- Anesthesia was required for upper eyelid to scalp line from midline to lambdoid suture.
- The ipsilateral ear in lambdoid synostosis is displaced posteriorly toward the fused suture compared with the anterior displacement that occurs in infants with deformational plagiocephaly.
- Metopic craniosynostosis accounts for 7% of cases, and lambdoid craniosynostosis accounts for 1% of cases.
- Example sentences
- The condition can result from either premature closure of the lambdoidal suture (synostotic plagiocephaly) or positional head deformity (nonsynostotic plagiocephaly).
- There is little development of the lambdoidal crest but in some specimens it is slightly better developed than in others.
- The coronal, lambdoidal, sagittal, and squamosal sutures close clinically between six to 12 months of age but do not ossify completely until after 30 years of age.
