Recognized as world leaders in craniofacial conditions since , the International Craniofacial Institute is on the cutting edge of advances in the medical industry that provide high rates of success for children affected by this condition. These sutures normally remain open to allow the skull to expand as the brain grows. Craniosynostosis can occur along a single type of suture line or several suture lines. The brain grows in the direction of least resistance.

Craniofacial Resection: Head and Neck Cancer Treatment
Craniofacial Restoration refers to surgeries performed to reconstruct a wide range of defects affecting the face, head and neck. The common goal of craniofacial reconstruction is to restore both Form and Function after devastating loss of skin, soft tissue or bone arising from trauma, cancer, or congenital deformity. Deformities after neurosurgical procedures can be reconstructed by cranioplasty of the frontal, temporal and parietal bones. Deformities after head and neck cancer resection can be reconstructed by a number of local and regional tissue flaps. Deformities after skin cancer resection or MOHS surgery can also be reconstructed with local and regional tissue flaps. A number of conditions may lead to a loss of calvarial bone the skull bone and temporalis muscle.

Craniofacial resection CFR has been regarded as a standard treatment for various tumors involving the anterior skull base. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of CFR for the patients with anterior skull base malignancies in our hospital. We retrospectively analyzed 17 patients with anterior skull base malignancies treated with CFR between and Mean follow-up duration was 41 months range, months.
