Spring-mediated cranioplasty (SMC) is widely used in treatment of sagittal synostosis, and there are numerous publications evaluating the various factors impacting clinical outcomes, but none describing the possible association of secondary synostosis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the early post operative course of patients who underwent SMC and determine incidence of secondary synostosis, specifically unicoronal synostosis (UCS).
