Abstract

In moderate to severe plagiocephaly, the transverse diameter of the orbit on the affected side is consistently decreased. In these cases, the supraorbital rim has been expanded by the required amount and bone grafted. This makes for greater orbital symmetry and ease in obtaining the correct supraorbital convexity. Ten patients have been handled in this way with satisfactory postoperative results.
