Plagiocephaly Prevention

Positional cranial deformities?

Positional cranial deformities are alterations in the shape of the baby's head that appear during the first months of life, when the skull is especially soft and fragile.
As the baby's brain grows, the cranial bones gradually expand to provide adequate space. If an external force (for example, a flat surface such as a crib) limits this expansion in a particular area, growth will be compromised in this area.
They are classified according to the area of the skull affected, although combined forms may also occur. The most frequent form is plagiocephaly, which accounts for up to 85% of cases.

PLAGIOCEPHALY

It is the most common positional skull deformity. 
It is characterized by the flattening of one side of the head on the back.
It is highly associated with muscular torticollis.

BRACHIOCEPHALY

Not only does it affect one side of the head, but the entire back area.
It consists of a considerably wide, short and flattened head at the back.

SCAPHOCEPHALY

It is also known as Dolicocephaly.
The flattening occurs on both laterals of the skull and occurs especially in premature babies.
It consists of an elongated and narrow head.
