View from the Top (Frontal Synostosis)

Figure kran_9a_n.jpg and kran_9b_n.jpg: Clinical presentation of a moderate form of frontal synostosis. In moderate and slight variations of metopic synostosis the view from the top is more useful for a possible indication for surgery than the view from the front of the patient. $$kran_1&nr4??££See alternate figure§§. Figure kran_9a_n.jpg: In the view from the front the keel-like deformity is not very impressive. Figure kran_9b_n.jpg: The inspection from the top now shows a distinct bony ridge and a laterally insufficient roof over the visible right eye.
