Cranial vault reconstruction is surgery designed expansion and remodeling procedure performed when a child has craniosynostosis, or the premature closing of the sutures of the skull.

 

The cranial vault is the space within the skull that contains the brain. Cranial vault reconstruction is exactly what the name implies. At BSSNY, a multidisciplinary team comprised of a pediatric neurosurgeon and a craniofacial surgeon will remodel or reshape the bones of the skull expanding and enlarging the space within the vault to allow room for your child’s brain to grow while attempting to restore a more natural appearance to the skull.

Surgical Procedure

The craniofacial surgeon and the neurosurgeon work together to perform the surgery as safely as possible. The goals of surgery for craniosynostosis are to allow for normal expansion of the brain, relieve the pressure caused by the early suture closure, and restore or improve your child’s appearance and head shape.
