , 4 Although forensic science correlates obliteration of sutures with age, the morphologic characteristics of sutures are highly variable, making age estimation difficult to determine. (jaoa.org)
  • The most common surgical repair method, lateral suture stabilization, has a 25% failure rate. (wpi.edu)
  • In conclusion, even if the TTA is the more invasive surgery compared to the lateral suture fixation technique of DeAngelis and exceeds its complication rate by 6,67 %, it achieves better results in the improvement of postoperative lameness degree. (huveta.hu)
  • Nevertheless, SHH and IHH ligands are integral to cranial suture development and regulation of calvarial ossification. (frontiersin.org)
  • However, sutures rescued from obliteration by removal of TGF-beta 2 activity did not have decreased levels of cell proliferation, but rather appeared to be due to inhibited differentiation. (nih.gov)
  • In this study, the authors sought to investigate the potential for cranial suture-derived mesenchymal cells to promote the osteogenic differentiation of adipose-derived stromal cells. (elsevier.com)
  • Conclusions: Suture-derived mesenchymal cells secrete paracrine factors that induce osteogenic differentiation of multipotent stromal cells (human adipose-derived stromal cells). (elsevier.com)
  • unilateral meaning that either the right side or the left side to the sagittal suture is fused. (wikipedia.org)
