Twelve patients with sagittal synostosis underwent correction between 8 months and 8 years of age. The patients underwent expansion in the parietal region of 4 cm and had a reduction in length of 3 cm following dural plication. Average follow-up was 2.2 ± 0.8 years (mean ± SD). While optimal treatment for sagittal synostosis may be obtained in the first few months of life, late correction of sagittal synostosis may be obtained in a safe and effective manner.
