Abstract

Secondary coronal synostosis appears to occur with an approximate 10% incidence after craniectomies not involving the coronal sutures, with 1% requiring surgical decompression. Patients with milder forms of scaphocephaly who were not operated on (1.2%) rarely developed an SCS. Long-term follow-up should be undertaken even in the milder forms for possible recurrence of secondary synostosis.
